    Display questions

    Hi all,

    I am just a beginner with Mappoint. My problem is that once I've mapped the data on the map, I would like to display only the mapped territory.
    I'm not sure I'm very clear, so let's explain with an example :
    - I want to highlight departments in France considering the volume of sales in the departments
    - Once this is done, I would like to display only France, and not the countries and seas around France
    - I would also like to delete regions' names, how could I do that ?
    - Is it possible to display other regions names instead (existing in an Excel file for example) ?

    Thanks very much for your answers.

    Etienne

    No good news for you I'm afraid. However, you could draw a shape around the area you want to see and have a fill color block everything else but it would need to be drawn freehand.

    Re: Display questions

    Hi locuelas,

    That is where MapPoint's Territory Wizard comes in.

    Try this:

    Make an xls file in Excel that 3 columns
    1) ID - Fill sequentially 1 to n
    2) Postal Code - any zips you wish
    3) Territory - named assignment for each zip
    Save and close.

    Open MapPoint, go to the Data Menu>Territories
    Either import or link the xls file

    MapPoint will immediately recognize what you want
    to do, as long as the xls file is set up correctly.
    (It MUST have a column named Territory)

    Re: Display questions

    Hi,
    thank you for your response, but I would like to do this programmatically. Is this possible?
    Is there any way to do it? (any example, any documentation,...)

    Thank you for all.

    Hi locuelas,

    Yes, go to MapPoint Help
    Look under Programming Information
    Look under Methods
    Scroll to ImportTerritories

    Re: Display questions

    locuelas,

    Please explain?

    No matter what development environment are you using,
    the reference to the MapPoint library is clearly marked
    as is the reference to the MapPoint ActiveX control.

    Are you a developer? If not, I am.

    Re: Display questions

    Hi,
    I need to display a map showing a set of zip codes. I think it isn't very difficult, but I have to get it as soon as possible and I don't know very well the MapPoint API.

    I would like to know if there's an example to get it programmatically (in C#). Can you help me?

    Thanks.

    Sorry, if VB6 doesn't help.
    I'm learning C# also, I'm sure it's easy ...
