    Drawing more than one route at a time

    Hi,

    I'd like to draw more than one route at a time. Because MapPoints object model knows only one route object, this seems unpossible. Maybe there is a solution to generate some shape from a route?

    TIA
    Chris Werner

    Hi,

    An approach could be to have multiple instances of the Mappoint object in several threads, drawing their route, and copyToClipBoard when finished. Of course all threads have to synchronize as yo have only 1 clipboard. Also it will eat a lot of memory

    Thanks for the answer. Okay, calculating different routes in different threads may be possible. But how to make this trick with the clipboard?

    Sounds a mess, Wilfried!

    At first it seems that a route's coordinates can be extracted and these could be used to draw a polyline shape. However, the locations supplied by MapPoint are intended for "ideal viewing" of each segment, and not for reproducing the route.


    One solution (used by TourSolver - see my website for details) is to use your own data and routing engine. This works well but the data costs, of course.

    Hi Richard,

    Sounds a mess
    Yeah, but my brain sometime is a mess also

    Looked at Toursolver. Seems very good. Will think on you when I need that feature !

    Thanks!

    Thanks for all your effords (messed or not ). It seems that I (and my customer) have to abstain from this feature. That's deplorable.

    Thanks again,
    Chris Werner
