    Getting the cursor to look like a MapPoint pushpin

    Greetings,

    Does anybody know how to turn the cursor into a pushpin? I need to do this to show the user that the next time the cursor location is clicked on that a pushpin will appear.

    Is there a way to get the image from the Symbols collection? Do I need to? I suppose I could create bitmap file of the cursor and make a custom cursor.

    Has anybody had experice with this?


    Thanks,
    Bob

    Hi,

    The image of the pushpins is in the help of mappoint. Also you will find it on this site, including some additional or extended symbols. Dont have the url at hand but this site has a search eninge

    For the cursor look for CreateIconIndirect Windows API function.
