    How to create a "rotated" rectangle in Mappoint

    Does anyone know how to approach the following problem. I need to be able to draw a rectangle that can be filled with a color. The rub is I need to be able to display it rotated (to look more like a Diamond shape vs the regular rectangle). I know the center point and each of the 4 corners of the rectangle.

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Spideybud, why does your name sound very familiar? Were you active on here in 2002 or 2001?

    There's an AddPolyline method that should work for you. If you try to freeform draw the diamond shape, you can then go back and delete the points along the side.

    best,
    Eric
