    How do I make a MapPoint COM+ AddIn form non modal. AGPS provides this functionality letting the user click in the Map and still keep the AddIn form active.

    I don't think you can. The add-in form is running inside the MapPoint process: when the form is launched, you don't get a new task bar item. If the form isn't dismissed before MapPoint gets focus, there is no way to retrieve the form.

    Is it possibe then to pass a reference of the objMap to another app so this other app could minipulate the open map???? THX

    As an example of what I wnat to accomplish; take a look at AGPS - Advanced GPS for Mappoint. It shows up in the AddIn's menu but has it's own taskbar icon and users can click and work in the map when the form is active.

    How do I do this????

    Thomas, as COM+ AddIn are COM objects, they are not necesseraly hosted 'in-process' so you could write an out-process COM AddIN backed by its own application and have this type of 'non-modal' behaviour.

    Another way to go is to have a COM AddIn behaving as a bridge between MapPoint and your other Application.
