    How to find a pushpin from a mouse-click

    I'm writing a simple standalone mapping app, and need to detect which pushpin a user has clicked on. I've tried the following

    MapPoint.FindResults findresults = Map.ObjectsFromPoint(e.x, e.y);
    object index = null;
    for (int i = 0; i < findresults.Count; i++)
    {
    ... etc
    }

    but it doesn't return any pushpins, only streetnames/countries, etc. When you click on a map, you get a popup with the things close to where you clicked, including pushpins, so it must be possible.

    thanks, A

    Hi,

    You can use SelectionChange event for this. There you check if the selected object is a pushpin, if it is you can check which one by comparing it's name. Eventually you can have also in your application an array of pushpins. then you can compare by the objects address.
