    How to place shapes at a screen location?

    XYtoLocation works fine, until you save the map as a webpage and resize it. So what to do if you want to place a shape, say a textbox, on the bottom of the screen, then save the map as a small (300x240) .gif? Resizing it during the saveAsWebpage process seems to have unpredictable results as far as where the textbox will actualy be drawn on the small saved .gif.

    Workaround so far is to just draw the textbox near the center. It will be close to the center on the small saved map too. Is there a way to set the application map to the same size as the saved .gif (300x200)?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    If you use it as an activex control in a frameless window, you can make it any size you want. If you use it as an application object, the best you can do it to hid all of the toolbars and then set the size of the application to the size you need, adding some additional room for the system menu. see Application.Width and Application.Height properties.
