    List of Available Symbols

    I'm looking for a list of all of the built-in symbols that come with MapPoint 2004. I thought I'd seen one somewhere, but I can't find it. Eg. it isn't in the help file or the samples directory.
    Anyone knows where there is one? Haven't found anything on Google of searching here yet. (Google gives links into the MSDN that are essentially copies of the help files).

    I know I can click on the pushpin symbol on the toolbar to get a list, but I need a list of what's available and the corresponding numbers to give to someone.

    Thanks

    Richard

    In Mappoint 2004 North America, if open the help file, go to "Programming information", then "Microsoft Mappoint Visual Basic Reference", then "Properties", then "Symbol property" there is a chart with the built in symbols and their number at the bottom of the page. It only goes up to 255 though, and I thought they added more symbols to 2004 so it might be incomplete. But thats the only one ive ever seen.

    Thanks John and GxW for the quick replies. Yes that's the table I was thinking of - I knew I'd seen it somewhere before

    Now why didn't MSDN, Google, and MapPoint help find them for me
    Must need another coffee (or my PC needs another coffee).

    Yes I thought there were more than 256, and if I remember correctly, they were inconveniently inserted in the middle?

    Hi,

    I have it in a bmp file nice ordered, where you eventually can grab it using x,y coordinatis. If you wants I upload it to my site or email it to you.

    Thanks for the offer Wilfried, but is your bitmap of the 256 pins (as listed on the above URLs) or the full 304 list?

    I have some pencil scribbles here of where the new pushpins have been inserted, and will probably be forced to produce my own bitmap, pasting the new ones in and renumbering accordingly.

    If I do produce a new bitmap of the full list, I'll upload it or get Eric to post it as an article.

    New pins: Flags (8 inserted at #64)
    Euro & Yen symbols (between #185 and #186)
    The numbers are extended from 20->50
    and there's a row of 8 symbols at the end of things like fire and medical symbols.

    Just make things a bit more difficult, the pins aren't in the same order as they appear on the toolbar in MapPoint. Eg. the new numbers start at 256.
