I have a set of pushpins in a map which each have a name that follows the format "a number & some text"
In my vb application then have a list of all pushpins in a listbox, the list box contains the number part of the pushpin name.
what i would like to happen is when the user selects a number from the listbox the appropriate pushpin is then selected in mappoint
I have the following code
Dim objPin As MapPoint.Pushpin
Dim objMap As MapPoint.Map
Dim gappmp as Mappoint.application
Set objMap = gappmp.ActiveMap
Set objPin = objMap.FindPushpin(Me!listbox)
Where Me!listbox is the listbox on my vb form. However as the listbox only contains the number part of the pushpin name (and this is all it will ever hold, i don't wish to change this) it can't find the pushpin as it is clearly looking for the whole name.
I would like to know is it possible to find a pushpin based only on part of the name, instead of the whole name.
I would be very grateful for any help.
