    Wink Map Point Resource Books

    Does anything like this exist? For 2004 or 2006. Or am I limited to MSDN? Or better is there another reference on the web?

    Just curious...

    Thanks,

    Tbird

    Re: Map Point Resource Books

    Firstly I'd recommend the Help file if you don't already use it extensively.

    The book "Programming MapPoint in .NET" has a lot of material on programming MapPoint.

    I'd also recommend to scan the topics at MapPoint Articles - MP2K Magazine

    Also, search this forum for any MapPoint related topic

    site:mapforums.com - Google Search
    ( just add your query string after site:mapforums.com )

    It probably won't break anything.

    For Excel there is this page --
    Working With Excel and MapPoint
    with some Excel examples to get you started.

    Also, the book MapPoint for Dummies actually includes lots of code and it's all VB6 or VBA, so I'd recommend that in addition to the book Programming MapPoint in .NET. The code in Programming MapPoint in .NET is C# I think but the syntax is similar enough to VB that it's still a good reference.

    Finally, I would take a look at our Routing and Programming Tools Spreadsheet, drop me a Private Message with your e-mail address and I will send you a copy.
