    are you saying that ".Line.Visible = False" does not work? Can you show what code you have tried?

    Re: Shape Visibility

    I understand Aussoft's problem. There seems to be a nice little quirk wherein you can have either the line visibility set to false OR the fill visibility, but not both. So, if you put a shape other than a line on the map, you can't hide it. Basically you have to programatically add and remove the shapes instead of making them visible/invisible.

    This one was also brought up with textboxes. Still waiting to see if there's a better solution.

    MapPoint Visibility

    2000 lines in MapPoint. Every line has a name: "R_" & idstart & "_" & idfinish.
    I want show or hide one kind of lines but the solution is remove or add.
    This process is too slow.
    I've tested all the imaginary ways to hide a shape or a line. No way.
    Thanks Jhon Meyer and the anonymous guest for your time.
    I will go on in my project and if I know the solution I'll post here.

    Thanks everybody!.

    Just came across this problem as well. Got round it by using the Fill AND Line Visible properties like this:

    shp.Fill.Visible = (chkShow(CHK_SHOW_DIRECTION).Value = vbUnchecked)
    shp.Line.Visible = Not shp.Fill.Visible

    The value of the check box determines the visibility of the line shape.

    Is Mossoft saying it IS possible to have both Line and Fill NOT show?

    In all the threads on this topic, Mossoft is the only one that seems to have gotten this to work?

    But I'm not sure he was actually talking about the same problem.

    Re: Mappoint visibility

    Yes this will not work with a Freeform shape - as the fill will make it appear as a polygon.
    Perhaps it is a simple two point line, or a two point freeform line? (the latter would have an infinitely thin fill).

    Re: Mappoint visibility

    How can you have a thin fill?

    I tried no fill and then a line weight of "0.0001" but it still appears the same as a line weight of "1".

    Re: Mappoint visibility

    Yes all line weights < 1 are drawn as 1 pixel.
    Imagine a freeform shape that is defined by only two vertices: that shape cannot mathematically have an area (although MapPoint might try to draw a line - I haven't tried it: just speculation for Mossoft's post)

    Re: Mappoint visibility

    Oh a thin fill, I see. Genius!

    I'd like to apply this to textboxes, any thoughts there?
