    Moving groups of pushpins to front

    Hello all,

    So I have a map which I really do not want to have to make again. The problem is I mapped the Points Last which I should have mapped first so I need to move those pushpins to the back or the first pins to the front. I need to do this so I can see that first set of Pins when i zoom out because the second set is much larger they cover the first set up


    thanks for the help

    Hi,

    I'm not sure, but I dont think there are methods to hide/show pushpins or brinttofront/sendtoback. However there are always workarounds

    I dont know your code, but what you could do is assign a bitmap to the pushpins you want to hide. this bitmap can have Transparancy to true, this way it is invisible if it has only the transparant color. The transparant color is the color of the pixel 0,0 (the first top,left).

    thats a great idea I ended up doing it a bit different though because i had imported the groups separately I was able to copy the group underneath and paste it in again and when it is pasted it goes on top so that works too

    thanks a bunch though
