I have been programming in VB 2005 for a year and want to incorporate MapPoint 2006 into the app.
The app is tabbed, and I want to place a map "window" for the users on a full size tab.
I have read about the OCX and Control, but cannot figure out how to implement this correctly; using the control as a "Reference" and folowing the Mappoint_Demo instructions this launches Mappoint in its original form. I do not want to do that, I want to launch a limited map, feed by coordinates to position the location of the map, and allow for a few tools like zoom, print and a few more. It would be like launching "MapQuest" type view.
Can someone help get me started with either loading a Mappoint Control to use from within the toolbox, or creating the code to launch a map as described above?
I know allot of you are allot more advanced than this and I would be very greatful for any hrelp you can offer.
