    Number of Shapes and Order

    Sorry, not got my code handy

    When you draw shapes onto a Map, so for instance I draw two large circles, then small circles in each.

    Then using code, get a loop by using the shapecount.

    How does the loop iterate through, by the sequeces of the drawings? By top to bottow, by colour lol

    This determines if I have to rewrite the code, which would be complex.

    Thanks

    Steve

    Just to add

    I need to process the Large first, then the small next.

    Would using layers work

    MapPoint numbers the shapes according to the order you've added them.
    Z-Order enumerates the layers from top to bottom.
    If you need to process in a certain order, such as largest to smallest, you should create an array and sort by width or height.
