    Probably because it is speaking with a Californ-E-A accent


    My free-with-Shredded-Wheat Collins English English dictionary says "awkward to do or use".

    Eg. Threading a needle can be fiddly.


    VB is great for things like quick form design, quick COM->MapPoint (etc) writing, but it always seems a bit high level for the things that C/C++ is suited.

    Spy++

    Hi Wilfried, sorry I'm slow in responding. I don't visit too often these days. But I have visited for years, from back in the days when this was posted

    http://www.mp2kmag.com/articles.asp?...apPoint.extend

    It will explain about using Spy++ (which comes with Visual Studio) to extend MapPoint, better than I can.

    A warning though, from personal experience... There seems to be a reason that some features from MapPoint are not offered through methods in the ActiveX control. Some features don't work quite right if you call them from the ActiveX control (using the PostMessage method). But the optimize with the dialog seems to work great from my experience.

    I understeand the WM_COMMAND message. It is sent when accelarator key's are used or when menu item is selected. But where do you get the WParam value from ? I know it is notif code and ident but how do you know both of the values ?

    Maybe I have to check Spy++ as you mention. What is URL of it?

    Unfortunately I doubt it. VS 2003 doesn't ship with it. I still maintain some legacy code, so I have VS 6 which has it.

    Hi,

    You right. VS2005 beta2 (witch I have) does not seems to have it. Just got VS2005 standard (not beta), but not yet installed, probably same thing

    Thanks for help anyway
