    Possible to create multiple Symbols?

    Hello mappoint programmers, it's been a while not working with Mappoint, but because I'm rewriting my C++ application to C# I have some questions to understand Mappoint better.

    In Mappoint there is a class Map.Symbols which supposes to hold all the symbols in the map. But does it mean I can't create multiple Map.Symbols objects so I can save groups of symbols in several Symbols bucket?

    What I tried to achieve is to create a Map.Symbols object for each group of symbols (i.e. client pushpins, PR pushpins, Fleet pushpins etc...). But if multiple objects of type Map.Symbols are not possible, than I need to solve my problem in a different way.

    Thank you.

    MapPoint doesn't do it - for MapPoint there is only one Symbols collection, but you should be able to create arrays or collections of Symbols yourself. ?

    Thank you for your reply Eric,

    You made me confirm my assumption about the Map.Symbols.
    I already made a collection of Symbol.ID's, which I use to get the right symbol from Map.Symbols.

    Thank you very much my friends!
