    It is possible to orientate the map

    I have build a navigation system for vehicle using visual basic 6 and I want now to customize it

    It is possible to orientate the map according to the direction in which the vehicle is moving for example if I am driven SE I want the map to be orientated SE an not north like mappoint do it

    I already have the orientation resolved but could not figured out how to face the map
    SE up instead or north

    Hi,

    Not possible, but however there could be a trick

    Check out the System.Drawing.Drawing2D namespace for the Matrix.Rotate(int angle) method.

    So first copy your map to clipboard, then paste from clipboard to a graphics. Then you can rotate the graphic. I never tryed something like this, and possible the whole thing will get pretty slow But is worth to try it.. also to not get your screen changing map drawings you should hide the original mappoint, and I dont know if you can copy to clipboard from a hidden control..
