    Preventing the user from moving lines

    Hi all,

    I currently draw lines (between pushpins) to represent the approximate direction of travel of a trailer. The problem I'm having is the user can currently select the lines and move them about all ove the place.

    Is there anyway I can prevent the user from selecting the lines?
    Another somewhat related problem is that the lines appear above the pushpins. That's not inherently a problem - but when the user clicks a pushpin, the lines are getting selected. I need the pushpin to be selectable as it contains useful information.

    Many thanks

    Simon

    Hi,

    Put an event handler in SelectionChange. There you check if the user has selected a thing that you dont want. To unselect it draw some object in the ocean, select it and delete it.

    BTW you can do the same with the pushpins because they are moveable too.

    As for the ZOrder question, there is a ZOrder property on the shapes (lines) that you can set so that they are behind the pushpins.
