    Pushpins toggle off on

    I am currently developing a VB6 application that uses mappoint. I have a large, very large dataset. I also draw shapes on the map. I would like a means to "hide" the pushpins at times (perhaps a menu option) and then show them again with another menu option. Basically I want to toggle the dataset off and on.

    I think this would be much faster than to reloading the thousands of records in this data set.

    In addition, is there anyway to prevent the editing of the pushpin balloon and deletion of a pushpin? Modification to the pushpins should be controlled by the program, not the user for this application.

    One thing you might try is making a small transparent custom symbol for the dataset and switch to that.

    There was a recent article on making Pushpin Immoveable, see the articles section.

    Hope that helps,
