    Showing a pushpin on top of a shape (polyline)

    Is there a way to show a pushpin on top of a shape (at the same location)? When I have both objects on the same location the shape (polyline) is showed over the pin. Shapes do have a Z-Order that works for combination of shapes but the order does not affect pins.

    Thanks,
    Tieme

    The solution

    The answer to your problem is to select the shape in question. Right click and select the option Order/Send Behind Roads.

    It appears that when a shape is set to be behind roads then the shape will always be behind the pushpins regardless of any instruction to send to front or send to back. To revert to having the shape in front of the pushpins then select Order/Bring in Front of Roads.

    hope this helps.

    The following shows how you might do this for every shape programmatically:

    Code:
    Dim myShape as Mappoint.Shape 'Prevents MS Office ambiguity.
    For Each myShape in mapApp.ActiveMap
       myShape.ZOrder geoSendBehindRoads
    Next
