Hi,

I would like to add a button to my mappoint toolbar that will launch the shape name utility. Any ideas?

Thanks

I assume you use it a lot and don't like to do to Tools | and then click Shape Name Utility?

You cannot add things to things to the MapPoint toolbar unfortunately.

If the Shape Name Utility had a shortcut you could go Alt-T | Alt-S or whatever, but I don't think it has a shortcut... you have to add it to the source code and then recompile.

Note that some application put a little doohicky up by the Minimize, Maximize, Close buttons. I don't know how you would do it, but that's the only way I can think of to make custom buttons more readily available in MapPoint since you cannot modify the toolbars...

Yeah Eric...exactly! I am just seeing if there is anything easy out there. I don't think so.

Thanks for the reply!
