Hi, I am currently working on a gps tracking system using mappoint 2006 activex controls. I have been able to setup a route by adding a list of waypoints to the route object, and can display the route. However when i display the route a white box with timing information ect pops up at the top of the screen. I have found that this can be hidden by calling

axMapControl.ItineraryVisible = false;

However this only works once the box is displayed, meaning that the user sees the box appear for a short time before it is hidden. I have looked for a property to disable it from being shown at all, but have had no look.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Hi,

Yes you have to set this after calculating. And user see it flicker for a moment depending the machine. If you really want to hide it, then you can hide the map for a moment with a copy of itself.

Create a panel, put and dock it on the mappoint control, put a bitmap image on it, copy the map to clipboard, copy it to the bitmap. After the route calculation destroy it all. But maybe this can flicker too ? I did not tryed it.
