Hi.

I have a mappoint control in my vb6 app and I use the entire map of Europe but I only need to use a country each time, like France. I load the map using this line:
mappointcontrol1.newmap(mappoint.geomapeurope)

How to load only France? Is it possible?

Thanks.
RAPZ.

It's not possible to load only one country, but I have a few thoughts.

1. after loading the map, zoom to France.
2. have several ptt templates, one for each country that is "pre-zoomed" to each country, and then open the ptt instead of the default map
3. cover up the adjoining countries using a white polygon, take a look at this -- Map Individual States (http://www.mp2kmag.com/downloads/individual.state/) I realize the example files probably won't open in MapPoint Europe, but you can get the idea just looking at the outline map of California.

hope this helps,
Eric
