My program creates a set of locations and a set of pushpins. If the locations are too close together, then it skips a pushpin. Later I want to address all the pushpins but can not use the same counter as locations. Is there a programatic way of checking if a pushpin is present at a location?

if mapobj.pushpin().select = true then ...............
Thanks

Hi,

Several approach possible. The most easy is to give each pushpin an exclusive name, then you can use FindPushPin();. If you know the location and want to see if a pushpin is there you can use ObjectsFromPoint() or FindNearby(). Also you can keep a list of all the pushpins in an array in your application. Using the latter you have it all in control yourself, and it will be probably faster also.
