    Hi,

    Can you clarify your question ? The pushpin not is exacly the size as the data you put in to it. Putting 10 lines in it and 5 columns (eg separated by a TAB charcatter) will make it larger than putting just "hello" in it.

    Thanks for the response Wilfried. You are right the pushpins' note size increases automatically based on data but only to a certain extent. I have to display around 22 lines of information. So what is happening the size of ballon is automatically increasing upto say 15 lines and after that i have to go down using keypad.

    Is there any way to control the size mannually?

    Hi,

    No you cannot. But as always there are workarounds depending on imagination First question: is it really nececary to show all these lines ? Maybe you can show the nececary, and by clicking or right click or with shift or wathever you can popup a form with the other information.

    Wilfried I have to ask whether is it OK to display only important information. So you mean is it possible to capture whether a pushpin is selected or not and if yes can I get the name of the selected pushpin.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you are writing your own code, then yes you can capture a pushpin selection and get the name of the pushpin that has been selected. You can probably use the SelectionChange event, or you could try the BeforeClick and MouseDown events also
