    You could set the "Fill.Visible = False" but the trick might be to tell if they are overlapping!

    Code:
    Sub FillOval()
    
      Dim objApp As New MapPoint.Application
      Dim objMap As MapPoint.Map
      Dim objLoc As MapPoint.Location
    
      'Set up application and get a Location object
      Set objMap = objApp.ActiveMap
      objApp.Visible = True
      objApp.UserControl = True
      Set objLoc = objApp.ActiveMap.GetLocation(0, 0)
    
      'Create a shape at this location, then zoom to this location
      Set objMap.Location = objLoc
      objMap.Shapes.AddShape geoShapeOval, objLoc, 50, 30
    
      'Use Item property to access the shape and fill it
      objMap.Shapes.Item(1).Fill.Visible = True
    
      End Sub

    Hi Wilfried,

    If you made 2 radius on the map and the fill color was visible he was asking can you turn the fill off so you can see the roads... The overlapping is if they were on top of each other (some or all) does this make sence?
