I've been using the getLists operation in the Live Spaces block to pass through push pin information to Virtual Earth but when I pass through the url where source = Live Spaces & value = LiveSpaceURL the Web Address entered in the record is not being picked up even though other data in the same record is.

Similaly when passing through the Description or ListDescription the complete html for the Live Space List entry is being passed as below. NB in this example only "Rest Bay" should be displayed as the description.

<p><a href="http://www.bbc.co.uk/wales/southeast/sites/surfing/pages/restbay_webcam.shtml">Porthcawl</a></p><p>Rest Bay</p><img src="http://c.services.spaces.live.com/CollectionWebService/c.gif cid=-3204039445281679685&page=RSS%3a+Porthcawl&referrer=" width="1px" height="1px" border="0" alt=""><img style="position:absolute" alt="" width="0px" height="0px" src="http://c.live.com/c.gif NC=31263&NA=1149&PI=81856&RF=&DI=3919&PS=85545&TP=undermyfeet-co-uk.spaces.live.com&GT1=undermyfeet-co-uk">")...

Don't suppose you could share your mashup along with it's name and you user name So we can have a look at it. Thanks! Smile

Hi Andy, as requested I've shared my mashup Wales Beach Cams v0-1, user name relwob. If you run it as it is it seems to run fine, but if you view the console you will see that the url value is 'undefined' and the description is the full html code as mentioned previously. If you remove the description input value in the Virtual Earth block (fed from Live Spaces block) no details are shown against the push pins but I would expect to still see the url. Any suggestions / fixes would be gratefully appreciated.

Hi, the URL value on virtual earth is the URL of the pushpin image, if VirtualEarth can't find the URL or if it's undefined it will place a red flag at the location, which is what it does currently. The link that you have for description isn't just a URL it's some HTML that contains a link so it can't really be used as the URL for the pushpin image. Was there anything that you wanted to set the pushpin image to

Hi Andy, I didn't realise the URL value is the URL for the pushpin image, thanks for explaining this for me

No problem it isn't that clear really :-(. Alas it makes perfect sense if you work on it day in and day out ;-). Thanks for the post though.
