Has anyone maaged to get custom pushpin images to be displayed in 3D mode

In 2D mode, I'm able to display the custom pins, but in 3D mode, it uses the standard pushpins.

I found the following thread, http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx PostID=1089933&SiteID=1 and have appended the base URL (currently its http://localhost:2265/ for testing) to the image name.

According to the Virtual Earth Map Control SDK, "Other map enhancements, including pushpins, custom pushpin and tile layers, polylines, and polygons work in both 2D and 3D mode maps."

Thanks,

Carl J

Carl,

I've posted a thread on how to display custom pushpins in 3D here:

Hope that helps,

Thanks Derek ...

What I've done to get it to work is replace http://localhost with http://127.0.0.1 (actually, I'm retrieving the IP of the host computer, instead of its hostname, but currently that IP resolves to 12.0.0.1).

It seems that retreiving an image from http://localhost is the same as grabbing it locally.

Derek, I'll have to check out that VECustomIconSpecification and SetCustomIcon ... looks like they could be useful Smile
