Problem with MouseMoveEvent, Scale in C# application

Jan 18, 2013 at 12:26 PM


I'm beginner in using MapWinGis. I use SharpDevelop and my program is in C#. I try to load raster (img, geotiff, etc) and show current coordinates in labels, current scale, measure distances, Iąve read a lot of forums, documentation in VB and I can't get rid of problems.

This is a for my test application:

 So what is wrong with current cordinates mouse cursor? (I think if I solve this problem I will be able to write method for measure) how can I show current projection? It possible to reproject raster? And last question do I need write a event for legend that I uncheck raster in legend, this raster disappear from map?

Please help with my problems. I wasted a lot of time so I decided to write this post.

Best regards Slawek

One point of help: On the form loading event you should set the Map property which sends the mouse move and mouse down events. Otherwise you will not receive those events.

I've done it. 

this.axMap1.MouseMoveEvent += new AxMapWinGIS._DMapEvents_MouseMoveEventHandler(this.AxMap1MouseMoveEvent);

But it doesn't work.

I was actually looking for this line of code:

axMap1.SendMouseDown = true;

	AxMap1.SendMouseMove = True

for example see:,6332

That was it. I haven't seen SendMouseMove. I am very grateful for Your help.

I would like to ask You for three more things:

- show current scale of map

- how to reproject images in map?

- how to connect legend with map that means if I uncheck layer in legend this layer disappear in map and if I check, layer appear.

Can You help me with this last problems? Thank You very much if You can and if You can't :)

Can you ask only one question at a time?

Please create new posts for your remaining questions and we will try to answer them.
