Missing set_ShapePointImageListID?

Aug 19, 2013 at 9:06 PM
Hi to all, I'm muddling along through the tutorial, and thought I'd gotten my first project just about completed.. But now I've hit a stop line.

I'm following the "UsingMapWinGIS.pdf" file at :, and I'm trying to set up a layer where, dependent on a field in my shape file the points have a different icon on the map.

, The problem I get is when looking at the example code on page 36, the set_ShapePointImageListID property is used, and when using this in my code, I get a Runtime Error 438 : Object doesn't support this property or method.

Is there a substitute to the point image list, and is there a reference to how to use it somewhere online? Ideally, I don't want to revert back to an older version if it can be avoided.

My environment is Microsoft Access VBA.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry for the post - I've now found the ShapefileCategories class, and I'm going to have a play with this over the next day or so.

Does anyone have a link to either VBA, VB6 or VB.Net code examples that allow me to do what I need to do? I'm trying to break down the c source in the example and can't quite fathom it out.

EDIT I've found Paul's example here : - which is 90% where I want to go with this, and still seems to be an error - I've commented on that thread, and am happy for a moderator to delete this thread if they see fit..
