Sample app for MAP control

I have an old Windows XP app that used ESRI MapObjects LT to display map data in form of .shp files. MapObjects LT doesn't work with Vista/7/8/10.

I discovered the map Control that can display this data so I want to try to port my application to Windows 10. Is there any sample apps for Windows forms that shows what you can do with this Control.
I would like to look at that code and see how I can modify it so that it suits my needs.

Hi Jörgen,

We have created map sample with world map ESRI file in windows xp machine. When we are porting the application in Windows 7/8 machine, it’s working same as previous one.

Please find attached sample in below link.


Replace your ESRI shape file in this project. If you are still facing the same problem, kindly provide your ESRI shape file

I figured out how to load the map by myself. What I was hoping for was a more advanced sample app that shows all that the Control is capable of like zooming, paning, Printing etc.

One thing I would like to do with this example is to select one country (Sweden) and have the map zoom into the selected country, ie. northern europé/Scandinavia.

Something else I would like to do is click on Another country and select it and get the name of the selected country.

In my real World example I have a map of a city with layers for house properties, buildings, roads, lakes, rivers, etc. In my app I can have information about a property, a building or a lake and I want to select that object in the appropriate layer and zoom the map in on that object.

Hi Jörgen,

Query 1 : zooming, panning, Printing support in map control ?

Map zooming and panning can be achieved by using mouse scroll and currently, we don't have support for printing option for map control.

Query 2 : To select one country and have the map zoom into the selected country?

We can achieve your requirement by setting "EnableZoomOnSelection" property to true. Once we enable this property we can select particular shape and the selected shape will be zoomed.

Query 3 : click the country and select it and get the name of the selected country ?

you can use "ShapeSelected" event and get the selected shape name from the event argument "data".

We have create simple sample based on above requiremnt and attached into below link.
