Google Maps in VB.NET WinForms Application

Post icon  Posted 04 August 2008 - 02:43 AM

Hey guys!

I am following this tutorial
( http://www.vbdotneth...VBQuickMap.aspx ) to put googlemaps in my WinForms Application. It runs well except that the browser control in it brings in the whole googlemaps website. Is there anyway i could show only the map in the browser control?

I tried creating my own google maps using google maps API in a .jsp page and used the url (http:\\localhost:8080..) in the tutorial (above). I can see the map but the search form isnt working on the new url. I used www.wikimapia.com too, but the search form isnt working with this URL either.

My form needs to be able to search longitude/latitude and address in the google maps through a search form in the application.

I am new to vb.net. I dug out a lot of articles from the internet regarding this but dont understand half of them and even if i did, i had trouble implementing them. :o

This is my school project (due in 4 days:eek: )
I have tried creating the world map using shape files. They weren't accurate and proper shapefiles werent available for all the countries and cities in the world. Right now i am trying to use the browser control to bring in the google maps.

Any sort of suggestions, ideas and guidance are most welcome. Thank You!
