Shape to be drawn on the map displayed in the Map control. This shape can be described using one of the following types of variables:
  • Once the shape has been added, you can use its name (Name property of the associated variable).
  • If the shape has already been added to the Map control or if it is invalid (e.g.: polygon with an insufficient number of points), a fatal error will be displayed.
  • To delete a shape drawn in a Map control, use MapDeleteShape.
  • To modify a shape drawn in a Map control, use MapModifyShape.
