I really hate MapPoint!  :)  I have an address in a variable named 'address' which looks like this (Street, City, State, Zip).  I'm trying to add a Push Pin to the map, with this address, but to no avail.  I always have problems programming MapPoint.  

Here's the code I have.  I get no errors.  However, no push pins appear on the map.  TIA.
AxMappointControl1.NewMap(MapPoint.GeoMapRegion.geoMapNorthAmerica) ' start new map

' ***
' address (variable) is defined here...figured you didn't need to see the code for that, and placed into a variable named 'address'
' ***

           ' plot this address onto the map
            Dim oPushPin As MapPoint.Pushpin
            Dim oMap As MapPoint.Map
            oMap = GetObject(, "MapPoint.Application").ActiveMap
            oPushPin = oMap.AddPushpin(oMap.FindResults(address)(1), "some text here") ' set pushpin to the current customer street address
            oPushPin.Location.GoTo() ' zoom in on last pushpin drawn

Your code works fine for me.  What version of Mappoint and VS are you using?  I tested with Vs2010 and MP2010.


        Dim oPushPin As MapPoint.Pushpin
        Dim oMap As MapPoint.Map
        oMap = GetObject(, "MapPoint.Application").ActiveMap
        oPushPin = oMap.AddPushpin(oMap.FindResults("1600 Pennsylvania Ave, washington dc")(1), "test") ' set pushpin to the current customer street address
        oPushPin.BalloonState = GeoBalloonState.geoDisplayBalloon
        oPushPin.Location.GoTo()

I uninstalled MapPoint and reinstalled - the pushpins now appear on the map.  LOL.

Even though your code didn't really fix my problem, I appreciate the help :)  It turns out, I guess, that a setting, or something got corrupted somewhere.  The reinstall fixed it :)
