Application Object : Map Property

Glossary Item Box


Returns a reference to the global Map object.

Property type

Read-only property


Set variable = object.Map

Return Type

Map Object


The Map object is exposed globally. That means you can directly access the properties and methods of the Map object from any routine without first obtaining a reference to that object. For example, the following VBScript code displays the X coordinate of the pointer location in a message box:

Sub DisplayXLoc
   Dim objTheMap
   Set objTheMap = Application.Map
   MsgBox CStr(objTheMap.PointerX)
End Sub
Since the Map object is global, the above example can be shortened to the following one line example:

Sub DisplayXLoc
   MsgBox CStr(Map.PointerX)
End Sub
