Directional Arrow

Thu Sep 02, 2004 7:37 pm

I want to use an arrow (icon) that points to a fixed point on a map.


I could create 360 bitmaps with an arrow that points at each degree, work out the degrees between the fix and the fixed point and have the program then select the correct arrow (icon) to position on the map??

Is there a simplier way??

I would use lines to draw the arrow.

May i ask how to calculate the bearing to that second point, i am unable to get a angle that i can use for my directional arrow. See topic: http://forum.gpsgate.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=12130&SearchTerms=lat/lng
