How can I select a country from a map?

27 New Member
Gentle Community Members,

I want to display a form with an image, the map of Europe.
How can I achieve that the event handler displays the information belonging to the selected country.

I have discarded the usage of complicated polygon and elliptical shapes.

I have found out another way. I download a map with borders of countries. I fill each country with unique different color. If the user clicks onto a point then the event handler reads the color of it. I will include a table in my program in order to select the country having the chosen color and display the information connected to this country.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. SELECT COUNTRIES.INFO1,COUNTRIES.INFO2 FROM COUNTRIES WHERE COUNTRY.COLOR IS [COLOR_OF_PIXEL_X_Y]
  2.  
How do you like this idea?

I am a beginner in C#.
Please help me in event handling and table generation and queries.

I have found a map and I colored it. I collected country codes, names and RGB triplets in an Excel table.
Regards
Frank

Thank you Gary.
I think that I can close this thread. Maybe I start a new one in the folder of C# database manipulations.

I am working with an HTML-based form that uses a select element that requires about 200 options. Is there a way that I can load, or select one of these options from a file, rather than hardcode them into the select element? Thanks

Trying to insert into a history table. Some columns will come from parameters sent to the store procedure. Other columns will be filled with a separate select statement. I've tried storing the select return in a cursor, tried setting the values for each field with a separate select. Think I've just got the syntax wrong. Here's one of my attempts: use ESBAOffsets go
