Hi,

I am trying to create a nice looking raster map from vector data, damn complex.

One necesary thing is place the road labels in the road direction. MapInfo seems to do it by default. Does the SDK support that? I found something on label rotation in:

But do I have to select the rotation angle per angle? Or is there an automatic way?

Thanks
Oscar

    Oscar,

    If you have a label assigned to a line it will automatically be displayed oriented along the longest on-screen segment of that line. You don't have to do anything special to enable this behavior.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,
