Can't see map on WinForm

Hi All,

I have downloaded the WinForms Demo and the source code for SharpMap V0.9, I had a look over the source code and I thought that I would give the demo app a run to see how it all looked but when I run the WinForms demo there is no map displayed.

I have clicked the load button and opened a shape file(the one that comes with the demo and my own) but nothing is displayed, when I hover my mouse over the area where the map should be it changes to the pan cross cursor and the layer is also added to the control on the side but nothing is displayed.

Could someone please help me I would really like to get this working.

P.S I don't know if this will help but when I try and add the mapimage control to my toolbox I get a Asp Host Permission.

Did you try the 'zoom to extents' button?

We should build a version that zooms to extents after the first load though.

Thanks for that Paul, I didn't even think of that.
