Hi everyone,

I am just getting started, but can not seem to get things to work. I have been to the Create Map FAQ, but think I am missing something in the setup.

I have the reference added and can see the diff properties and methods. Can someone explain the parts I need; how it loads a map, how it hooks up to the database, etc...

hello h_a_w_k,

this is a bit vague, what is it you're trying to do and what is not working?

I found my way into SharpMap by looking at the various samples. If you're going for WinForms, the WinFormSamples project is the way to start. You can find if you download the source via svn or from the source code tab.

I want to get started. I added the exact code in the Create map FAQ and nothing. So how do I add a map? What references do I need? Where do I find the WinFormSamples project? If it's on this site I guess I am just missing it. Thanks

My advice would be to download sharpmap solution from codeplex or with some svn client.

That way you have lots of sample code (WinFormSamples, ExampleCodeSnipplets) to get you started.
