Thanks Peter.  I've now started rebuilding our MapInfo 16 app using the old ribbon examples into MapInfo 2021 with the new functions. Is there any additional documentation on the control property values RibbonControls.def? For example, how would I get the controls in a CTRL_TYPE_DROPDOWN_BUTTON to ...

Does anyone have tricks to allow passing of a parameter to buttons created in the new ribbon interface? For example if I had a button to add a red or blue feature to a map based on Splitbutton.  I would share everything in the code besides the style of the new feature. Something similar to how it was ...

We're using MapInfo for emergency response with a MapBasic data collection application. Does anyone have any tips or tricks for settings that help make MapInfo more usable without a standard keyboard/mouse?

Bill: We had the same issue where IT has pushed out a change that corrupts MapInfo's ability to open MS Access table.  I tried it in MapInfo 19.3 (Build 43) and it also freezes.  So far the only fix is to reinstall the original database engine each time IT patches which is not great. ------- ...

I was able to get the layer open with MapInfo 19 and then open the TAB file connection using MapInfo 16. There was a difference in the Image Format dropdown between the two versions that I didn't notice before. There seems to be a zoom layer limitation on the return data for certain layers. ​-95.602, ...

Until the ability to add a page in the middle of a layout is available does  anyone have any strategies they use to add a page? We create layouts where the order of the pages is important for map books and comparing the extents of each page during review.  I'm considering saving the map window ID's ...

I'd like to add some custom text to one of the default tools on the mini-toolbar. I found an example of how to add a new tool with a custom tool tip but not how to modify the existing mini-toolbar. Specifically I'd like to add an additional message to the Ruler tool tip.  I am using MapInfo 19 ...
