Hi all,

Does GMap provide way to get lat/lon from an address or provide a way to geocode? If yes, could you please show me what (class) I should be looking for?

Thank you,

Hi radioman,

Thank you for your reply. I am using GoogleMap and it does not seem to have a function where it geocode an address. Could you please provide more insight? Thanks.

There is no function "GetPoint" for YahooMap. Could you please double check?
