Sounds interesting! How to use that? Simply copying it into the file folder? And where does it resurface then?

Crashes, look at screenshot. Crash_Export_DLL_Map.PNG.2cd20306de9d3c773985d2c29245a564.PNG

Thanks Ralf, I can strip that part out, I started testing three map approaches, one of them web-browser based.  But that isn't the one I'm using for this interim tinkering though it may well be the ultimate destination.

version 002 uploaded, all I did was remove the web browser tab, no functional improvments.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I have installed the application in the latest version of the program (downloaded from here).

I put the Mapwindow folder inside C:/Matrix/HCU and the dll inside the exportdll folder. Do I need any third-party plugin? When I run the program I get this:

 

error 1.jpg

Ah yes, I do need to post up a newer version.  Please remove the dll until I get the newer one uploaded.

Not seeing enemy forces/adhering to visibility/detection status I agree is a good next step.

You can only restore the window if you don't have an ExportDLL that is lined up to the bottom of the HC window.  So in a default install you have DigMilArt.dll which would hide the minimized window.  If you disable those types of ExportDLLs (I renamed mine to DigMilArt.dll.bak) you will then see something like  image.png where you can restore the MapWindow form.  Please do keep in mind the MapWindow ExportDLL is just a proof of concept at this time.  It doesn't do much but when people show interest it encourages me to keep expanding the functionality and someday it will be useful as a result.
