    Hello !!!

    Using a kmlreader. How can I read the placemark name tag or description tag in the kml file?.
    Need it to display some MapPintPoints with the text from kml file.
    Example from my kml file.

    <Placemark id="0">
          <Snippet maxLines="0">

    Hi Fredrik,

    Current version of KmlReader copies the value of the "name" tag to the Text property of MapPinPoint. It is used for KML Point element only.
    We have the following opened PITS issue about KML name tag of Placemark:

    The 2010 Q3 version of RadMap will contain additional functionality.
    Each map shape and map pin points will contain the ExtendedData property. The extended data will be created from the KML ExtendedData tag and to additional it will have Placemark.Name and Placemark.Description properties.

    Best wishes,
