Acknowledge/Unacknowledge does not work with our customised objects and
maps because these options only work properly with objects in the
topology database.

Hence we are trying to introduce an alternative mechanism. 

The Programmer's Guide describes how to make use of callbacks for
standard Netview events but it doesn't look like you can add new events.

Can anyone suggest a method for sending a customised event to our map
application based on an object that has been selected from a submap? We
would only be changing the status of symbols on our customised maps and
we would leave the standard Netview IP Internet submaps well alone.

The best I can think of so far is:

1. Add the new Netview option to the ovw registration file.
2. Select an object via a symbol on the maps in the normal way.
2. Select the new option on the Netview menu and generate an event using
something like snmptrap passing the selected object as a parameter to
the event.
3. Our map application handles the new event and updates the colour of
the map appropriately.

Is there a more elegant solution that has eluded me?

Thanks for any help.
