How can I import external bookmark (.dat) using ArcEngine

Discussion created by tim2u on May 18, 2011
Does anyone know how to use arcObjects (specifically ArcEngine for me) to import a bookmark (saved as a .dat) that was created and saved externally using ArcMap?

I have an ArcEngine application that uses the ControlsMapManageBookmarksCommandClass, but this does not have Load/Save options that the ArcMap bookmark control does.

I've searched all documentation and forums with no luck.
