MapWindow: Loop through a shapefile and serialize the shapes to strings

Platform:MapWindow
Task:Loop through a shapefile and serialize the shapes to strings
Discussion:
One of the most basic things you might want to do is open a shapefile and loop through each of the shapes. This example converts the shapes to string and Debug.Prints them.
Example:
        'open a shapefile
        Dim WaypointsShapefile As New MapWinGIS.Shapefile
        WaypointsShapefile.Open("C:\temp\Projects\ARCN-VS18 Brown Bears\2010-05-25 2387S\2010-05-25_2387S_GPS76_Waypoints.shp")
        'loop through the shapes and output the contents of the first field for each shape
        For i = 0 To WaypointsShapefile.NumShapes - 1
            Debug.Print(WaypointsShapefile.CellValue(1, i))
        Next
        'close the shapefile
        WaypointsShapefile.Close()
