<p>In case you missed the news, last week we released the <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=27165">Bing Maps WPF Control version 1.0</a>.&#160;&#160; Here is the original announcement from the Bing Maps Blog: <a href="http://www.bing.com/community/site_blogs/b/maps/archive/2012/01/12/announcing-the-bing-maps-windows-presentation-foundation-control-v1.aspx">Announcing the Bing Maps Windows Presentation Foundation Control v1</a>. </p> <p>The Bing Maps WPF control allows you to build Bing Maps applications using managed code for <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms754130.aspx">Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)</a> applications.&#160; The interface supports multi-touch with rotation, translation, and scaling and also works with the <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/surface/">Microsoft Surface</a>.</p> <p>We have added several bug fixes and improvements since the <a href="http://blogs.msdn.com/b/keithkin/archive/2011/08/26/bing-maps-wpf-control-beta-released.aspx">Beta release</a> last August including the following:</p> <ul> <li>Added <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.maps.mapcontrol.wpf.maptilelayer.aspx"><strong>MapTileLayer</strong></a><strong> </strong>class so you can add your own custom tile layer overlays to the map</li> <li>Added <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.maps.mapcontrol.wpf.mercatormode.aspx"><strong>MercatorMode</strong></a><strong> </strong>class so you can instantiate a map control with no default tile overlay. You can use this with the MapTileLayer to show your own tiles as the base map overlay.</li> <li>Added SSL support to the Map.&#160; See <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.maps.mapcontrol.wpf.map.usehttps.aspx"><strong>Map.UseHttps</strong></a><strong>&#160;</strong>and <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.maps.mapcontrol.wpf.map.urischeme.aspx"><strong>Maps.UriScheme</strong></a><strong> </strong>properties for more details.</li> <li>Added support for hiding the scale bar control overlay. See <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.maps.mapcontrol.wpf.mapcore.scalevisibil ity.aspx"><strong>ScaleVisibility</strong></a><strong> </strong>property on the Map.</li> <li>Improved map panning inertia so it now works with the mouse as well as touch.&#160; You can turn on map panning inertia with the <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.maps.mapcontrol.wpf.map.useinertia.aspx"><strong>UseInertia</strong></a><strong> </strong>property on the Map.</li> </ul> <p>Thanks to everyone who participated in Beta and gave us feedback. We were able to make a lot of the improvements you suggested on the <a href="http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/vemapcontroldev/threads">Bing Maps Development forum</a>.</p> <p>You can download the control here: <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=27165">Bing Maps Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) Control version 1.0</a></p> <p>For more details see the <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh750210.aspx">Bing Maps WPF Control SDK</a></p><div style="clear:both;"></div><img src="http://blogs.msdn.com/aggbug.aspx?PostID=10259080" width="1" height="1">
