I'm currently on my 30-day evaluation of the MapPoint Web Service.
I have an interesting problem with most the MapOptions.Style property. Here's a list of all the styles available through the Style enumeration:
In my case, only those styles you see denoted with a "***" suffix actually work. The others give an error when I try to use them. So, that means, of 28 available styles, 9 of them, or less than a third, actually work for me.
So, my question(s) is/are:
(1.) Is this simply a phenomenon of being on my evaluation version? In other words, will these styles work once I "pay up" for the real thing?
(2.) Is this a regional thing? Like, the styles that aren't working, maybe they work in a different part of the world?
(3.) Are these styles that don't work basically on a "to do" list at Microsoft? Like, they *plan* on implementing all of them, but so far have only gotten around to 9?
I'm starting to demonstrate MapPoint within my company, and I'm having a hard time explaining why 70% of the map styles in the drop-down list in my ASP.NET app don't work. Folks get pretty excited when they see the list, but are pretty disappointed pretty quickly.
Thanks for any help on this.
