  • Using Virtual Earth in a WPF Application

    Thanks for your insight. That takes me back to using Silverlight with the VE map inside the web browser control. Unfortunately you lose Drag-n-Drop between Silverlight and the WPF app; as well as some databinding and pure managed code events. Not to mention the XAML would need to reside in the VE map control project, not the WPF app.
  • Using Virtual Earth in a WPF Application

    Great Screencast!

    I played around with Virtual Earth and WPF a while back but ran into Z-Order and DOM issues. Looks like the latest version of the WPF browser control and your "layered window trickery" solves most of the issues.

    However, I think the real power in doing something like this would be XAML pushpins with dynamic colors and numbers. I imagine just keeping the hidden top layer buttons visible and using a small transparent gif for the ve pushpin would do it. You'd lose the pushpin mouseover but I guess you could use the button mouseover event at that point. A custom dashboard would be needed to prevent the XAML buttons from covering it as well.  Any other thoughts? Thanks!
