Fading Map Tiles RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Silverlight you can use myMap.Mode.Content.Opacity=0.7 to fade the map and any attached items are not faded. In Windows 8 app there is no equivalent myMap.Opacity=0.7 fades both. Is there a solution?

  • Unfortunately no. We are currently rendering the map opaque for performance reasons. If you do not want an interactive map you can use the static map API to fetch an image that you can render with opacity.
