Bird's Eye View UI Options RRS feed

  • Question

  • Regarding the Bird's Eye map mode, are there any options for it which would allow me to hide components of the UI? For instance, Street Side mode has a StreetsideOptions object which allows the hiding of the various UI components. I am wondering if such an object exists for Bird's Eye since I have been unable to find any documentation on it or any mention of it at all through online searching. Additionally, if it isn't supported/implemented currently, are there plans to do so in the near future?

  • Hi SFREP,

    What components would you like to hide?  You are referring to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/bingmaps/v8-web-control/map-control-api/streetsideoptions-object and there indeed is not a similar item for Birdseye but potentially the thing you want has a different trigger in that mode of the Web control.

    We'd like to be able to hide the Heading/Rotate button as well as the "Address" overlay which also includes an exit button. The two overlays interfere with custom functionality we have implemented. Any help or suggestions is/are greatly appreciated.

    Sincerely,
    SFREP

  • Hi SFREP,

    For things that apply to all map types, take a look at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/bingmaps/v8-web-control/map-control-api/mapoptions-object

    Look at options like "ShowBreadcrumb" and "ShowDashboard" as I suspect these are the two you want to set to "false" but there may be more in here that might interest you as well.

    Sincerely,

  • IotGirl,

    Thank you so much for the suggestions and your time! We actually do utilize a number of these options already (including the ShowDashboard) option.

    I guess we'll have to wait and see if any changes are made to the API in the future which will allow us to hide the UI components.

    Sincerely,
    Chad

  • Hi Chad,

    You wish to be able to suppress the direction / rotate UI specifically.  I will reach out to the V8 Control team with that request on your behalf.

    Sincerely,

  • IoTGirl,

    First, thank you for doing this on our behalf! Second, to be clear, we'd also like to be able to suppress the UI component at the top which has the address, an exit button, and the "Show Labels" option as well.

    Thank you for your time and efforts on this!

    Sincerely,
    Chad

  • Hi Chad,

    I have asked the team to include a link to this post in their work item.  Hopefully they will reach out here if they have any further questions.

    Please note that they work on an AGILE schedule so I can't provide any timeline for your request to be reviewed.

    Sincerely,

    IoTGirl
