Bing Maps for Javascript and UWP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    In a Windows 8.1 Store App there was a "Bing Maps for Javascript" library to import.

    Now with the new Universal Platform targeting Windows 10 Apps, how can I use maps?

    Many thanks.

  • You can continue to use the JavaScript maps from Windows 8.1, as they have not changed. Or you can use the built in .NET map control which is more powerful and more widely used in Windows apps.

  • Sorry but I don't understand your suggestion about using the .NET Map Control. My App is using WinJS.

    Thanks in advance.

  • The .NET Map control suggestion was an alternative to using the WinJS control. As I mentioned you can continue to use the Windows 8.1 JavaScript map control in your app.

  • Before using the .NET Map Control, should I make a XAML/C# Project, right?

    Many Thanks.

  • This response doesn't make sense. Is it possible to use the .NET map control from HTML/JavaScript? If so can you please share how?

  • There is no way to reference the UWP map control from within a web browser. If you are building a local application that is based on HTML/JavaScript using some framework like React, then it is possible.

  • I have a Windows Store UWP that is built using HTML/JS. No React involved. The Bing Maps JavaScript SDK for Win8 worked in my app for years but it is now suddenly crashing my app on startup and it is affecting many users.
