Location as DependencyObject RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • The Bing Maps for Windows Store SDK defines the Location class as a DependencyObject. This is fine, except I am parsing a lot of data into Locations, and would like to do so on a background thread, but can't, because DependencyObjects must be created on the UI thread. I've had to create a proxy object an then convert it back to a Location as-needed instead.

    This isn't a question, just feedback for a future release. It would be nice if Location was just a struct, so I can create hundreds of thousands of them on a background thread quickly.
