How to enable the map style selector? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    i've developed a simple acsx-page with a Bing Maps control. It works fine, expected two little issues:

    1. In IE8, i see only one tile of the map - the tiles around are not loaded. I fixed these with using the IE7 compatible-Mode in the MasterBase. Now it works.

    2. But the Map Style Selector does not work. Mouse-over doesn't expand the choice of map styles, a click also doesn't expand it (the zoom in and zoom out scale works with mouse over). Any ideas?


    Thanks & Greetings from Germany

  • I'm assuming you are using the Bing Maps AJAX control (assuming version 7).

    1) I recommend ensuring you are using the correct doctype and metatag values as documentated here:  Also make sure you are specifying a position, width and height property for the map div. Also, make sure you do not have compatibility mode turn on in IE (this mimics old browsers which are not supported).

    2) Likely related to the above.
