  • Hi,

    I'm using Bing Map 7.0  in one of my asp.net 3.5 web application.Showing mapinfo layers and some image on different latitude and longitude.This is working fine on IE,Firefox and Chrome.

    On Safari 5.2 when I zoom images that is drawn disappear.

    On Safari 3.2 everything seems to working in comparision to Safari 5.2 but map is showing in bottom right corner of div.It is not showing in full.

    Thanks

  • The list of "supported browsers" is not an exhaustive list of all those browsers in which the Bing Maps control will work.  Rather, it is a list of those browsers that Microsoft states will behave as stated with the Bing Maps control.

    You're using a browser that is not listed as a supported browser. That doesn't necessarily mean that it won't work. Rather, it just means that Microsoft won't support its use. That basically means that, if you encounter unexpected behaviour (as you have done), you'll have to fix it yourself...

  • Hi,

    Safari under WinXP is not a supported browser. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg427618.aspx

  • Hi,

    I know that The Bing Maps AJAX Control 7.0 support Safari Browser only on MAC.But in The Bing Maps AJAX Control 6.3 also does not support Safari browser in Windows but my web Application in  " Bing Maps AJAX Control 6.3" on Safari browser in Win XP environment working fine. In Safari 3.2 on windows XP map is displaying in bottom right corner but rest of operation (like zoomout and zoom-in,context menu display) working fine.In safari 5.1/5.2 map is displaying in full but when I zoom the map image appearing on map disappears.

    Question is that if Safari does not support Bing Map 6.3/7.0 on Windows then browser should show error message when we create object of map but this is not happening ? Or Even Microsoft does not know behaviour of bing map on Safari browser in Windows OS environment.

    Thanks
