bing maps in asp.net application RRS feed

  • Question

  • User351619809 posted


    I have list of facilities on my web page so for example I have

    ABC store1
    ABC store2
    XYZ store3

    on my web page

    I want when the user clicks on a particular store, I can pass the directions in a querystring to see the directions in bing map.

    I did lot of research and  found that bing provides the web services that I can call from my asp.net application. I was wondering someone has some code like this, I just want to see the one click directions when user clicks on the particular location.

    Any help will be appreciated. I also got the key from bing api's

    I have used VirtualEarth in one of my app.. But you should download Microsoft.Live.ServerControls.VE.dll

    I am just pasting the code below..Once you have the dll in Bin folder you can just register the dll in which ever page you want

    aspx page

    <%@ Register Assembly="Microsoft.Live.ServerControls.VE" Namespace="Microsoft.Live.ServerControls.VE"
        TagPrefix="ve" %>

    <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server" />
                <ve:Map ID="VEMap" runat="server" Height="500px"   Width="730px" ZoomLevel="12"  
                Center-Latitude="40.764015" Center-Longitude="-73.982797" />

    CSharp Code Behind

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

        double lat = double.Parse(Request["lat"]);

        double long = double.Parse(Request["lat"]);

       string description = "Some description";



    private void AddShape(double latitude, double longitude, string description)
            LatLongWithAltitude point = new LatLongWithAltitude(latitude, longitude);
            Shape shape = new Shape(ShapeType.Pushpin, point);
            shape.Description = description;
            shape.CustomIcon = "images/yourImage.gif";

    Also you can point mulitple location too

    Hope this helps
