Make clickable UI-elements for windows Phone 8.1 apps maps RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows Phone 8.1 App , C#

    I would like to let the user add Pushpins ( which apparently are called MapIcons ) to the map and when the user clicks the newly created Pushpin some other ui-elements should appear.

    But apparently MapIcons are not clickable and you can not inherit from them since they are sealed, so no luck in making them clickable.

    I tried to just extend from Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.Button , but those have not Location, probably because the do not belong to the Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.Maps-namespace. So I can not really add them to the Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.Maps.MapControl.Children or Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.Maps.MapControl.MapElements, since they will not be on the map where I would want them to be.

    So how do you make a clickable ui-element that I can give a location on the map?

    I already was here


    But I don't see how I can add clickable elements to my map

    I could write something like this of course

            <Maps:MapControl Grid.Row="1"

    But this MapIcon again is not clickable and it also staticly coded. I want to add mine dynamic.
