Map Control blocks the UI Thread RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using Map control in my application. When network is too slow, any control on the page using Map control either doesn't respond or responds too late and sometimes application crashes too. What may be the reason? Is it due to Map control is blocking the UI Thread until it loads completely? Please suggest me some solution.

  • Is this a Windows Phone 7 application?

    IIRC, The Bing Map control uses the MultiScaleImage control to render map tiles.

     There is a known issue with MultiScaleImage control where it can block the UI thread while downloading sub-images.  The problem is more noticeable on slow network connections.
