Bing Maps AJAX Control v7 Update This Week RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • We are currently planning to update the Bing Maps AJAX Control v7 sometime this week over the next few days.  The update is reverse compatible with previous versions, so you do not have to do anything in your code for the update.  However, please let us know if you see any issues come up.

  • Can we expect to see any new features? Introduction of curved geometries, perhaps, to mirror those in SQL Server 2012 launched today?

  • Infoboxes no longer work with version 7.0.20120307150742.63. And by not work I mean instructions to set the "visible" option to true has no effect.

    Sample test case:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <script src="http://ecn.dev.virtualearth.net/mapcontrol/mapcontrol.ashx?v=7.0"></script>
    <div id="mappy"></div>
    var Maps = Microsoft.Maps;
    var options = {
          center: new Maps.Location(42.996981,-81.254196),
        map = new Microsoft.Maps.Map(document.getElementById('mappy'), options),
        infobox = new Maps.Infobox(new Microsoft.Maps.Location(42.996981,-81.254196), {
          visible: true,
          title:'My title'

  • did you make any changes to v6.3?

    I no longer see the bing logo (using any browser) and firefox 10.0.2 doesn't show tile layers anymore (these items were working yesterday)

  • Don't know about the Bing logo, but can confirm that custom tile layers appear to be broken in v6.3 Firefox and Chrome.

    I would check with IE as well, but I can't seem to get any of the v6.3 iSDK samples to work on that anymore: http://www.microsoft.com/maps/isdk/ajax/

  • I recall that when FF4 came out, tile layers were broken on v6.3. But then later (perhaps a month later?) they started working again and had been working until this morning. Thats when I noticed the bing logo was no longer in the lower left corner.

  • I can't get my custom tile layer to work in IE 9 or Firefox. It is working for me in Chrome and IE 9 if it's in compatibility mode. I sent an email to technical support.

  • Custom shapes in v6.3 cannot be drawn.  Here are the steps to reproduce this bug

    1. Go to the officialplayground
    2. Customize shapes > Add custom shapes
    3. A layer should appear on the map (top right)
    4. Add a polygon
    5. IE8 & FF this draws a zooms in; IE9 does nothing

  • Yes, there are some issues with v6.3 that we are actively working on rolling out a fix for.  They should be fixed very soon.

  • We are currently using the htmlContent option in the InfoBox and have links in the custom callout box. On Thursday, we were able to click on those links but as of Friday Morning, we are no longer able to click on those links in Firefox, Chrome, or Safari. They work in IE 8. Please Help.
