Map setView animation in v8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've been reading that v8 of Bing Maps doesn't have much animation support due to the changes to HTML5 canvas.

    In v7, you could make it smoothly animate to a location on the map by doing:

    map.setView({ center: location, animate: true });

    Is there any way of doing this in v8, any workarounds or functionality I've missed to achieve this, or is this a planned feature for an upcoming release?

    Thanks,

  • This isn't currently supported and there isn't any workarounds that I've seen that work well.

  • There plans to revisit this to see if it can be added, but no guarantee it will be at this time.

  • Hi @Ricky_Brundritt - do you know if this has been planned as of yet? Our client are unhappy about the degradation of animations!

  • We do plan to add support for animations, but don't yet have a timeline that we can communicate.
