I need the Task Bar RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey Guys I am very desperate so maybe one of you can help me out

    I have a normal Webpage and i want to add the 'Task Bar'. When you open the normal bing maps page there is a bar right in the top center where you can activate the route planner feature. I need this feature. Is this even available in a custom map?

    Lg Tobias

    unction GetMap() { map = new Microsoft.Maps.Map(document.getElementById('myMap'), { credentials: 'bing maps key' }); Microsoft.Maps.loadModule('Microsoft.Maps.Directions', { callback: getDirections });

  • The Bing maps website is a custom site that takes the Bing map API and builds a bunch of custom UI and features on top of it. In this case the task bar you mention is something that was created for that site and it is not in the Bing maps API. That said, creating a similar task bar is pretty easy using basic HTML. The Bing maps v7 directions module doesn't include a built in UI for inputting requests, but there is a UI available for the instructions. You can find a good code sample here https://www.bingmapsportal.com/ISDK/AjaxV7#DirectionsModule2

  • Thank you for answearing my question. My problem is that I would need exactly this feature because I want to have the option to sort the destinations of the route per drag and drop in the list. Given your answear i assume that i have to build it myself. But thx again.
