    The birdseye view option is disabled when I use the bing maps provider, and setting it via code doesn't appear to download the tiles and displays an all gray map.  Am I missing a setting somewhere to turn this on?

    this.radMap.Provider = new BingMapProvider(MapMode.Road, true, "mykey");
    this.radMap.AllowedCommands = "Road,Aerial,Birdseye,IsLabelVisible";

    Hello Kevin Sonney,

    The Birds Eye mode works for zoom levels 19 and 20 only and not all earth regions have tiles for this mode. To get "Birds Eye" command enabled in UI you should set map zoom level to 19 or 20 using mouse, or zoom slider (i.e. maximum zoom-in). The same is true for the code -- you should set ZoomLevel property to 19 or 20, and then switch provider to the Birdseye mode.

    Hope this helps.

    Understood, but thats a bit confusing.  It should behave like the bing maps website and switch over and automatically zoom in to the appropriate zoom level.

    Hello Kevin Sonney,

    Unfortunately, the change you requested is not in our plans for Q3 2010 and it does not seem to be a trivial one. I will make sure it is reconsidered when discussing our future plans, but I am afraid no certain time frame can be given at the moment.

    All the best,

    Andrey,

    Will you have the same "Automatic" functionality that www.bingmaps.com has.

    Go here: http://www.bing.com/maps/#JnE9LmJvc3RvbiUyYm1hJTdlc3N0LjAlN2VwZy4xJmJiPTQyLjM3NzYxNDkxNDUyNDglN2UtNzEuMDI4MzM0ODI2NTQ3OSU3ZTQyLjM2MzQ0MjM1NjgzOTYlN2UtNzEuMDU4NzYxODA1NjEyOA==

    Select "Road" then "Automatic."
    Then zoom to Boston and watch the map change automatically to "Birds Eye."

    This would be a great feature because the user doesn't need to think.

    To be continued...

    Todd

    P.S. I just read Kevin's reply, which is the same as mine above. He's correct it really needs to be automatic.

    Hello Todd,

    We will implement this functionality in the future releases of the RadMap control. You can check availability of this feature using our PITS:

    Hi Nandhakumar,

    I cannot find the attached image. Can you please rename it to something else (like "birdeyeview.png") and send it over again? Also, can you explain what do you mean by saying that the map doesn't load properly and at what coordinates you are zooming?

    Thank you for any information you can provide.

    Hi Martin,

    When i try to zoom beyond level 19, the bird's eye view is enabled but when i click that view, the map displays nothing, instead of showing route, it shows fully grey colored map. Am not able to see map in bird's eye view...

    Hi Martin,

    See the below images. Telerik map routing doesn't show the routes clearly beyond particular zoom levels. Please give some suggestion to this.

    Is it possible to find and draw all possible routes between two locations in telerik RadMap using BingMap provider in c#?

    Hi nandha,

    As Andrey stated in one of the previous replies the BirdsEye mode loads tiles only if the specific region contains such. Otherwise, this mode won't be enabled. If this is not the case you can check the following issue report logged in our feedback portal that might be related to your case. You can follow the report in order to be notified as soon there is any change in its status. 

    About the blurry routes, we are not aware of such behavior. Can you please elaborate more on this case by telling me on what zoom level the blur occurs and how you are drawing the route. Also, a runnable code snippets demonstrating your implementation will be quite useful in investigating this.

    As for all possible routes, note that this is quite relative term because a possible route between two locations could tour the entire continent regardless the distance between the locations. I guess you mean, the top shortest routes. In both cases BingMapProvider doesn't support such functionality, it only finds the most short route between the locations. However, you can check the BingMaps API and see if it allows getting the information that you need. If so, you can create a request to the API in code and based on the return results draw map shapes on the RadMap control.

    Since, your last two questions are not related to this topic, I would ask you if you have any further questions on the matter to post them in separate forums or support tickets. This way searching in the communication history (forum or support threads) will be easier.
