    Hi

    I'm looking for pointers on how to geocode entered address on fly and capture location.  Basically I have an order form with address fields, as the user enters an address I'd like to geocode this address and display on RadMap.  I'd also need to capture the location from the RadMap so that If the user needs to view the order at a later stage that I can just use the captured location to display on RadMap without having to geocode the address a second time.

    Whats the best way of doing this with RadMap?

    Thanks
    Paul

    Hello Paul,

    I would recommend you to take a look into the following samples in our demo application:

    http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#Map/Search
    http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#Map/Geocoding

    I should notice you that Bing map services have different geographic coverage for different regions. So search service can work or cannot depending on it. You can find information about Bing map services geographic coverage here:
