Hello,    

In order to display images next to the legend items, you can refer to the following code snippet which result is illustrated in the below screenshot: 

public RadForm1()
{
    InitializeComponent();
    new RadControlSpyForm().Show();
 
    string cacheFolder = @"..\..\cache";
    BingRestMapProvider bingProvider = new Telerik.WinControls.UI.BingRestMapProvider();
    bingProvider.UseSession = true;
    bingProvider.BingKey = bingKey;
    LocalFileCacheProvider cache = new LocalFileCacheProvider(cacheFolder);
    bingProvider.CacheProvider = cache;
    this.radMap1.Providers.Add(bingProvider);
 
    this.radMap1.ShowLegend = true;
 
    this.radMap1.MapElement.LegendElement.TitleElement.Text = "Legend";
    MapLegendItemElement legendElement = new MapLegendItemElement("10", Color.FromArgb(227, 242, 253));
    legendElement.TextElement.Image = Properties.Resources.blue_london;
    legendElement.TextElement.DrawImage = true;
    legendElement.TextElement.TextImageRelation = TextImageRelation.ImageBeforeText;         
    this.radMap1.MapElement.LegendElement.ItemStackElement.Children.Add(legendElement);
 
    legendElement = new MapLegendItemElement("100", Color.FromArgb(144, 202, 249));
    legendElement.TextElement.Image = Properties.Resources.blue_paris;
    legendElement.TextElement.DrawImage = true;
    legendElement.TextElement.TextImageRelation = TextImageRelation.ImageBeforeText;           
    this.radMap1.MapElement.LegendElement.ItemStackElement.Children.Add(legendElement);
 
    legendElement = new MapLegendItemElement("1000", Color.FromArgb(66, 165, 245));
                legendElement.TextElement.Image = Properties.Resources.blue_vienna;
    legendElement.TextElement.DrawImage = true;
    legendElement.TextElement.TextImageRelation = TextImageRelation.ImageBeforeText;
    this.radMap1.MapElement.LegendElement.ItemStackElement.Children.Add(legendElement);
}

Thank you very much for your help. And that your guide helped me a lot. I did not quite understand the explanations you gave me. Do you mean that here I can not ask my questions?
Or is it that it takes a little time to answer the questions without having to ticket support?

 

Thanks....

Hello,     

In order to eliminate the border, you can simply set the MapLegendItemElement.ColorElement.DrawBorder property to false.

I hope this information helps.

Hello,      

Indeed, the provided code snippet hides the border. But it was not clear to me what exactly needs to be eliminated. In order to hide the rectangle itself, you can set the MapLegendItemElement.ColorElement.Visibility property to Collapsed.

Hello, Victor,   

The default MapLegendItemElement internally contains a MapLegendItemColorElement and a MapLegendItemTextElement which are derivatives of LightVisualElement. If you want to extend the MapLegendItemColorElement, feel free to add more LightVisualElements. I have prepared a sample code snippet for your reference which result is illustrated in the below screenshot: 
        public RadForm1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
             
            BingRestMapProvider bingProvider = new Telerik.WinControls.UI.BingRestMapProvider();
            bingProvider.UseSession = true;
            bingProvider.BingKey = bingKey; 
            bingProvider.EnableCaching = false;
            this.radMap1.Providers.Add(bingProvider);
 
            this.radMap1.ShowLegend = true;
 
            this.radMap1.MapElement.LegendElement.TitleElement.Text = "Legend";
            CustomMapLegendItemElement legendElement = new CustomMapLegendItemElement("10", Color.FromArgb(227, 242, 253));
            legendElement.Product = "London";
            legendElement.Liters = "2000";
            legendElement.TextElement.Image = Properties.Resources.blue_london;
            legendElement.TextElement.DrawImage = true;
            legendElement.TextElement.TextImageRelation = TextImageRelation.ImageBeforeText;         
            this.radMap1.MapElement.LegendElement.ItemStackElement.Children.Add(legendElement);
 
            legendElement = new CustomMapLegendItemElement("100", Color.FromArgb(144, 202, 249));
            legendElement.Product = "Paris";
            legendElement.Liters = "1300";
            legendElement.TextElement.Image = Properties.Resources.blue_paris;
            legendElement.TextElement.DrawImage = true;
            legendElement.TextElement.TextImageRelation = TextImageRelation.ImageBeforeText;           
            this.radMap1.MapElement.LegendElement.ItemStackElement.Children.Add(legendElement);
 
            legendElement = new CustomMapLegendItemElement("1000", Color.FromArgb(66, 165, 245));
            legendElement.Product = "Vienna";
            legendElement.Liters = "2300";
            legendElement.TextElement.Image = Properties.Resources.blue_vienna;
            legendElement.TextElement.DrawImage = true;
            legendElement.TextElement.TextImageRelation = TextImageRelation.ImageBeforeText;
            this.radMap1.MapElement.LegendElement.ItemStackElement.Children.Add(legendElement);
        }

        public class CustomMapLegendItemElement : MapLegendItemElement
        {
