    I'm attempting to conform to the MVVM paradigm for my project. I'm already binding to a LocationCollection, which I use to plot points for a polygon on the map. This is working fine using the following:

    <telerik:InformationLayer Name="informationLayer">
        <telerik:MapPolygon Points="{Binding MyPolygon}" />

    I'd like to add additional information in the form of images that are dragged and dropped onto the map. I have no problem manually adding images using the following in the code behind:

    RadMap map = (RadMap)e.Options.Destination;
    Location dropCursorLocation = Location.GetCoordinates(map, e.Options.RelativeDragPoint);
    Image img = new Image { Source = new BitmapImage(new Uri(@"..\Resources\MyImage.png", UriKind.Relative)) };
    MapLayer.SetLocation(img, dropCursorLocation);

    I'm fine with everything in the view model up until I add the image to the information layer. The MapPolygon typed works well for my polygon, but what should I use for my images? Should I add another type under the InformationLayer section? If so, which type should I use?

    Hi Sean,

    The information layer is an items control. So standard binding and templating features work for it. I would recommend you to take a look into the following sample in our demo application:

    Thank you for the reply. I was actually close. I didn't realize you could have multiple information layers, which was necessary for my task.
