    Does the Map control for telerik make use of bing maps sessions when accessing bing maps? We are looking into options to replace the Bing Maps Silverlight control but we want to make sure the costs of using bing maps won't be affected.

    This is part of the text on the link below on how silverlight control works

    >> Any time a session that uses the Bing Maps Silverlight Control is
    >> started with a valid Bing Maps Key, one transaction is counted. A
    >> session begins with the load of the Bing Maps Silverlight Control into a
    >> user’s browser and ends when the browser is closed or the user moves to
    >> a different page.

    Hello Fernando,

    By default, our BingMapProvider constructors set the useSession parameter to true and activate this feature. This basically, gives the ApplicationId (the BingMaps Key you need) to the Bing Maps Rest Services and the service returns sessionId string. We use this ID string to associate it to providers and map source objects which download the map Images. When downloading, the ulr used by the service uses the session ID.

    You can check our BingMapsProvider help article too for further information.
