    We have an application that has a large matrix on it.  Currently, the users have to use the scrollbars to scroll left/right & up/down to view everything.  I was wondering if I could use a RadMap and have my UserControl as the content.  I would like the users to have the ability to pan & zoom within the RadMap control so that they wouldn't have to use the scrollbars.  Is this a possibility?  If so, do you have any examples?

    Hi Jon Sprang,

    I’m sorry, but I’m not sure you can use RadMap this way. The map images are shown using MultiScaleImage control which accept only images as content to show. You can put arbitrary framework elements over the map by adding them to the InformationLayer, but these elements must be geographically positioned (has latitude-longitude set) and must bubble mouse events to RadMap in order to have pan-zoom work. You, actually, can try to do it using EmptyProvider (it doesn’t show any map tiles), but I can’t give you 100% guarantee.

    Best wishes,
