I've started using the Telerik UI WinForms Map control, and have seen some samples using MapRectangle.

However, I can't find this class anywhere in the Telerik namespaces. All I can find is MapPolyline and MapPolygon.

My referenced assemblies are:




Am I missing an assembly reference?

I appreciate any guidance you can provide.

Hello Scott,

Straight to your question. Telerik UI for WinForms suite does not provide RadMap MapRectangle and MapEllipse shapes out of the box. Those shapes are provided by Telerik UI for WPF suite if you want to use them out of the box.

However, you can create your own MapRectangle and MapEllipse classes that inherit MapPoint and add your custom logic. Then you can use them as follows: 

int rectangleWidth = 200;
int rectangleHeight = 100;

MapRectangle rectangle = new MapRectangle(location) { WidthInKm = rectangleWidth, HeightInKm = rectangleHeight }; rectangle.BackColor = Color.FromArgb(125, Color.LightGreen); this.radMap1.MapElement.Layers["CustomShapes"].Add(rectangle); MapEllipse ellipse = new MapEllipse(location) { Fx = rectangleWidth / 2, Fy = rectangleHeight / 2 }; ellipse.BackColor = Color.FromArgb(125, Color.LightCoral); this.radMap1.MapElement.Layers["CustomShapes"].Add(ellipse); this.radMap1.Zoom(5);


You can see the MapRectangle and MapEllipse logic inside the attached project - "". Note that when you create your custom shapes you will have to pass them location, which corresponds to the top left point for the MapRectangle or the center for MapEllipse, width and height values (in kilometers).

The end result will look like this:
