    I'm hosting the WPF control in a WinForms project. I currently have a label positioned over the map for informational messages, such as 'drawing map' or 'no data selected'. However when the map is resized or panned, the label and/or the map are drawn incorrectly, or not at all. Is there a built-in overlay available in the map that is fixed to screen coordinates, rather than geographic coordinates? Similar to how the mouse position and scale never move.

    Hi Jason,

    The map control does not have a built-in overlay which allows to fix items to screen coordinates. But you can just add an element after the RadMap element to show it over the map control.
    The sample code is below.
    <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">
        <telerik:RadMap x:Name="radMap">
                <telerik:OpenStreetMapProvider />
        <TextBox Text="Info Message" HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Top" Margin="10" />

    All the best,
