    I am using VS 2010 with Telerik Reporting Q3 2014.

    Telerik's Map Wizard to create Map Report item requires user to provide Location Provider's client token. But Bing recently changed its token-based API to key-based so that next button in the wizard would be disabled when entering API key. Is there any way to resolve this issue?

    Hello Taesung,

    In the Map Wizard we use the term "Client Token" as a generic definition, because the location providers tend to name their validation keys differently. Actually the Map Wizard doesn't check the validity of your Bing Maps Key - it just passes it as an argument to the geolocation query as explained in Bing Maps REST Service documentation.

    In case you do not have a valid Bing Maps Key, you should obtain one from here. If you are experiencing any issues and suspect that your key might be a problem, please check the Http Response with Fiddler or a similar program. In case your key is invalid, the response would be 401 Unauthorized.

    Hope it helps.
