    Hi there,

    when using the Map control, do I need to get also a licence from the map provider (Bing->Microsoft)?

    Kind regards,

    Hi Sörnt Poppe,

    If you would like to use the BingMapProvider (Microsoft Bing Maps), you would need to provide your own Bing Maps Key in order to use the RadMap control. Once you obtain it from here, you need to pass it to the provider like this:

    RadMap1.Provider = new BingMapProvider("your-Bing-Maps-Key-goes-here");

    Alternatively, you can use the OpenStreetMapProvider that does not require any additional licensing like this:

    RadMap1.Provider = new OpenStreetMapProvider();

    Hope this helps.

    Sincerely yours,
