Hello Moin,

You can use ESRI shapefiles to show continents. You can find example here:

Hi Andrey,

First of all thanks for the reply.

I have seen the sample link, but what I want is to dispaly 2 conitients with similar color. For example Asia and Australia in Red, South America and North America in Gray etc when map loads and I also want to show some information on top of every area(combination of continents) which will be clickable.

Please let me know the approch for this.

Hello Moin,

The map shape objects which represent items from the shape file have properties which can be used to change their appearance. The set of the appearance properties is the same as standard Silverlight Shape object has. You can use MapShapeReader.PreviewReadCompleted event to loop through the map shapes and set appearance depends on the continent name. For example:

<telerik:RadMap x:Name="radMap">
    <telerik:RadMap.Provider>
        <telerik:EmptyProvider />
    </telerik:RadMap.Provider>
    <telerik:InformationLayer x:Name="uxFloorPlanLayer">
        <telerik:InformationLayer.Reader>
            <telerik:MapShapeReader Source="/LoadShapeFile;component/Data/world_continents.shp"
                    PreviewReadCompleted="ShapeFilePreviewReadCompleted"/>
        </telerik:InformationLayer.Reader>
    </telerik:InformationLayer>
</telerik:RadMap>



You can put any FrameworkElement over the map and catch events on it. You can find samples here:
