I am binding a list of objects to an InformationLayer and trying to display:
- some text
- some shape, tied to current location and zoom level.
XAML looks like that:
            <map:InformationLayer ItemsSource="{Binding Sales}"
                        <Canvas map:MapLayer.Location="{Binding Location}"
                            <TextBlock Text="Hi world"/> 
                                Location="{Binding Location}" 
                                StrokeThickness="2" /> 

I can see the TextBlock (at the right location) but not the MapRectangle (beside, I have to use a custom attached property to bind the location!).
It seems that MapRectangle (or any drawable) can only be added as direct childs to the InformationLayer class.
Am I correct?
And if so, I see little use in the map shape classes!

Hello Frederic,

Unfortunately map shape objects can’t be used in the data template in current version of the RadMap control. We have this feature in our plans for the future releases of our control. You can check its availability using our PITS system:
