    While testing Radcontrol WPF Q2 2011 beta i realized that panning and zooming in WPF Map control was not as smooth as in Silveright giving impression of slowness.
    It seems when zooming, the loading tiles threads lock for a few milli seconds the panning functions.

    Observation is based on :
    http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/beta and http://demos.telerik.com/wpf/beta

    I dont know if its only relative to beta (so sorry if its wrong forum)

    Hi Alfred Romer,

    There is a big difference between the Silverlight and the WPF version of RadMap. The Silverlight version is based on the standard Silverlight MultiScaleImage control. Unfortunately, there is no such control in WPF, so we have created our own implementation of the MultiScaleImage. All panning and zooming features which are available in Silverlight MultiScaleImage control are simulated in WPF using the available animation features.

    Kind regards,
