    when trying to add a shapefile layer I keep getting not found errors.  what should the uri look like and where do the shapefiles go?

    do the go in the web harness part of the project or the xaml part? and the URI what should that be?

        <telerik:MapShapeReader DataSource="PhysicalLocations;/ClientBin/cb_2013_us_state_500k.dbf"

    Hi Wyatt,

    You can include the shape-file (.shp and .dbf) to the Silverlight project as Resources. In this case you should set the Uri format like to the following:
    /Assembly Name;component/Path/File Name.

    Or can include the shape-file to the web project as Content. In a case, when the shape-file is placed on the web site then you can use the the following Uri format:
    Path/File Name.

    is there some additional setting?  I have the files in a folder in the web project under ClientBin/cb_2013_us_state_500k.dbf and ClientBin/cb_2013_us_state_500k.shp and have tried the following iterations. all come back as not found? I was able to do it successfully in a wpf project, just not a sliverlight website.

    I also have Copy to output directory set to copy always
