Do you have an example similar to your Server-Side Data Binding example that, instead of creating markers, creates the shapes (similar to the earthquake example) from the Server Side?

I have all my geo locations and condition data stored in SQL and need to dynamically build a layer to show the shapes, sized and colored, based on the condition data queried from SQL.

any direction would be appreciated.

Hi Mark,

With the current implementation of RadMap, only Markers could be created from the code-behind and Shapes are loaded only from GeoJSON data.

You could create a Web Service for returning the data as a GeoJSON format. An easy for integration approach would be the use of RadClientDataSource control.

Additionally, there is another approach that could be from the code-behind, but it will require to format a string with the shapes data in JSON format, save that string to a HiddenField control and on client-side, use the JSON.parse(string) method for creating a JSON object, which could be set as a data source for a Shape layer.

<script type="text/javascript">
    function OnInitialize(sender, args) {
        var originalOptions = args.get_options();
        var geoJSON = document.getElementById("<%=HiddenGeoJSON.ClientID%>").value;
        originalOptions.layers[0].dataSource = { data: JSON.parse(geoJSON) };
<asp:HiddenField runat="server" ID="HiddenGeoJSON" />
<telerik:RadMap runat="server" ID="RadMap1" Zoom="2" Width="500" Height="200">
    <ClientEvents OnInitialize="OnInitialize" />
    <CenterSettings Latitude="30" Longitude="10" />
                <FillSettings Color="green" />
                <StrokeSettings Color="black" Width="2" />
        <telerik:MapLayer Type="Shape">

And the code-behind:

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    HiddenGeoJSON.Value = "[{\"type\": \"Polygon\",\"coordinates\": [[[30, 10], [40, 40], [20, 40], [10, 20], [30, 10]]]}]";
