    I try to achive the following: I want to display tours on a map. A tour consists of multiple stations which are locations. I do not want to draw a concrete route, but some kind of a sketch route. That means that all the stations are connected with straight lines. So far, this is no problem, I can use the MapPolyline for this. I want the stations itself to be displayed as filled circles. I want to be able to visualize multiple tours in the same map. (See attached picture)

    I am working with MVVM apporoach, so I want to have a single Control, lets call it MapTour which I can use like that:

    <telerik:RadMap x:Name="radMap"
        <telerik:InformationLayer x:Name="TourLayer" ItemsSource="{Binding Tours}" >
                <my:MapTour Stations="{Binding Stations}" />

    In the ViewModel I have a property Tours as an ObservableCollection<TourViewModel>. TourViewModel is defined as follows:

    public class TourViewModel : INotifyPropertyChanged
          private String m_TourName;
          private ObservableCollection<LISCoordinate> m_Stations;
          public ourViewModel()
            TourName = "Empty";
            Stations = new ObservableCollection<Location>();
         public String TourName
            get { return m_TourName; }
            set { m_TourName = value; OnPropertyChanged("TourName"); }
          public ObservableCollection<Location> Stations
            get { return m_Stations; }
            set { m_Stations = value; OnPropertyChanged("Stations"); }
          // INotifyPropertyChanged implementation omitted.

    But I can not figure out how to write the MapRoute control. I know that I can add two InformationLayers for one rout, one for the polyline and the other for the points. But how can I encapsulate this into a control? What base class do I have to use? I can not nest InformationLayers, if I could I would derive from this class and add my visuals in code. But nesting Information layers does not seem to work. 

    What do I have to fill in for the data template to achive the described behaviour?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Tobias Richling,

    I would recommend that you use two information layers which are bound to two collections. You can create collection of points of all tours using the CollectionChanged event.
    I have attached a sample solution. I hope it helps.

    Hi Andrey Murzov,

    thanks for the sample. I think I can solve this that way!
