Is there a way to initialize a map to a specific position without having to see the map rapidly pan and zoom?
I have a set of items in a VisualizationLayer and I would like to display those items on the map without scrolling and zooming. The layer is bound to a list in the xaml.
Currently, I set the bounds by calling GetBestView() on the VisualizationLayer to get the precise boundaries. This works, but the map starts at coordinates 0,0 and then scrolls and zooms. It does this for several seconds - the appearance is very annoying to the user.
I would like to be able to set the bounds directly and have the map go straight to the area without scrolling and zooming. It may be that I am not setting the bounds at the appropriate time?
Is this even possible?
