Search Panel

The Search Panel is a UI element that accepts text input and displays results of a search request returned by the search service.

The Search Panel allows you to find a location on the map and see the search results for a request in the panel. To start searching, type a place name (“New York”, for example) in the panel. The result is shown in the image below.


To cancel a request, click the SearchPanel_CancelButton button in the panel on the right.

Search providers that can interact with the search panel should implement the ISearchPanelRequestSender interface.

Below are the main properties that affect element appearance and functionality.
