How to: Automatically Generate Vector Items from a Datasource

Follow the steps below to use the ListSourceDataAdapter:

  1. Create a ListSourceDataAdapter object and assign it to the VectorLayer.Data property.
  2. Specify the DataSourceAdapterBase.DataSource property.
  3. Configure the ListSourceDataAdapter.Mappings property to assign data source field values to map items.
  4. Use the ListSourceDataAdapter.ItemSettings property to specify map item settings.

<dxm:VectorLayer.Data>
    <dxm:ListSourceDataAdapter DataSource="{Binding Source={StaticResource data}, XPath=Ship}">
        <dxm:ListSourceDataAdapter.AttributeMappings>
            <dxm:MapItemAttributeMapping Name="Name" Member="Name"/>
            <dxm:MapItemAttributeMapping Name="Year" Member="Year"/>
            <dxm:MapItemAttributeMapping Name="Description" Member="Description"/>
        </dxm:ListSourceDataAdapter.AttributeMappings>
        <dxm:ListSourceDataAdapter.Mappings>
            <dxm:MapItemMappingInfo Latitude="Latitude" Longitude="Longitude"/>
        </dxm:ListSourceDataAdapter.Mappings>
        <dxm:ListSourceDataAdapter.ItemSettings>
            <dxm:MapCustomElementSettings ContentTemplate="{Binding Source={StaticResource itemTemplate}}"/>
        </dxm:ListSourceDataAdapter.ItemSettings>
    </dxm:ListSourceDataAdapter>
</dxm:VectorLayer.Data>
