To get access to the Bing Search service, you should specify the bing key using the BingMapDataProviderBase.BingKey property.

To learn how it can be done, see the How to: Get a Bing Maps Key topic.

To get access to the search options of the Bing Search Data provider, use the BingSearchDataProvider.SearchOptions property.

If you wish to see the search results in a search panel, use the BingSearchDataProvider.ShowSearchPanel property.


This example demonstrates how to allow users to search for a specific place on a map using the Search panel.

To enable searching in the map control, do the following.
