How to: Connect a Map Control to the OpenStreetMap Search Service

This example demonstrates how to add an image layer displaying map tiles from the OSM service and an information layer that searches for a place on the map using the OSM search service. It uses the following classes:

Class Description
ImageLayer Displays map images obtained from map image data providers.
OpenStreetMapDataProvider The class that loads map images from a web resource that provides data in the OpenStreetMap format.
InformationLayer A layer that is used to display additional information above the map.
OsmSearchDataProvider Provides the search options using the Open Street Map service.
private void OnFormLoad(object sender, EventArgs e) {
    mapControl.Layers.AddRange(new LayerBase[] {
        new ImageLayer {
            DataProvider = new OpenStreetMapDataProvider {
                TileUriTemplate = "YOUR_WEB_SERVICE.com/{1}/{2}/{3}"
            }
        },
        new InformationLayer {
            DataProvider = new OsmSearchDataProvider { }
        }
    });
}
