Remarks

Bing Search options are represented by the BingSearchOptions object that can be accessed via the BingSearchDataProvider.SearchOptions property.

Then, you can specify the search radius (BingSearchOptions.SearchRadius), the displayed number of search results (BingSearchOptions.ResultsCount) and other search parameters.

Examples

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.

The Search panel appears automatically (since the BingSearchDataProvider.ShowSearchPanel property value is true by default).
