A MapBillboard is very similar to a MapIcon. Use a MapIcon to emphasize a location on a map. Because images used to mark locations are typically small, they can remain the same size as users zoom in and out on a map.

Use a MapBillboard to show things like large images that relate to map locations. As users zoom out, the image will shrink proportionally in size to enable the user to view more of the map.


MapBillboard(MapCamera) MapBillboard(MapCamera) MapBillboard(MapCamera) MapBillboard(MapCamera)

Initializes a new instance of the MapBillboard class.


CollisionBehaviorDesired CollisionBehaviorDesired CollisionBehaviorDesired CollisionBehaviorDesired

Gets or sets the behavior of a MapBillboard when it collides with other map features due to zoom level.

CollisionBehaviorDesiredProperty CollisionBehaviorDesiredProperty CollisionBehaviorDesiredProperty CollisionBehaviorDesiredProperty

Identifies the CollisionBehaviorDesired dependency property.

Dispatcher Dispatcher Dispatcher Dispatcher

Gets the CoreDispatcher that this object is associated with. The CoreDispatcher represents a facility that can access the DependencyObject on the UI thread even if the code is initiated by a non-UI thread.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
Image Image Image Image

Gets or sets the image for the MapBillboard. Provide an optional custom image to replace the default point of interest (POI) image.

IsEnabled IsEnabled IsEnabled IsEnabled

Indicates whether users can interact with the MapElement.

(Inherited from MapElement)
IsEnabledProperty IsEnabledProperty IsEnabledProperty IsEnabledProperty

Identifies the IsEnabled dependency property.

(Inherited from MapElement)
Location Location Location Location

Gets or sets the geographic location of the MapBillboard on the MapControl. The location is the geographic location on the MapControl at which the NormalizedAnchorPoint of the MapBillboard is positioned.

LocationProperty LocationProperty LocationProperty LocationProperty

Identifies the Location dependency property.

MapStyleSheetEntry MapStyleSheetEntry MapStyleSheetEntry MapStyleSheetEntry

Gets or sets the name of an entry in the map's style sheet that you'd like to apply to this MapElement.

(Inherited from MapElement)
MapStyleSheetEntryProperty MapStyleSheetEntryProperty MapStyleSheetEntryProperty MapStyleSheetEntryProperty

Identifies for the MapStyleSheetEntry dependency property.

(Inherited from MapElement)
MapStyleSheetEntryState MapStyleSheetEntryState MapStyleSheetEntryState MapStyleSheetEntryState

Gets or sets the name of the state of this MapElement. If the style sheet defines a style for that state, that style is applied to this element. Values defined in the style sheet for the state override values defined in the MapStyleSheetEntry.

(Inherited from MapElement)
MapStyleSheetEntryStateProperty MapStyleSheetEntryStateProperty MapStyleSheetEntryStateProperty MapStyleSheetEntryStateProperty

Identifies for the MapStyleSheetEntryState dependency property.

(Inherited from MapElement)
MapTabIndex MapTabIndex MapTabIndex MapTabIndex

Gets or sets a value that determines the order in which elements of the MapControl receive focus when the user navigates through those elements by pressing the Tab key.

(Inherited from MapElement)
MapTabIndexProperty MapTabIndexProperty MapTabIndexProperty MapTabIndexProperty

Identifies the MapTabIndex dependency property.

(Inherited from MapElement)
NormalizedAnchorPoint NormalizedAnchorPoint NormalizedAnchorPoint NormalizedAnchorPoint

Gets or sets the anchor point of the MapBillboard. The anchor point is the point on the MapBillboard that is positioned at the point on the MapControl specified by the Location property.

NormalizedAnchorPointProperty NormalizedAnchorPointProperty NormalizedAnchorPointProperty NormalizedAnchorPointProperty

Identifies the NormalizedAnchorPoint dependency property.

ReferenceCamera ReferenceCamera ReferenceCamera ReferenceCamera

Gets the MapCamera settings that define the position and orientation where the image appears at a 1x scale.

Tag Tag Tag Tag

Gets or sets an arbitrary object value that can be used to store custom information about this object.

(Inherited from MapElement)
TagProperty TagProperty TagProperty TagProperty

Identifies the Tag dependency property.

(Inherited from MapElement)
Visible Visible Visible Visible

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the MapElement is visible on the MapControl.

(Inherited from MapElement)
VisibleProperty VisibleProperty VisibleProperty VisibleProperty

Identifies the Visible dependency property.

(Inherited from MapElement)
ZIndex ZIndex ZIndex ZIndex

Gets or sets the z-index of the MapElement. A MapElement with a higher z-index is displayed on top of a MapElement with a lower z-index.

(Inherited from MapElement)
ZIndexProperty ZIndexProperty ZIndexProperty ZIndexProperty

Identifies the ZIndex dependency property.

(Inherited from MapElement)


ClearValue(DependencyProperty) ClearValue(DependencyProperty) ClearValue(DependencyProperty) ClearValue(DependencyProperty)

Clears the local value of a dependency property.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
GetAnimationBaseValue(DependencyProperty) GetAnimationBaseValue(DependencyProperty) GetAnimationBaseValue(DependencyProperty) GetAnimationBaseValue(DependencyProperty)

Returns any base value established for a dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
GetValue(DependencyProperty) GetValue(DependencyProperty) GetValue(DependencyProperty) GetValue(DependencyProperty)

Returns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
ReadLocalValue(DependencyProperty) ReadLocalValue(DependencyProperty) ReadLocalValue(DependencyProperty) ReadLocalValue(DependencyProperty)

Returns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
RegisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,DependencyPropertyChangedCallback) RegisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,DependencyPropertyChangedCallback) RegisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,DependencyPropertyChangedCallback) RegisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,DependencyPropertyChangedCallback)

Registers a notification function for listening to changes to a specific DependencyProperty on this DependencyObject instance.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
SetValue(DependencyProperty,Object) SetValue(DependencyProperty,Object) SetValue(DependencyProperty,Object) SetValue(DependencyProperty,Object)

Sets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
UnregisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,Int64) UnregisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,Int64) UnregisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,Int64) UnregisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,Int64)

Cancels a change notification that was previously registered by calling RegisterPropertyChangedCallback.
