WinForms and WPF Maps - Map Rulers, Rotation (v20.2)

In this post, I’ll describe a couple of features we expect to release in our v20.2 release cycle – features that are currently available in the DevExpress Map Control (WinForms and WPF) Early Access Preview (EAP) build.

All active Universal or DXperience subscribers can download this build today via the DevExpress Client Center.

Map Rulers 

We extended the interactive capabilities of our DevExpress Map Control by introducing a new Measurement Toolbar. This toolbar will help end users to measure geometrical and geographical objects using the appropriate buttons: Add Distance Ruler and Add Area Ruler

You can also use our Measurements class API to create and update rulers and specify measurement units in code. 

Demo: Map Editor (WinForms) | Map Editor (WPF) 

Documentation: Measurements class (WinForms) 

Map Rotation (WPF) 

Your end-users can now rotate WPF maps as needed. Simply set the required rotation angle using the MapControl.Angle property or by calling the MapControl.RotateAt method. 

Demo: Navigator

For some reason, demo links point to a webpage saying "DxDemo.com is for sale". What's wrong?

Measuring tools sound great.

+1 for WinForms map rotation.

Any news on the new map tile provider to enable MBtiles etc to be zoomed all the way in?

@Basit Sarguroh:

You can use our DevExtreme Map widget to display maps within ASP.NET apps.

 

@Placebo:

Please make sure that both the EAP build and Demo Center v20.2 are installed.

 

@Mahmoud EL-Baz:

We are planning to include rotation support for our WinForms Map Control in the next release.

 

@Mark Bissett 1:

Thanks for sharing your feedback with us. We're working on vector tile enhancements.

Regarding map rotation, we expect to support this in the next release.

Being able to rotate the map would be a great feature if added to Winforms!
