WPF Map Control - it's FREE to all MSDN Subscribers

Thinking Out Loud
02 December 2011

We've been receiving lots of questions on our WPF Map Control and I wanted to take a minute to remind all of you that the control is free to all MSDN Subscribers.

What if I'm a DXv2 E subscriber but NOT a current MSDN subscriber?  Is DX Maps available to me?

I'd like to see this product available to DXv? E subscribers in Winforms as many of us have elected to NOT use WPF/SL.  My app is a perfect fit for a map solution.

Setting up a MSDN account is a piece of cake - dont think it means you need to pay for a subscription...Had there been additional requirements, we would have had to verify licensing which we do not.

Can you clarify "free?" This blog post, the download page, and the confirmation email do not mention anything about a time-limited evaluation. The download page, however, says it is a 30-day eval copy. Which is it?


Thank you registering for the free WPF Map Control brought to you by DevExpress and MSDN.


And remember, during your 30-day evaluation, you are entitled to FREE tech support from DevExpress.

What about a DXMap control for VCL?

You don't need an MSDN account, you just have to go to http://msdn.microsoft.com and make sure your region is set as "United States (English)" (it doesn't show up if you are Australian).

At the bottom of the page and on the right will be a bunch of third party advertising ... ignore that.

Right at the top, under the menu, is the core Microsoft marketing message of the day.

Today it is "Save up to 35% on MSDN Subscriptions".  After about 20 seconds it was replaced by the next most important message from MSDN ... "Unwrap your Map" from Developer Express.  About 20 more seconds that is replaced by some message about programming for Windows Phone, and then something else and then it comes back to the first message.

Is the source for the control available for subscribers? I've written my own tilesource and provider to work with in house ESRI servers, or the ARCGisOnline, and I've figured work arounds for everything but two protected internal items.  If I had the source I could recompile and include my provider for internal use, without would be disapointing, what would of been exceptional is those interfaces being exposed to facilitate custom providers like WMS, google, yahoo, mapquest, ESRI, I can probably build a total hack inheriting from openstreetmap and overriding just the uri builder but thats cheesy.

Where is this? I'm not seeing it on MSDN any more. Why not provide a direct link?
