If you want the full functionality of the Bing Maps AJAX Control 6.3, then you need to use JavaScript to load the map control into your Web page. This is described in the Displaying a Map Using JavaScript topic.

You can also use the core version of the map control. See Using the Core Map Control.

Add a Simple Map

To embed a map into your Web page, add an iframe tag to your Web page and set the src parameter to the embedded map URL. The following code adds a simple Road map to a Web page.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" 
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html>
   <head>
      <title>Embedded Map</title>
      <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
   </head>
   <body style="font-family:Arial">
      <p>A simple embedded map.</p>
      <iframe width="400" height="300" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0"
         src="http://dev.virtualearth.net/embeddedMap/v1/ajax/road"/>
   </body>
</html>

Use Embedded Map Features

You can customize your embedded map by adding parameters to the map URL. The following code sets the map style to Aerial and the zoom level to 10, then centers the map and adds a pushpin to the center.
