VEMap.GetVersion Method

You are not viewing the latest version of the AJAX control. Bing Maps AJAX V7 is the recommended JavaScript control for Bing Maps. If you need this documentation, it is available in as a CHM or PDF download.

You use the GetVersion method with the VEMap object itself, not an instance of the object. This is because every instance of the VEMap object on a page will be the same version.
