VEMap.SetMapView 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.

Sets the map view to include all of the points, lines, or polygons specified in the provided array, or to the view defined by a VEMapViewSpecification Class object.


VEMap.SetMapView(object);

Parameters

Parameter Description

object

In 2D mode, an array of VELatLong Class points or a VELatLongRectangle Class object. In 3D mode, can also be a VEMapViewSpecification Class object. This object defines the location, altitude, pitch, and heading to use for the map view.

The method is useful when you want a map to cover a known collection of points, but you are not sure what the center point is, or what zoom level is required to fit the entire region in your current map control.
