Previously we have integrated Bing Maps API with Windows Phone Controls , Silverlight WebView in SharePoint 2010 running on Windows Azure. Now, integration of Bing Maps in Windows 8 Metro Style Apps with XAML is also quite easy. You need to insert WebView controls inside the XAML code. To implement this , simply create a new Metro Style apps in VS 11 in XAML C#/VB.

  • Now drag a WebView Control from Toolbox & insert proper height & width values in it on MainPage.xaml.

  • Now add the following code in MainPage.xaml.cs:

public MainPage()



Uri uri = newUri(”);




<Grid x:Name=”LayoutRoot” Background=”#FF0C0C0C”>

<WebView x:Name=”WebView1″ HorizontalAlignment=”Left” Height=”768″ Margin=”8,8,0,-8″ VerticalAlignment=”Top” Width=”1350″ ToolTipService.ToolTip=”Maps for India”/>
