Overlay a layout container over the map

Apr 15, 2011 at 9:43 PM

I have a simple Dockpanel which contains 5 checkboxes. I want ot overlay this dockpanel over the map in such a way that it will persist at its location at the bottom of the screen while users are navigating the map. The idea is similar to a HUD (Heads Up Display) in a flight simulator.

Simple layout question.


    <ve:VEMap />

    <DockPanel> ... </DockPanel>


Note that if the only thing in your DockPanel is a panel with the checkboxes, then you also need to put an empty <Grid /> in the DockPanel to fill up the rest of the space. Alternately, don't use a DockPanel and just do VerticalAlignment="Bottom" on the checkbox panel.
