Thanks a lot for the control.
I am new to MS Surface. I added the namespace and the Surface Control to the XAML of a scatter view project. I added pictures to the scatetr view and the Surface Control. When I run it I get the images (which I can move around using multitouch) and Virtual
Earth in a window. I can not move the map using multitouch though. Comments please. Also VE does not zoom in or out. Thanks a lot.
The reason the map doesn't move like the other pictures in the ScatterView is because the map captures your contacts, preventing the ScatterView from seeing the events. Think about how a user would use it. Should they touch the map and
move their finger to pan the map, or should the map never pan and moving the finger causes the map to move within the Scatterview? Since panning is a core feature of the map, then you cannot directly move it in a ScatterView.
Instead, consider something like this: (Pseudo-code, untested in a compiler)
<TextBlock Text="Map" />
This will put the map inside of some other graphical elements and give you a "handle" to move the map around in the ScatterView. Users can touch the map to pan, or touch the text label or margins to move the whole setup around.
