Map HtmlHelper Overview

The Telerik UI Map HtmlHelper for ASP.NET Core is a server-side wrapper for the Kendo UI Map widget.

The Map displays geospatial information organized in layers and is supported for both desktop and mobile devices. It also provides tile layers, shape (vector) layers, and marker layers.

Initializing the Map

The following example demonstrates how to define the Map by using the Map HtmlHelper.

    @(Html.Kendo().Map()
        .Name("map")
        .Center(35.268107, -95.744821)
        .Zoom(2)
        .Layers(layers =>
        {
            layers.Add()
                .Type(MapLayerType.Tile)
                .UrlTemplate("http://#= subdomain #.tile.openstreetmap.org/#= zoom #/#= x #/#= y #.png")
                .Subdomains("a", "b", "c")
                .Attribution("&copy; <a href='http://osm.org/copyright'>OpenStreetMap contributors</a>");
        })
        .Markers(markers =>
        {
            markers.Add()
                .Location(30.268107, -97.744821)
                .Shape(MapMarkersShape.PinTarget)
                .Tooltip(tooltip => tooltip.Content("Austin, TX"));
        })
    )
    public partial class MapController : BaseController
    {
        [Demo]
        public IActionResult Index()
        {
            return View();
        }
    }

Basic Configuration

The following example demonstrates the basic configuration for the Map HtmlHelper.

    <input id="zoomLevel"/>
    <button id="zoom" class="k-button">zoom()</button>

    @(Html.Kendo().Map()
        .Name("map")
        .Center(30.268107, -97.744821)
        .Zoom(3)
        .Layers(layers =>
        {
            layers.Add()
                .Type(MapLayerType.Tile)
                .UrlTemplate("http://tile2.opencyclemap.org/transport/#= zoom #/#= x #/#= y #.png")
                .Subdomains("a", "b", "c")
                .Attribution("&copy; <a href='http://osm.org/copyright'>OpenStreetMap contributors</a>." +
                            "Tiles courtesy of <a href='http://www.opencyclemap.org/'>Andy Allan</a>");
        })
    )

    <script>
        $("#zoom").click(function (e) {
                var map = $("#map").data("kendoMap")
                map.zoom(
                    parseInt($("#zoomLevel").val(), 10)
                );
            });
    </script>
