Virtual Earth API Update
As I promised at my SharePoint Saturday Presentation in Boston, I’ve updated my previous example integrating SharePoint with the Virtual Earth SDK. The original example was based on the SharePoint Designer Team Blog post, How to Integrate Virtual Earth Maps with a SharePoint List, from almost 2 years ago.
Greg Chan’s original post is still great, and I recommend you give a read to see how he did the magic. However, there is at least one update needed to make his post work with the latest version of the Virtual Earth API. The FindLocation method in the API appears to have been replaced with a method named just Find. And the callback function appears to take a lot more arguments than he used.
Use this code to replace the stylesheet from the SharePoint Designer Team Blog post. Right click save, MyLiveMaps.xsl
