can somebody, plese, explain me, how to render on a simple WPF plane without using MapViewControl.
What I need is very simple:
1. Load the map layers
2. Create a new or modify the existing Visual and create a plane i.e. by using VisualBrush from this visual
3. Show a new or modified Visual with a map in the scene.

My problem is that neither MapViewControl not derived from a Visual nor I can get some Visual properties from in code created MapViewControl .
It is possible to do this thing without WPF code modifikation.
Iy it is, it would be very nice if I can get some example code.

Many thanks.
