hey guys,

Haven't seen any silverlight specific branches or anything, and when I try to convert the existing solution to a silverlight class library there is a heap of stuff that isn't supported :(


I see mapsui has a silverlight library but it doesn't include the providers i need (mapinfo), is there any progress in a silverlight friendly version?

The easier way I know is to extend the sharpmap verison contained inside mapsui ( and add the mapinfo provider taken from trunk version of sharpmap.

Take a look that if you want to use OgrProvider (or any provider that depends of native libraries or external libraries that are not provided for silverlight) you can't do it (as far as I know).

I suggest you to simply publish a WMS server (using sharpmap "standard" and wms.ashx handler) and then show this data source inside silverlight (via mapsui).
