WP-render vector layer issue

hi paul.

Mapsui is a great proj. Now i'm trying to test WP map. I want to overlay a linestring layer on the base layer. but it cannot render on canvas. what is the problem of the code below.

public MainPage()
            //this.map.Map.Layers.Add(new TileLayer(new OsmTileSource()));
            this.map.Map.Layers.Add(new TileLayer(new GoogleTileSource(GoogleMapType.GoogleMap)));

            LineString line = new LineString();
            line.Vertices.Add(new SharpMap.Geometries.Point(-20037508.342789, -20037508.342789));
            line.Vertices.Add(new SharpMap.Geometries.Point(20037508.342789, 20037508.342789));

            Layer lay = new Layer("LineString");
            SharpMap.Data.Features features = new SharpMap.Data.Features();
            SharpMap.Data.IFeature feature = features.New();
            feature.Geometry = line;
            lay.DataSource = new SharpMap.Data.Providers.MemoryProvider(features);
            SharpMap.Styles.Color color = new SharpMap.Styles.Color();
            color.R = 129;
            color.G = 2;
            color.B = 134;
            lay.Style.Line.Color = color;
            lay.Style.Line.Width = 5;
            //SharpMap.Styles.Brush brush = new SharpMap.Styles.Brush();
            //brush.Fill = color;
            //lay.Style.Fill = brush;

            App.Current.Host.Content.Resized += Content_Resized;

And, the MapControl in Mapsui.Windows does not realize map click event right ? In WinForm of SharpMapUI, the MapControl has Query, Pan, Zoom function etc.

hi cdqrain,

thanks for you complete example. It made it easy to find the problem. The Alpha value of the color had 0 as default value so was invisible. I just committed a fix that initializes it to 255.

With Map Click you mean Query, or just any map manipulation? Pan and Zoom (with mouse wheel) should work in WinForms and WPF. I have not looked at Query after the port from SharpMap. 

About the WP project. I did just the minimal thing to get it to compile, there could be all kinds of problems with it. So if you would like to use it for a project you should be confident you can fix such problems yourself.

thanks paul.

yes, map click to get lonlat to do query or to make a marker. In your MapControl the mousedown event is just to pan the map.

I should test most of the function before use it for a project. such as, overlay vector layer, marker layer, click the marker to popup infowindow. 

if possible, draw geometry on the map.

but i am not familar with SL and WP, so, i should stand on your shoulder. :-)
