Hi!

I have got a problem with adding a BingMapsLayer to my MapView! I have studied the documentation of the api and
i looked at the sample application. I also registered a bing maps key at the bingmapsportal for mobil use.

But I can not run the sample application and my application because there is always the same error:

[ATTACH=CONFIG]11119[/ATTACH]

I don't know how to set these usercredentials or how to tell bingmaps the right settings!
Can anyone help me ?

Thanks for your answers!

I got it working now! 🙂

My failure was to think that as it is written in the
android api for arcgis the brackets have to be around the bingkey:
FROM THE DOCUMENTATION:

The following are examples of how you can work with the BingMapsLayer class. The code will add a map with a Bing Maps Layer of Aerial style.
Java usage:
MapView mv = new MapView(this);
mv.addLayer(new BingMapsLayer(
"[your Bing Maps key]", MapStyle.Aerial));
setContentView(mv);

To initialize a Bing map in a WebMap please see the class description of the MapView.

After the initialization of the bingmapslayer i had to call .getBingLogo();
because if I don't do that i get a android strict mode error because getBingLogo()
is called in the ui-thread.

Thanks for the help!

I am using Android Fragments:

public class Map extends Fragment {
...

@Override
public void onActivityCreated(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
  super.onActivityCreated(savedInstanceState);
  MapView _map = (MapView)getActivity().findViewById(R.id.map);
                _map.addLayer(new BingMapsLayer("BingMapsKey", MapStyle.Road));
}


...
}

This is my class very shortened!
If I do it this way all my other layers are working without any problems!

Are you really using the string "BingMapsKey"? Or did you just replace your real key since you don't want to publish it in the forum?

I just wanted to be sure 🙂

Try your app with this key (I use it, and I don't have any problems with Bing maps):

Does the AddBingMap sample work for you with your key, respectively with this key?

Hi, could you post your code please! I'm trying to use a bing map but can't do it. I'm using 4.0.3 API and this is what I've done:
BingMapsLayer lyr = new BingMapsLayer("AqTGBsziZHIJYYxgivLBf0hVdrAk9mWO5cQcb8Yux8sW5M8c8opEC2lZqKR1ZZXf", MapStyle.AerialWithLabels);
  map.addLayer(lyr);

Was the issue exclusive to the implicit brackets from the JavaDoc class description?  We can remove them in the next release.  Let me know if there is/was an issue beyond including the brackets with your Bing Maps Key.
