I'm upgrading wpf runtime 10.2.5 to .net 100.7 

in 10.2.5 i have used control template to add properties/triggers/behaviors into symbols (entities on map)

is there a way i can reuse the control templates in 100.7 sdk?

for example: Graphic icon were defined by BitMap + ControlTemplate

Due to the huge performance hit those symbols had, they weren't shareable within the runtime platform and the entire engine is completely DirectX based with no (slow) XAML, this feature did not get added to the 100.x release.

You can however still generate symbols based on bitmaps (use PictureMarkerSymbol)

Got it, so what would be the correct way in 100.x doing overlay icons for example i have device icon on the map and i set overlay icon if its Online/Offline?

also with the control template i used to do some trigger animations in xaml, is there a way to achieve this with 100.x?
