[WinRT]Export snapshot of the Map

Question asked by Miiite on Aug 1, 2014



I am currently using the "ArcGIS Runtime for Windows Store apps (Beta 2)", version, and I want to know if it is possible using the MapView control, to generate a snapshot of what the control is currently displaying ?


In winrt 8.1, Microsoft added the support to the RenderTargetBitmap.RenderAsync() method, that allows to generate a bitmap of the visual tree of my application. But as the MapView's content is not part of the visual tree, when I call the method, the MapView control is rendered as a black rectangle.


I can't seem to find a method to export an image from the MapView control itself. Is it possible ? If it is not, is it scheduled to implement such functionnality ?


Thank you,
