How to: Format Coordinates Displayed in the Navigation Panel

Show Me

A complete sample project is available in the DevExpress Code Examples database at http://www.devexpress.com/example=E5015.

This example demonstrates how to change the text of map point coordinates displayed in the navigation panel using latitude and longitude format patterns.

To do this, specify a string that will represent the pattern displayed within a coordinate label in the map navigation panel using NavigationPanelOptions.XCoordinatePattern and NavigationPanelOptions.YCoordinatePattern properties.

In this example, you can format the values of map point coordinates using a predefined list of patterns from the combo box. In the combo box, you can also specify a custom pattern using standard specifiers together with placeholders. For example: "{CP}{D}°{M}'{S:2}'' ", where CP – is a cardinal point; D – is a degree; M - is a minute; S – is a second. Note that the precision specifier ("2") indicates the desired number of decimal places.
