Hey everyone, Angus Logan here. I’m the technical product manager across all of the Live Platform APIs.
Today we’re refreshing the Windows Live Tools for Microsoft Visual Studio (CTP). Over the past few months we’ve fixed lots of bugs and made sure the controls are up to date… but what I’m super excited about is the addition of the Microsoft Virtual Earth ASP.NET Control.
The Windows Live™ Tools for Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2008 are a set of control add-ins to make incorporating Windows Live services into your Web application easier with Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Web Developer 2008.
You can download the controls from here and we would love your feedback.
We now 6 controls you can easily drag into your ASP.NET web applications:
- Map Control *new!* (reference) - link coming shortly
- Contacts Control (reference)
- IDLogin Control (reference)
- IDLoginView Control (reference)
- MessengerChat Control (reference)
- SilverlightStreamingMedia Control (reference)
Check out this video on Channel 9 where Mark Brown and I demo the control
