Map Picture Box Control

VertiGIS Studio Reporting provides a variety of controls related specifically to the map. These controls appear if a user is licensed for both VertiGIS Studio Reporting and VertiGIS Studio Printing.


The Map Picture Box control includes the map from the user's session in the report output. The user specifies the area to show and the scale to use in the user's session. The output shows the visible layers and any markup and selections that the user has made.

Within Report Designer, there is no user session with a map, so the control on the design surface shows a placeholder map. The Preview uses a sample map service.

To use a Map Picture Box control in a report template, add the control to the layout. No further configuration is required. When the report is generated using a workflow, the map, the map's state, and the user's configuration are retrieved from the host application to create the map image.

The Map Picture Box control is only populated when the report is run using VertiGIS Studio Workflow. For more information on how to run a report using VertiGIS Studio Workflow, see Run Reports from VertiGIS Studio Workflows
