LoadMap with Coordinates, Zoom, Style & Fixed

This is an example of a basic, simple map that can be made with Microsoft Virtual Earth/Bing Maps (version 6.2) and the LoadMap method. The coordinates to center the map have been set to the infield of Wrigley Field via the VELatLong method and the zoom level for this map has been set to 17, the style of the map has been changed from the default road r view to 'a' for aerial and the map has been locked to disallow zooming or toggling of the image by setting the value fixed to true, the default is false. map.LoadMap(new VELatLong(41.948182, -87.655527),17,'a',true); Comments are placed within the code to explain which controls are required in each map that you construct with Virtual earth.
