Name Description
Method CalculateVisibleBounds Calculates the visible bounds by applying the zoom or scale parameter to MapBounds (used when snapshot is false).
Method DelayEvents Used to batch operations together to minimize notifications.
Read-only property Description Description reflecting the current settings of the MapInset.
Method Draw Draws the map surround into the specified display bounds.
Method FitToBounds Adjusts the map surround to fit the bounds. The changed argument indicates whether the size of the map surround was changed.
