Currently, I have a connected web part that consumes a SharePoint list and uses the data to add locations to a Google Map control.
What I'd like to do is use the Bing Maps Silverlight control and use the same data to render pushpins on the map. I can create an unconnected web part and use the SharePoint web services to access the list data, loop through the rows and add the pins to the map. In terms of configuration this will mean the user will need to enter the list name (or Guid) in the properties of the web part, whereas before they could select from the available lists on the site, this seems like a step in the wrong direction.
So, is there a way to use the data that is provided by the connected web part and make it available to the Silverlight control?
