public class GeoPointContainer : BaseObject
{
    public GeoPointContainer(Session session) : base(session) { }
 
    public override void AfterConstruction()
    {
        base.AfterConstruction();
        this.Point = new GeoPoint();
        this.DemoZoomPoint = new GeoPoint();
        this.DemoMapTypeIdPoint = new GeoPoint();
    }
 
    public String Name { get; set; }
 
    [ValueConverter(typeof (GeoPointConverter))]
    public GeoPoint Point { get; set; }
 
    [ValueConverter(typeof(GeoPointConverter))]
    public GeoPoint DemoZoomPoint { get; set; }
 
    [ValueConverter(typeof (GeoPointConverter))]
    public GeoPoint DemoMapTypeIdPoint { get; set; }
}

GeoPoint type properties are decorated with ValueConverter attribute. Set value of this attribute to GeoPointConverter.

The code behind demonstrates GeoPointConverter class:

public class GeoPointConverter : ValueConverter
{
    public override object ConvertFromStorageType(object value)
    {
        return GeoPoint.Parse(value);
    }
 
    public override object ConvertToStorageType(object value)
    {
        return value.ToString();
    }
 
    public override Type StorageType
    {
        get { return typeof(String); }
    }
}

Then add controller GoogleMapsViewController that attaches javascript to the Web application. The code of this controller is demonstrated behind.
