Resolution

UPDATED: March 31, 2020
This was fixed in the MapXtreme .NET v.8.1 release.

A workaround for earlier versions was to set the zoom of your map to the extents of your map, for example if your map was called my_map you would need to include the below line of code at the end of your sub procedure:

my_map.Zoom = my_map.Zoom
