After more time that I had originally thought here's my second VE demo:
This demo demonstrates how to leverage the MapPoint Web Service (MWS) in order to do driving directions using the current version of VE. The upcoming version of VE will have driving directions built in but meanwhile you can use this application to get routes using the current version.
The demo should be pretty straight-forward to use, just enter an origin and destination address in the form fields and click the Get Directions button. A list of all the steps will appear below the addresses form. The map will also be updated with an icon representing each step of the directions. Hovering the mouse on one of the icons will show the text for the step as well as display the corresponding maneuver map, there are also back and forth links to get to the next or previous step. In the results table clicking the step number will pan to the corresponding icon on the map and display the corresponding maneuver info.
As for my other demo any feedback is welcomed and should be posted as comments to this blog entry.
