Leaflet Control Bing Geocoder

What is it ?

A simple geocoder that uses Bing to locate places.

How to use it ?

var cloudmadeAttribution = 'Map data © 2011 OpenStreetMap contributors, Imagery © 2011 CloudMade',
    cloudmade = new L.TileLayer('http://{s}.tile.cloudmade.com/BC9A493B41014CAABB98F0471D759707/997/256/{z}/{x}/{y}.png', {attribution: cloudmadeAttribution});

var map = new L.Map('map').addLayer(cloudmade).setView(new L.LatLng(48.5, 2.5), 15);

var bingGeocoder = new L.Control.BingGeocoder('your-api-key');


What are the options ?

You can specify an options object as a second argument of L.Control.BingGeocoder.

var options = {
    collapsed: true, /* Whether its collapsed or not */
    position: 'topright', /* The position of the control */
    text: 'Locate', /* The text of the submit button */
    callback: function (results) {
        var bbox = results.resourceSets[0].resources[0].bbox,
            first = new L.LatLng(bbox[0], bbox[1]),
            second = new L.LatLng(bbox[2], bbox[3]),
            bounds = new L.LatLngBounds([first, second]);
