Hi Guys, I am a newbie to arcGIS so please excuse my mistakes.
I am fetching lat/longs from database using .Net and returning JSON array of lat/longs along with other data. I am able to draw points and polyline on map.

My requirement is to draw the line in consideration with
road / street network [Ex: as Route is displayed on street] instead of being diagonal it should follow the street.

Many Thanks in advance !!!! 😊

Initial code snippet for reference.

Hi @Mohammedaz 
to be able to construct a line feature that exactly follows the street, you will need to get your hands on the streets data, query the geometry, and use the geometry values to build your graphics/features.
The streets that you can see on the map are from a basemap, which is just an image, the basemap won't provide you with a vector layer for streets.

Hey Hi @IhabHassan 
Thanks a ton for looking into my query. I understand your point, could you please give me some pointers / links for integrating streets data and geometry.  I have .Net development experience and totally newbie to arcGIS development.
