hi,
i applied the buffer sample http://help.arcgis.com/en/webapi/silverlight/samples/start.htm#BufferQuery.
but i want to define the buffer distance before click in the map. i created a textbox where i can enter the distance but in the code behind..it give me an error :
my code
  var distancebuffer = txtbuffer.Text;
           
            bufferParams.Distances.Add(distancebuffer);

the error :
- Error : Argument 1: cannot convert from 'string' to 'double'
- Error : The best overloaded method match for 'System.Collections.Generic.List<double>.Add(double)' has some invalid arguments

txtBuffer.Text is a string you need to pass a double to the method, that is why the error says you are passing a string where a double is required.




  double distancebuffer = double.Parse(txtbuffer.Text);         
  bufferParams.Distances.Add(distancebuffer);



(perhaps at some point you could thank someone on this forum who offers you help)
