While using direction widget with JS API 3.14, we have observed that, The direction widget(“esri/dijit/direction”)  is not honoring “directionLengthUnits” property and always displays route length unit in “miles”.

However in JS API 3.13,  It honors the configured value for “directionLengthUnits” property to display the route length unit.

Attached is the code samples with the direction widget implementation using JS API 3.13 and 3.14.

 var directions = new Directions({
          map: map,
          directionsLengthUnits: esriUnits.METERS
        },"dir");
        directions.startup();

Seems to be an bug with 3.14 API, please suggest.

Sumit,

  The supported units are only miles or kilometers.

Length units. Supported units are miles and kilometers. Use the constant units or their string equivalents ("esriKilometers" | "esriMiles").

Known values: esriUnits.KILOMETERS | esriUnits.MILES

Check out the documentation page that states the above.

Thanks Robert Scheitlin, GISP

we missed that, however we tried using esriUnits.KILOMETERS but still the widget is showing result only in miles.

Sumit,

   You are correct I am finding the same the directionsLengthUnits in the constructor is being ignored in 3.14. You will need to submit this bug to esri tech support.
