Create RasterDataset

I came across some sample of updating raster data with ArcGIS pro sdk.

ProSnippets Raster · Esri/arcgis-pro-sdk Wiki · GitHub 

But I didn't manage to find the sample or guidance of creation of raster file from scratch such as with folder connection or file geodatabase.

So Would like to know how to create raster dataset with folder connection or file geodatabase creation.

Will be appreciated if it is possible with ArcGIS runtime sdk .net. And I am not fun of calling the python geoprocessing task from the pro sdk .net as well.

Hi Than,

You can do it in ArcGIS Pro SDK .Net using geoprocessing:

var gpResult = Geoprocessing.ExecuteToolAsync("CreateRasterDataset_management", ...,

    ..., ..., ..., ...);

If you want to get help with ArcGIS Runtime sdk you are in the wrong forum. You can get more feedback in ArcGIS Runtime sdk forums.

Thank Gintautas,

Any .net sample of those Geoprocessing tool?

Is that idea to continue calling geoprocessing tool from sdk or extension code? and no roadmap to have managed code?

I believed in ArcObject we have that features in the framework.

For ArcGIS runtime sdk for .net , if there is no build in support with ArcGIS pro sdk, I am thinking of creating Raster dataset and reload it from ArcGIS pro extension.

Hi Than,

Sample code:

IReadOnlyList<string> parameters = Geoprocessing.MakeValueArray("D:\Temp\Test", // Output path
 "Result", // Raster name
 50, // Cellsize
 "8_BIT_UNSIGNED", // pixel type
 spatRef, // Spatial reference,
 1); // Bands count
IReadOnlyList<KeyValuePair<string, string>> environments = Geoprocessing.MakeEnvironmentArray(extent: pEnvelope);
var gpResult = Geoprocessing.ExecuteToolAsync("CreateRasterDataset_management", parameters, environments,
                    CancelableProgressor.None, GPExecuteToolFlags.GPThread);
More info about parameters and environment here:
And forget about ArcObjects when you are working with ArcGIS Pro.

Thank for your sample code with Geoprocessing call,

Is that the practice to call Geoprocessing tool in ArcGIS pro sdk when it is not natively supported?

And I believed it is running under different thread and how shall we troubleshoot when thing went wrong?

Like file locked by Geoprocessing thread?

Is that try cach enough?

By looking at outcome, yes it is working with these code.

Will there be implication if ArcGIS pro is upgraded to another version with few enhancement to these tool?

With SDK we will know these straight upon compilation but those Geoprocessing tool call coding how shall  we trace the update?

Or am I overly thinking and those tools will never be changed?

In ArcGIS Pro database structure editing, raster creation and analysis and much more functionality are realized using geoprocessing. For small task it is enough, but for big applications it takes a lot time to start geoprocessing. To troubleshoot geoprocessing check geoprocessing messages after executing tool:

// gp_result is the returned result object from a call to ExecuteToolAsync
// displays error messages if the tool fails, otherwise shows the default messages
Geoprocessing.ShowMessageBox(gp_result.Messages, "GP Messages",
                gp_result.IsFailed ? GPMessageBoxStyle.Error : GPMessageBoxStyle.Default);

Other questions could be answered by Esri stuff only

Thank Gintautas,

Your comments help me a lot, 

Seem Geoprocessing object is quite useful for that sdk to reuse the prebaked tool.

As per my previous comment, have concern with these and didn't dive into it.

string ExportTifFile = FileName + ".tif";
var parameters = Geoprocessing.MakeValueArray(
this.InputModel.DestinationPath, // Output path
ExportTifFile, // Raster name : make it as tif file
rasterInfo.CellSize.ToString(), // Cellsize
this.InputModel.PixelType, // pixel type
this._lastSelectedSR, // Spatial reference,
1); // Bands count

//IReadOnlyList<KeyValuePair<string, string>> environments = Geoprocessing.MakeEnvironmentArray(extent: pEnvelope);
var gpResult = Geoprocessing.ExecuteToolAsync("CreateRasterDataset_management", parameters, null,
CancelableProgressor.None, GPExecuteToolFlags.GPThread);
IGPResult ProcessingResult = gpResult.Result;
if (ProcessingResult.IsFailed)
foreach(IGPMessage message in ProcessingResult.Messages)
ConversionToolModule.Current.ModuleLogManager.LogError("Error on create raster dataset tool calling");
ConversionToolModule.Current.ModuleLogManager.LogError($"{{Error Code: {message.ErrorCode}, Text : {message.Text} }}");
Geoprocessing.ShowMessageBox(ProcessingResult.Messages, "Raster creation error", GPMessageBoxStyle.Error);
