Is there a "SnapToLevels" property in ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET?

Hi everyone.

In ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF, I can set "SnapToLevels" as "True", so when I zoom the map, it will snap to scale levels if the map contains cached layers.

However, I can't find anything like "SnapToLevels" in ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET. Is there a property like that?

If so, will it work on touch device such as Surface Pro 3?  ("SnapToLevels" in ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF doesn't work when pinching with fingers.)

Was anyone ever able to find an answer to this question?

Unfortunately this isn't currently available in the .NET API but it's on the roadmap for the next major release.

Hello all

I am about to implement this functionality and have a question or two.

Do either of the ExtentChange-type events (ExtentChanged or NavigationCompleted) fire Before the map renders at this updated extent?  If so, should I be getting the proposed extent from the MapView.Extent value itself (as opposed to some attribute of the event object as I do with the WPF Runtime)?

I would like to intercept and scale to one of my Lods, rendering only once.

If not, then the best alternative I see is to intercept before making any of the calls that may change the map's scale (zoom level) and force it to initially go where I think it should.  I figure that might also require me to override the zoom wheel implementation.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
