We are pleased to announce the 100.11 release of ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET. This release includes significant new features, enhancements to existing features, performance improvements, bug fixes, and a preview of the roadmap. You can read about the highlights common to all ArcGIS Runtime SDKs in the shared ArcGIS Runtime blog post and additional details in the 100.11 Release Notes.

For our .NET community here are several more highlights...

 

 

API: Support for WinUI 3 (preview)

 

With the 100.11 release we have updated the preview of ArcGIS Runtime support for WinUI 3 to target version 0.5.5 which was released recently as part of Project Reunion 0.5. 

Note: While WinUI 3 - Project Reunion 0.5 is the first stable, supported version of WinUI 3 that can be used to create production apps that can be published to the Microsoft Store, support for WinUI with ArcGIS Runtime is still in Preview and cannot be used in production at this time.

To try out ArcGIS Runtime and WinUI 3:

  • Follow the Microsoft docs Get Started steps to Create a WinUI 3 desktop app for C# and .NET 5.
  • Open the NuGet Package Manager for your new WinUI application project.
  • Install package Esri.ArcGISRuntime.WinUI version 100.11.0-preview3.
  • Open MainWindow.xaml.
  • Add a XAML namespace
    • e.g. xmlns:esri="using:Esri.ArcGISRuntime.UI.Controls"
  • Add a map view control (and remove the StackPanel)
    • e.g. <esri:MapView x:Name="MyMapView" />
  • Open MainWindow.xaml.cs
  • Open a browser and go to your ArcGIS Developer dashboard to get your API key.
  • Set your ArcGIS API key
    • e.g.  ArcGISRuntimeEnvironment.ApiKey = "<Your_API_key_here>";
  • Create a new map and set the map view's map property
    • e.g. MyMapView.Map = new Map(BasemapStyle.ArcGISChartedTerritory);
  • Run the app to see ArcGIS Runtime and Win UI in action.

The ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET sample viewer for WinUI has also been updated: https://github.com/Esri/arcgis-runtime-samples-dotnet/tree/main/src/WinUI


API : UI interaction and rendering

 

UI and rendering enhancements for the end-user and for the developer:

  • Improved support for system-wide dark UI appearance (Dark Mode) in the Attribution Control for MapView and SceneView on Android, iOS, UWP, and WinUI.
  • Support for mouse, trackpad, and keyboard gestures on iOS.
  • Support for the double-tap+drag gesture to zoom in/out in Android and iOS.

Deprecation notices

ArcGIS Runtime Local Server

 

The current release of ArcGIS Runtime Local Server SDK is version 100.10, released on April 15. The 100.10 release of Local Server provides geoprocessing and map package compatibility with ArcGIS Pro 2.7.x. To use the latest version, update your existing WPF projects to reference Esri.ArcGISRuntime.LocalServices 100.10 and use ArcGIS Pro 2.7.x to repackage any geoprocessing and map packages used by your application.

 

 

We thank you for your ongoing support and feedback and hope you will find these updates valuable as you continue to use ArcGIS Runtime to build amazing applications for your users.
