Geoshape using coordinates

Is it possible to allow a user to input coordinates to define the vertices of a geoshape question, rather than draw it on the map using the vertex or sketch methods? Are there any sample Javascripts out there at all?

Thanks very much for any pointers.

Hi @CherylWheeler11,

You can construct a geoshape from a geopoint question in a repeat using the sum() function. You could populate each geopoint either by placing it on the map or calculating it based on coordinate questions. The coordinates need to be space-separated latitude and longitude values in decimal degrees. See attached for an example.

The Lines and Polygons sample available under Esri Samples in Conenct also has some examples of calculating a geoshape with a series of coordinates.
