Hi , I am working in a complete disconnected environment. I want to create and edit features. How can I use file geodatabase with arcgis runtime app, so that i can persist data and later modify as and when required. I am unable to find any help in the documentation regarding file geodatabase ?

Thanks in advance

The preferred geodatabase in ArcGIS Runtime is the mobile geodatabase (Create an offline map—ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET (WPF) | ArcGIS for Developers).

File geodatabases are supported using the WPF API on Windows with ArcGIS Runtime Local Server via LocalMapService and LocalFeatureService types. For more information see:

Local Server—ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET (WPF) | ArcGIS for Developers 

Layer types described—ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET (WPF) | ArcGIS for Developers 

Package Map—Data Management toolbox | ArcGIS Desktop

But , the mobile geodatabase does not support editing of features until and

unless I use feature service as per the documentation . I don't want to use

sync enabled geodatabase . How can I work in complete offline mode so that

editing is supported and data get persisted in geodatabase ?
