I am using arcgis javascript api in my application and working with a dynamic map service resource exposed by the ArcGIS Server REST API . Hence I am making using of the ArcGISDynamicMapServiceLayer to load.


But after adding the layer of ArcGISDynamicMapServiceLayer to the map, the map is not taking projection of this layer.


So i tried using GeometryService.project by passing the ProjectParameters() and i am trying to set the  ArcGISDynamicMapServiceLayer.initialExtent and project toward it.


But i am getting ArcGISDynamicMapServiceLayer.initialExtent as


spatialReference: { wkid: 4326}

type: "extent"

xmax: 180

xmin: -180

ymax: 90

ymin: -90


on the first load and then after that works fine.


So what is the best way if i just want to load a map and then project towards ArcGISDynamicMapServiceLayer layer on the map?
