HI everyone,


I don't know how to center the result of a findind task in my map, the aim is to select a State (being highlighted on the map) and then zoom and center into the selected State, but only is selected and zoomed in the middle. Anyone could help me? thanks in advance.

Part of the code is this:


//create find task with url to map service

        findTask = new esri.tasks.FindTask("");


        //create find parameters and define known values

        findParams = new esri.tasks.FindParameters();

        findParams.returnGeometry = true;

        findParams.layerIds = [2];

        findParams.searchFields = ["state_name"];



      function execute(searchText) {

        //set the search text to find parameters

        findParams.searchText = searchText;

        findTask.execute(findParams, showResults);



      function showResults(results) {

        //symbology for graphics

        var markerSymbol = new esri.symbol.SimpleMarkerSymbol(esri.symbol.SimpleMarkerSymbol.STYLE_SQUARE, 10, new esri.symbol.SimpleLineSymbol(esri.symbol.SimpleLineSymbol.STYLE_SOLID, new dojo.Color([255, 0, 0]), 1), new dojo.Color([0, 255, 0, 0.25]));

        var lineSymbol = new esri.symbol.SimpleLineSymbol(esri.symbol.SimpleLineSymbol.STYLE_DASH, new dojo.Color([255, 0, 0]), 1);

        var polygonSymbol = new esri.symbol.SimpleFillSymbol(esri.symbol.SimpleFillSymbol.STYLE_NONE, new esri.symbol.SimpleLineSymbol(esri.symbol.SimpleLineSymbol.STYLE_DASHDOT, new dojo.Color([255, 0, 0]), 2), new dojo.Color([255, 255, 0, 0.25]));


        //find results return an array of findResult.;

        var dataForGrid = [];

        //Build an array of attribute information and add each found graphic to the map

        dojo.forEach(results, function(result) {


          var graphic = result.feature;


          dataForGrid.push([result.layerName, result.foundFieldName, result.value]);

          switch (graphic.geometry.type) {

          case "point":



          case "polyline":



          case "polygon":







          map.centerAndZoom(??????, 12);  //Here is the problem.
