I want to have a measure tool that calculates the area of a sketch the user draws. But I want the measures to be in a projected coord sys (UTM) and my map is in a geo coord sys (WM). Is there a way I can do the projection and the measurement in the same round trip to the serve rather than having to do 2 calls?

This link

describes this very topic and then provides a link to another sample that has nothing to do with projection so that is not very helpful.
