geometryService.distance not returning what's expected

This is killing me. Been working on this for hours and can't seem to work this out.

Here is my function.


function selectInBuffer(results){
        sResults = {displayFieldName: null, features:[]};
        var feat;
        var features = results.features;

        for (var i = 0; i < features.length; i++) {
          var feat = features[i];
          tfeat[i] = feat;
          var distParams = new DistanceParameters();
          distParams.distanceUnit = geometryService.UNIT_FOOT;
          distParams.geometry1 = pt;
          distParams.geometry2 = feat.geometry;
          distParams.geodesic = true;
          distp = geometryService.distance(distParams);
          tfeat[i].dist = distp;
          if (!sResults.displayFieldName){ sResults.displayFieldName = results.displayFieldName }

        registry.byId("grid").set("content", formatResults(results));

According to all the samples I have seen, var distp should be just a number. I am getting back an object that I can't seem to do anything with it.


Here is what is return with firebug




What I am trying to do is create a buffer, which works fine. Then query a layer to return the features in that buffer, again works fine. What I am doing here is loop through those results to push a field into the object array with the distance. Then I want to sort the array based on the distance. Then show the results in a grid.


Thanks in advance for help.
