dear Readers,


good afternoon.  We are implementing a web map solution and started with a ESRI suggested template from: 


We made modifications to the template to point to the correct layers and it was working fine.  we were able to see our layers in the layer list, with appropriate base maps, legends and measure.


One of the users requested a dropdown where they could select pre-defined scales like 1:10,000, 1:100,000 like they are used to seeing in ArcMap.  I had mentioned in one of the meetings that it might not be possible in a straightforward way.


I am wondering whether there is a complicated way to implement it.


Further, in one of my previous ESRI demos, I remember the tech staff members requesting end users not to reproduce or try to imitate ArcMap features in JS or SL.  Any URL or best practices document that indicate the same will be beneficial.
