Is it possible to print my current MapView with all features, layers, etc. to a larger resolution plotter? I have not seen examples of doing so online. I am looking to do this via the WPF SDK.
For ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF we had a couple of printing samples:
Client-side printing: ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF Samples
Export Webmap: ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF Samples
Thanks Mike. I started out looking at version 100 but it appears that it is still missing quite a few features. And getting to the 10.2.x examples isn't very straightforward. Every time I searched I found example code for version 100. I think I'm going to have to stick with 10.2.x for now.
When you say "10.2.x", do you mean ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET 10.2.7? In which case, I can move this post to the .NET SDK forum and remove my answer above (those samples are for the older (and retired) ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF 10.2.5).
Thanks for the feedback on accessing the 10.2.x samples. Assuming you mean 10.2.7, there are two ways to access them:
Release: Release Samples for v10.2.7 Release · Esri/arcgis-runtime-samples-dotnet · GitHub
Branch: GitHub - Esri/arcgis-runtime-samples-dotnet at 10.2.7
If you feel there would be a better/easier way for us to provide access to samples for previous versions of our SDKs we would greatly appreciate your feedback.
Yes Mike. I did mean the 10.2.7 version. Thanks for pointing me to those samples.
So one thing that I've seen done by some control vendors is that they'll have some control that is used consistently across their web site to display the version of subject. This is used in the forums and documentation to make it very clear what version is being talked about. There should be some easy way to navigate between the versions as well. So for the documentation area you might have a dropdown/combobox that lets you select the version. I'm very new to ArcGIS and it took me a while to figure out just how different the available versions were. Your response made it sound as if 10.2.7 was significantly different from 10.2.5. Is that the case? I just wasn't expecting a revision difference to have very different sample code hence my bundling of the minor versions together with "10.2.x".
This points to another issue that I'm having. How do I search for questions on just 10.2.7? If I look for question on the SDK for .NET then I see answers that are relevant only to version 100 which works very differently from 10.2.7. I'm just having a hard time learning where to start with all of this. This really isn't related to the original post so my apologies for that but I'm not sure where to ask such things.
There are two different products:
ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF (retired as of July 2016, last release v10.2.5)
ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET (current release v100.0, previous release v10.2.7)
The '.NET SDK' is essentially an evolution of the old 'WPF SDK'. It still contains an API for WPF because it's still a major development platform. But over time we have had to stop supporting some platforms as they have been deprecated/retired or are no longer promoted (Silverlight, Windows Phone 7/8, Store 8.1, Phone 8.1). We had a significant version number change from v10.2.7 to v100.0 to indicate the extent of the change in terms of internal architecture, public API surface and the SDK product. The v10.2.7 release is currently in the Extended Support phase, which continues right through to November 2018 to allow time to move to v100.0 (Esri Support 10.2.7).
If you're just starting your development now you should definitely use v100.0.
Doc for the current/latest release: https://developers.arcgis.com/net/
Doc for the previous version: https://developers.arcgis.com/net/10-2/
Thanks for the feedback on navigating versions on these forums, I'll pass that on.
My concern with starting with v100 is that the sample code doesn’t seem to be as complete and I’m assuming that there are features that just haven’t been ported to this release yet. Because it’s so new there are fewer solutions posted on the forums as well. Is there any prepared training available outside of the online developer’s guide and sample code? Is any customized training offered? Just trying to figure out what the quickest way to get me up to speed on this control is.
