I'm trying to download a geodatabase using xamarin C#, when I run the task, I get the following error returned:
"File exception: The supplied file path is to an existing directory, it must be a path to file."
Why would a new geodatabase need to be a path to a file? Shouldn't it in fact need a directory path? Confused on what to make if this error.
Sample of some of my code doing this:
//using this as the URI for testing
var featureTableUri = new System.Uri("http://sampleserver6.arcgisonline.com/arcgis/rest/services/Sync/SaveTheBaySync/FeatureServer");
//code of how I'm getting the output path for the GDB
var outputBasePath = System.Environment.GetFolderPath(System.Environment.SpecialFolder.Personal);
var outputPathFinal = Path.Combine(outputBasePath, "newGDB");
//here is where I'm set up generating GDB job
var generateGdbJob = gdbSyncTask.GenerateGeodatabase(generateGdbParams, outputPathFinal);
//this is where I star the job
generateGdbJob.JobChanged += OnGenerateGdbJobChanged;
//below is the part that is returning the error (so I know it's from the server service)
private void OnGenerateGdbJobChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
var job = sender as GenerateGeodatabaseJob;
if (job.Error != null)
Console.WriteLine("Error creating geodatabase: " + job.Error.Message);
//the job.Error.Message is where I'm getting the error I'm not sure of...
