UWP runtime, version 100.2.1.


I am geocoding an address using Esri.ArcGISRuntime.Tasks.Geocoding.LocatorTask and would like to adjust the scores of the results using the location and distance parameters available in Geocode REST API


However, I cannot see a way that the distance parameter can be set. The parameters class (Esri.ArcGISRuntime.Tasks.Geocoding.GeocodeParameters) contains a PreferredSearchLocation property that will set the location parameter for the request, but it doesn't have a property for setting the distance. Using fiddler to inspect the request, I can see that the distance parameter is set to 50000 by default. This does not appear to be in any of the examples.


How can I set the distance parameter of a geocode request when using the LocatorTask?
