How to access an external file form ArcGIS Pro add-in

Question asked by epuriarun on Mar 22, 2019

o All,

 

I am using a config.JSON file with ArcGIS Pro to read some user-defined parameters and which are changeable by the user.

 

string path = String.Join("\\", System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().Location.Split('\\').Take(System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().Location.Split('\\').Count() - 1).ToArray())+ "\\Config.json";
string json = File.ReadAllText(path);
jsonData = JObject.Parse(json);

 

 I installed this add-in another system, then the user needs to change the .json file according to user local path and parameters.

 

I am not able to get the .json external exposed and it staying inside.esriAddinX. Even I alter the .json in .esriAddinX, it's correctpting.

 

Please may I know, how to use/Change content in JSON and add-in should read the data from .json.

 

 

Thanks,

Arun E
