The problem I'm trying to solve is to find a point on a line given another point on the same line and a distance from the point. I've been looking on the various RouteTask examples but they mostly tackle the problem of finding a route given two points. Can anyone advise if RouteTask is the right approach for this kind of problem, and how do I do it?
