Point  On Polyline

Discussion created by gpw0976 on Nov 8, 2012
I am working on a Silverlight project that I need to be able to get the perpendicular distance to a polyline from a selected map point as well as the distance from that calculated perpendicular point to the beginning of the polyline. I hope that makes sense. I have been able to get the attribute data I need from selecting the polyline, but I have found no help with the distance stuff. Any help would be appreciated.
