Hi Guys
I wanted to find the nearest features (it can be point, line and polygon layers) from an user input or search location and identify 5 nearest locations along with their distances.

Have anybody worked on this link below. If so, can anyone point me to the right sample application, please.

On the above link,  there is no sample application or code to show how this works.

Secondly, there should be a way to do without using FindNearest class, as this class has only been introduced with V3.7.
If this is the case, then how GIS developers across the world would have created application without this class.

I think, some one should really have an answer to this.
