# Property Geometry

#### Geometry

Gets the current geometry, updated as you interact with the view.

##### Declaration

`public Geometry Geometry { get; }`

##### Property Value

Type | Description |
---|---|

Geometry | The current geometry, updated as you interact with the view. |

##### Remarks

The geometry returned depends on the state of the GeometryEditor:

- Returns
`null`

while IsStarted is`false`

. - Returns an empty geometry (
is `true`

) immediately after the GeometryEditor was started using Start(GeometryType). - Returns the input geometry immediately after the GeometryEditor was started using Start(Geometry).
- Returns the current geometry while the GeometryEditor is in use (IsStarted is
`true`

).

If the GeometryEditor was started by calling Start(Geometry),
then the geometry is returned in the same SpatialReference as the input geometry. If the input
geometry spatial reference is `null`

, or the editor was started using Start(GeometryType),
then the geometry is returned in the spatial reference of the associated MapView.
If no spatial reference is set on either input geometry or via an associated map view, then the spatial reference of the
geometry will be `null`

.

Editing feature data that is reprojected on the fly can introduce spatial errors into the data. When accuracy is important, best practice is to use a spatial reference for the map view which matches the feature layer geometry you are editing. The ArcGIS Pro editing help topic Introduction to projection on the fly contains further advice.

The value of Geometry changes, raising the

- starting or stopping the geometry editor - for example using Start(GeometryType) or Stop()
- performing programmatic edits - for example using InsertVertex(MapPoint) or DeleteSelectedElement()
- performing interactive edits - for example adding or moving a vertex
- undoing or redoing edits - using Undo() or Redo()
