Image of find address

Use case

A user can input a raw address into your app's search bar and zoom to the address location.

How to use the sample

For simplicity, the sample comes loaded with a set of suggested addresses. Choose an address from the suggestions or submit your own address to show its location on the map in a callout.

How it works

  1. Create a LocatorTask using the URL to a locator service.
  2. Set the GeocodeParameters for the locator task and specify the geocode's attributes.
  3. Get the matching results from the GeocodeResult using locatorTask.GeocodeAsync(addressString, geocodeParameters).
  4. Create a Graphic with the geocode result's location and store the geocode result's attributes in the graphic's attributes.
  5. Show the graphic in a GraphicsOverlay.
