MapInitialViewpoint Property

Gets or sets the viewpoint where the map should start up at.

Namespace:  Esri.ArcGISRuntime.Mapping
Assembly:  Esri.ArcGISRuntime (in Esri.ArcGISRuntime.dll) Version: 100.11.0
public Viewpoint InitialViewpoint { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: Viewpoint

Set this viewpoint prior to loading the map in a MapView. Otherwise, setting initial viewpoint after the map is already loaded will have no effect on the map.



Example Name: SetMinMaxScale

Restrict zooming between specific scale ranges.
