The MobileMapPackage type exposes the following members.

Public methodCode exampleMobileMapPackage
Initializes a new instance of the MobileMapPackage class.
Public propertyCode exampleExpiration
Gets the expiration details for this mobile map package, if provided.
Public propertyItem
Gets the mobile map package's Item describing metadata about the package.
Public propertyLoadError
Gets the Exception associated with the last load error.
Public propertyCode exampleLoadStatus
Gets the load status.
Public propertyCode exampleLocatorTask
Gets the LocatorTask for the mobile map package.
Public propertyCode exampleMaps
Gets a collection of Maps from the MobileMapPackage.
Public propertyPath
Gets the path to the mobile map package.
Public propertyVersion
Gets the mobile map package's version.
Public methodCancelLoad
Cancel loading metadata for the object.
Public methodCode exampleClose
Closes a mobile map package.
Public methodStatic memberIsDirectReadSupportedAsync Obsolete.
Checks if the mobile map package can be read directly without requiring to be unpacked.
Public methodCode exampleLoadAsync
Load the metadata for the object asynchronously.
Public methodStatic memberCode exampleOpenAsync
Opens a new instance of the MobileMapPackage class.
Public methodRetryLoadAsync
Loads or retries loading metadata for the object asynchronously.
Public methodStatic memberUnpackAsync(String, String)
Unpacks a mobile map package file (.mmpk) to an output directory.
Public methodStatic memberUnpackAsync(String, String, CancellationToken)
Unpacks a mobile map package file (.mmpk) to an output directory.
Public eventLoaded
Event that is raised when the object is done loading.
Public eventLoadStatusChanged
Event that is raised when the LoadStatus property changes.

Mobile map packages allow you to work with maps on a mobile device. A mobile map package contains all of the files necessary to work with your maps and is stored on a device as either:

  • A single archive file with a .mmpk extension.
  • A directory containing an unpacked mobile map package.

You can create a mobile map package using either:

A mobile map package can encapsulate one or more maps along with their layers and data. Each package contains an Item with metadata about the package (description, thumbnail, etc.).

Mobile map packages created with ArcGIS Pro can also include transportation networks, locators, and links to online services. You can choose whether to use:

  • A tile package (such as .tpkx or .vptk) or an online basemap as the Basemap.
  • A mobile geodatabase (.geodatabase) or an online feature service as one of the OperationalLayers.
  • Online services (such as traffic or weather) can provide excellent contextual information for your users. If the mobile map package is going to be used in areas of poor connectivity, however, you must ensure that data critical to your workflow is stored locally on the device.

Mobile map packages implement the ILoadable interface; you need to load the MobileMapPackage before you can access its content. Once loaded you can:

  • Determine the version of this package using the Version property. ArcGIS Runtime currently supports mobile map packages up to and including major version 4. If the package is from an unsupported version, it will fail to load.
  • Discover whether the mobile map package has expired using the Expiration property.
  • Access the individual maps and display them in a MapView.
  • Programmatically add, modify, and remove layers in the map. Mobile map packages, however, are read-only and these changes to maps or layers are not persisted.
