Use case

For executing offline geoprocessing tasks in your ArcGIS Runtime apps via an offline (local) server.

How to use the sample

Click Start Local Server to start the Local Server. Click Stop Local Server to stop the Local Server.

The Map Service control lets you to pick a local service that is available.

After browsing for the desired file, click Start Service to start the selected service.

When the running service's url appears, select it and click Navigate to service. To stop this running service, click Stop Service.

How it works

To start a LocalServer and attach a LocalService:

  1. Create and run a local server with LocalServer.Instance.
  2. Start the server asynchronously with server.StartAsync().
  3. Create and run a local service. Here is an example of running a LocalMapService:

    1. Instantiate LocalMapService(Url) to create a local map service with the given URL path to map package (mpk or mpkx file).
    2. Start the job with LocalMapService.StartAsync(). The service is added to the LocalServer automatically.
  4. Stop the local server with LocalServer.Instance.StopAsync().
