    Print/Export map

    miripsystematics-co-il-esridist
      Hi,

      Is there any way to print or export the contents of a map in ArcGIS Runtime?

      Thanks,
      Miri Revivo.

          Hi,

          We're currently working on a print capability and hope to have this ready by the next beta later in the year.

          Cheers

          Mike

              Could we use the ArcPY in a geoprocessing service to create a PDF?

                Hi,

                while you are waiting for Esri you can use the Telerik controls.

                I use the Telerik controls to print ArcGIS maps.

                I convert them to an Image using WriteableBitmap and then print them with the PdfFormatProvider.

                here is a code example:

                            // convert to image because of problems with graphicslayers not showing up
                            // correctly (in lefttop corner instead on the correct location of the map) when writing to pdf
                            WriteableBitmap wb = new WriteableBitmap(this.yourUIElement, new ScaleTransform() { ScaleX = 1, ScaleY = 1 });
                
                            Image image = new Image();
                            image.Height = 64;
                            image.Margin = new Thickness(10);
                            image.Source = wb;
                
                            // make raddocument
                            Section section = new Section();
                            Paragraph paragraph = new Paragraph();
                            InlineUIContainer container = new InlineUIContainer();
                            container.UiElement = image;
                            container.Width = 750;
                            container.Height = 1000;
                
                            paragraph.Inlines.Add(container);
                            section.Blocks.Add(paragraph);
                
                            RadDocument document = new RadDocument();
                            document.DefaultPageLayoutSettings = new PageLayoutSettings(PaperTypes.Letter);
                            document.PageViewMargin = new SizeF(0.0f, 0.0f);
                            document.ParagraphDefaultSpacingBefore = 0;
                            document.ParagraphDefaultSpacingAfter = 0;
                
                            // use padding to center, perhaps find a more appropriate way to do this in the future.
                            document.SectionDefaultPageMargin = new Telerik.Windows.Documents.Layout.Padding(32, 25, 0, 0);
                            document.Children.Add(section);
                
                            PdfFormatProvider provider = new PdfFormatProvider();
                
                            string extension = "pdf";
                
                            SaveFileDialog dialog = new SaveFileDialog()
                            {
                                DefaultExt = extension,
                                Filter = String.Format("{1} file (*.{0})|*.{0}|All files (*.*)|*.*", extension, "PDF"),
                                FilterIndex = 1
                            };
                
                            bool? dialogResult = dialog.ShowDialog();
                            if (dialogResult == true)
                            {
                                using (Stream output = dialog.OpenFile())
                                {
                                    provider.Export(document, output);
                                    provider.ExportSettings = new PdfExportSettings() { InlineUIContainersExportMode = 0 };
                                }
                            }

                  I haven't found the print capacity in Beta 2 of runtime. Will this be available earlier next year? and will it be able to print to A1 in size?

                  Cheers

                    Hi,

                    Unfortunately, we didn't manage to include any specific printing support in the API in Beta 2. You might want to take a look at this SL/WPF sample from Dominique Broux: http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=e361c2cc69784fcba34358d0458f66e3.

                    Cheers

                    Mike
