Samples - Table of Contents

See Table of Contents under different platforms


  1. Fork and then clone the repo or download the .zip file.
  2. Confirm the supported system configuration for the API of interest in the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET:
  1. For the platform you want to view: open the solution, restore NuGet packages, build, and run the application
  • WPF: src\Desktop\ArcGISRuntime.WPF.Viewer.sln
  • UWP: src\Windows\ArcGISRuntime.UWP.Viewer.sln
  • Xamarin.Android: src\Android\ArcGISRuntime.Xamarin.Samples.Android.sln
  • Xamarin.iOS: src\iOS\ArcGISRuntime.Xamari.Samples.iOS.sln
  • Xamarin.Forms: src\Windows\ArcGISRuntime.Xamarin.Samples.Forms.sln


  • All: src\ArcGISRuntime.Viewers.All.sln
  • Windows ( WPF / UWP ): src\ArcGISRuntime.Viewers.Windows.sln
  • Xamarin (iOS, Android, Forms): src\ArcGISRuntime.Viewers.Xamarin.sln


When compiling Universal Windows Platform samples, make sure that you are compiling against x86/x64/ARM platform and not using AnyCPU.



Offline Data

Several samples require local data to function properly. That data is downloaded to local storage automatically at runtime. This process is handled by the DataManager class (located in the 'Managers' folder in each view project). Samples that use the data manager to download their data are differentiated as follows:

  • They have RequiresOfflineData set to true in their metadata.json files
  • They have one or more entries under DataItemIds in their metadata.json files (these are portal item Ids)
  • They use the data manager to identify the correct path for their offline files at run time
