Bug: CircleEventArgs and MapCircleEventArgs return incorrect values for ScreenRadius and MapRadius


CircleEventArgs and MapCircleEventArgs are returning incorrect values for the ScreenRadius and MapRadius properties when using the ArcGIS Server .NET Web ADF.


This is a known issue.


Access the MapCircleEventsArgs MapRadius property and perform additional calculations. To determine the correct map radius, divide the MapCircleEventsArgs MapRadius value by 4. To determine the correct screen radius, divide the MapCircleEventsArgs MapRadius value by 4 and then divide the result by the map to screen ratio (resolution).

public void ServerAction(ESRI.ArcGIS.ADF.Web.UI.WebControls.ToolEventArgs args)
Map mmap = args.Control as Map;
MapCircleEventArgs mcea = (MapCircleEventArgs)args;

double maptoscreenratio = mmap.Extent.Width / mmap.ViewWidth;
double mapradius = mcea.MapRadius / 4;
double screenradius = (mcea.MapRadius / 4) / maptoscreenratio;

System.Diagnostics.Debug.Print("Map To Screen Ratio: {0}", maptoscreenratio);
System.Diagnostics.Debug.Print("Map Radius: {0} units)", mapradius);
System.Diagnostics.Debug.Print("Screen Radius: {0} pixels)", screenradius);
