There were a couple of awesome methods in Avenue for ArcView:


Don't laugh, but one of the reasons I updated to 10 from 9, was new method for Geometry

point=polyline.positionAlongLine (value,{use_percentage})

that is equivalent of 1st Avenue method (wrong name in my opinion anyway). Does equivalent of the 2nd Avenue method exist in 10.2?

Yes, it does exist. Use polyline.measureOnLine(point_geometry).
