I am very new to using ArcGIS runtime SDK for C#. I have loaded a polygon from a shapefile. I wish to query if a lat/long point is inside or outside the polygon?

How can I do this?

Thanks in advance!

Are you talking about the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF? – blah238 Mar 12 '13 at 21:56

The Geometry Engine has a contains method:

static boolean  contains(Geometry geometry1, Geometry geometry2, SpatialReference spatialReference) 

Just check if the point is in the polygon...
