Using the ESRI javasript API, is there a way to set the distance the map will move when panning? When I fire the map.panUp(), for example, it pans, but about twice as far as I would like it to.

  • i think it is going to be a function of the display width converted to map distance. – Brad Nesom Feb 18 '15 at 19:12
  • This is probably more of a pain, but you could download the JS and dig through ESRI's code to see how it is calculated. If you don't like it, then modify it and reference a copy on your webserver instead of ESRI's. – Branco Feb 18 '15 at 20:18
  • Do you also want to change the behaviour of the pan navigation buttons, or just what happens when you call the API's panUp function? – tomfumb Feb 19 '15 at 16:33

its not possible to get control over pan behavior in the JSAPI directly, but Ryan Mordoff wrote a really cool plugin and shared it on Github.

i think most people are using it to increase the default multiplier, but you could also use it to achieve the inverse.
