simple symbol

Simple symbols are symbols that that follow the web map specification. Developers can create and work with them through the simple symbol classes in the ArcGIS Runtime API. These are also the symbols provided by web maps or from feature services when advanced symbology is turned off. Simple symbols can be created for points (marker symbols), lines (line symbols), and polygons (fill symbols). Each simple symbol type provides an enumeration of predefined styles that can be applied to the symbol.
