Pop-up windows

In this topic

Version 3.7

Pop-up windows are windows that provide information about features. Pop-up windows can include descriptive text, links, images, and charts. Pop-up windows can be created with the ArcGIS API for Flex and the new PopUpRenderer class. They can also be created on ArcGIS.com using the ArcGIS.com map viewer or ArcGIS Explorer Online.

A feature on the map can have descriptive information that is displayed in a pop-up window when you click the feature. This descriptive information can include a title, text, links to other websites, media elements such as an image, or a graph derived from the properties of the feature. It can also provide links to attachments of the feature.

You can configure what is displayed in the pop-up window for the features in each layer in the map, specifying how the fields (attributes) of each feature are represented in the pop-up window. You can also configure the pop-up window in several different ways.

Displaying the pop-up window for a feature

To display a pop-up window for a feature, click the feature on the map. Some features may not be configured to show a pop-up window. When viewing a feature's pop-up window, you can interact with the content to click links, interact with media, open attachments, and so on.

If the pop-up content has multiple media elements, you can click the arrows on the sides of the pop-up window to page through each media element.

To close a pop-up window, click the close button at the top right of the pop-up window, or click anywhere on the map.

Configuring pop-up windows

In the ArcGIS API for Flex, the pop-up window is configured with the PopUpRenderer class.
