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 using the 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.
