AGSENCLayer Class Reference

Description

A layer that displays ENC data.

Electronic navigational charts (ENC) are georeferenced vector datasets for the visualization and analysis of hydrographic and maritime information. ArcGIS Runtime supports ENC that conform to the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) S-57 standard.

Functional characteristics ENC layer supports identify and selection but does not support query or time. ENC layers cannot be displayed in a scene.

Performance characteristics ENC layers differ from other layer types in that ENC content is cached in an internal collection of SENC files. When an ENC layer is displayed, only the content in the SENC files is referenced. SENC files are produced when an ENC cell is read for the first time and updated as update sets are applied. You can set the path to the SENC storage directory with the AGSENCEnvironmentSettings::SENCDataDirectory property. SENC files are in a binary format that is not intended to be shared between platforms or versions of ArcGIS Runtime.

Note
AGSENCEnvironmentSettings::SENCDataDirectory and AGSENCEnvironmentSettings::resourceDirectory need to be set before ENC data can be used
License Restrictions:
This feature requires a Standard license for production deployment. No license required in Developer mode for testing.

Method Documentation

◆ cancelLoad

- (void) cancelLoad
requiredinherited

Cancels loading if it is in progress, otherwise it does nothing. This should be called carefully because other objects could be waiting for loadWithCompletion: or retryLoadWithCompletion: to complete and this will call them all back with the error of NSUserCancelledError

Since
100

◆ clearSelection

- (void) clearSelection

Clears selection on all features.

Since
100.2

◆ doCancelLoading

- (void) doCancelLoading

Never call this method directly. The framework calls this method on a background thread when cancelLoad (AGSLoadable-p) is called. It is meant to be overriden by subclasses. Subclasses should override this method to cancel loading their data and call loadDidFinishWithError: (AGSLoadableBase(ForSubclassEyesOnly)) at the end passing in an error representing NSUserCancelledError.

Since
100

Provided by category AGSLoadableBase(ForSubclassEyesOnly).

◆ doStartLoading:

- (void) doStartLoading: (BOOL)  retrying

Never call this method directly. The framework calls this method on a background thread when loadWithCompletion: (AGSLoadable-p) or retryLoadWithCompletion: (AGSLoadable-p) is called. It is meant to be overriden by subclasses. Subclasses should override this method to load their data and call loadDidFinishWithError: (AGSLoadableBase(ForSubclassEyesOnly)) upon completion, passing in the error if any.

Parameters
retryingflag that is true if this method was called from retryLoadWithCompletion: (AGSLoadable-p).
Since
100

Provided by category AGSLoadableBase(ForSubclassEyesOnly).

◆ ENCLayerWithCell:

+ (instancetype) ENCLayerWithCell: (AGSENCCell *)  cell

Initialize the layer with the provided ENC Cell

Parameters
cellused as the source of data for the ENC Layer
Returns
Initialized ENC layer
Since
100.2

◆ fetchLegendInfosWithCompletion:

- (id<AGSCancelable>) fetchLegendInfosWithCompletion: (void(^)(NSArray< AGSLegendInfo * > *__nullable legendInfos, NSError *__nullable error))  completion

Fetches the array of legend infos (AGSLegendInfo) for this layer.

Since
100

◆ initWithCell:

- (instancetype) initWithCell: (AGSENCCell *)  cell

Initialize the layer with the provided ENC Cell

Parameters
cellused as the source of data for the ENC Layer
Returns
Initialized ENC layer
Since
100.2

◆ isEqualToLayer:

- (BOOL) isEqualToLayer: (AGSLayer *)  other

◆ isVisibleAtScale:

- (BOOL) isVisibleAtScale: (double)  scale

Check whether this layer is visible at a given scale.

Since
100

◆ loadDidFinishWithError:

- (void) loadDidFinishWithError: (nullable NSError *)  error

Only subclasses should call this method in doStartLoading: (AGSLoadableBase(ForSubclassEyesOnly)) and doCancelLoading (AGSLoadableBase(ForSubclassEyesOnly)) when done loading or failed to load.

Since
100

Provided by category AGSLoadableBase(ForSubclassEyesOnly).

◆ loadWithCompletion:

- (void) loadWithCompletion: (nullable void(^)(NSError *__nullable error))  completion
requiredinherited

Loads data for the object asynchronously. The completion block is invoked upon completion.

You can call this method any number of times, however only one attempt is made to load the data. If it is already loading, it will just continue to load (i.e. not force a reload). If it has already loaded successfully, the completion block will be invoked right away. If it has already failed to load, the completion block will be invoked right away with error previously encountered. This method supports multiple callers and will call them all back on completion. However, each caller's completion block will be invoked once and only once.

Parameters
completionblock that is invoked when object loads successfully or fails to load. An error is passed to the block if the object fails to load.
Note
The completion block is always invoked on the main thread.
Since
100

- retryLoadWithCompletion: to force reload

◆ onLoadStatusChanged

- (void) onLoadStatusChanged

Never call this method directly. The framework calls this method on a background thread when AGSLoadable::loadStatus changes is called. Subclasses can optionally implement this to know when their loading status has changed.

Since
100

Provided by category AGSLoadableBase(ForSubclassEyesOnly).

◆ retryLoadWithCompletion:

- (void) retryLoadWithCompletion: (nullable void(^)(NSError *__nullable error))  completion
requiredinherited

Tries to reload when an object has failed to load. This method should be called judiciously. It should be called when:

  1. you didn't have network connectivity earlier when it failed and you want to retry now that you have connectivity
  2. the server was down earlier when it failed and you want to retry
  3. the request is taking too long and you want to cancel it and retry, in which case you will first call cancelLoad and then this method

If the data hasn't started loading, it will start loading. If it is already loading, it will just continue to load. If it has already loaded successfully, calls back right away. If it has already failed to load, tries again. This method supports multiple callers and will call them all back on completion. However, each caller's completion block will be invoked once and only once.

Parameters
completionblock that is invoked when object loads successfully or fails to load. An error is passed to the block if the object fails to load.
Note
The completion block is always invoked on the main thread.
Since
100

◆ selectFeature:

- (void) selectFeature: (AGSENCFeature *)  feature

Select the specified feature. The map will be updated to render the feature so that it stands out. Only one feature can be selected at a time. Note that some ENC features are rendered as multiple objects on the map - for example, a soundings feature might consist of many individual measurements, each of which will be highlighted when the feature is selected.

Parameters
featureto select
