AGSSurface Class Reference

Description

A surface providing elevation context for a scene.

Instances of this class represent a surface which provides an elevation context for a scene's basemap and operational layers. The surface is defined by a mesh of elevation points. Z values for geographic data can then be interpreted as relative/draped (placed using a specific surface) or absolute (not using any surface).

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

◆ 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.

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).

◆ elevationForPoint:completion:

- (id<AGSCancelable>) elevationForPoint: (AGSPoint *)  point
completion: (void(^)(double elevation, NSError *__nullable error))  completion 

Elevation (in meters) at the given location on the surface.

Parameters
pointon the surface.
completionblock that will be invoked when the operation completes.
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.

◆ 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

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.

Property Documentation

◆ backgroundGrid

- (AGSBackgroundGrid*) backgroundGrid
readwritenonatomicstrong

The background grid used with the surface.

Since
100.1

◆ elevationExaggeration

- (float) elevationExaggeration
readwritenonatomicassign

The exaggeration for the surface. The altitude values of the surface data are multiplied by the exaggeration value. Default is 1.0.

Since
100

◆ elevationSources

- (NSArray<AGSElevationSource*>*) elevationSources
readwritenonatomiccopy

The list of elevation sources in the surface. Values from all sources are combined to arrive at final elevation values for the surface.

Since
100

◆ enabled

- (BOOL) enabled
readwritenonatomicassign

Indicates whether the surface is enabled or not.

Since
100

◆ loadError

- (NSError*) loadError
readnonatomicstronginherited

The error that was encountered during the most recent load operation. Will be nil if the operation succeeded.

Since
100

◆ loadStatus

- (AGSLoadStatus) loadStatus
readrequirednonatomicassigninherited

Status of the load operation.

Since
100

◆ name

- (NSString*) name
readwritenonatomiccopy

Name of the surface.

Since
100

◆ navigationConstraint

- (AGSNavigationConstraint) navigationConstraint
readwritenonatomicassign

The type of navigation constraint from the surface.

Since
100.5

◆ opacity

- (float) opacity
readwritenonatomicassign

Opacity of the surface. Defaults to 1 (fully opaque). Permitted values range between 0 - 1 (both inclusive). All layers in the basemap associated with this surface are affected by the opacity of the surface, as is the backgroundGrid of the surface. The opacity of the basemap layers and background grid are multiplied by this opacity value.
