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.

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).

◆ initWithURL:

- (instancetype) initWithURL: (NSURL *)  URL

Creates an AGSWFSService with provided URL to the service. The URL is the 'GetCapabilities' URL for the WFS service.

Parameters
URLof the WFS service.
Since
100.5

◆ 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.

- 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.

◆ WFSServiceWithURL:

+ (instancetype) WFSServiceWithURL: (NSURL *)  URL

Creates an AGSWFSService with provided URL to the service. The URL is the 'GetCapabilities' URL for the WFS service.

Parameters
URLof the WFS service.
