Class Callout

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Styleable, EventTarget, Skinnable

    public final class Callout
    extends Control
    A Callout typically displays text and image content from a GeoElement, such as a Feature. A callout is displayed on the GeoView at a given map coordinate. The callout is displayed with a leader (arrow) that points to the given location.

    The callout can't be created directly, it must be retrieved from the view by calling GeoView.getCallout(). A GeoView has only one Callout. Call showCalloutAt(com.esri.arcgisruntime.geometry.Point) to display the Callout and dismiss() to hide it (this will clean up any internal resources, so prefer calling it over changing the visibility directly.)

    A callout with default view looks like this:

    The following screenshot shows a callout with intentionally exaggerated properties that you would never see in a real-world application. The image does, however, label the main properties of a callout, and the table describes how to access and modify them.

    Label Properties
    1

    Title - Short description of callout's purpose. See titleProperty(), titleColorProperty().

    2

    Detail - Detail text for the callout, which might be location-specific, as in both screenshots above. See detailProperty(), detailColorProperty().

    3

    Image - Optional image. See imageProperty().

    Default View

    The default view is a rectangular area composed of 1, 2, and 3 (title, detail, and image). The default view is assigned if you do not provide a custom view.

    Custom View

    You can provide a custom view, which covers the same area as the default view. See customViewProperty().

    4

    Margin - Empty space surrounding the custom or default view. See marginProperty().

    5

    Border - borderWidthProperty(), borderColorProperty().

    6

    Leader length - How much the point of the leader sticks out from the callout rectangle. (Dotted lines in the labeled screenshot are for illustration only. They do not appear on the actual callout.) See leaderLengthProperty().

    7

    Leader width - The leader's width can occupy most of the open side of the callout rectangle, as in the labeled screenshot, or a smaller portion of it, as in the default screenshot. (Dotted lines in the labeled screenshot are for illustration only. They do not appear on the actual callout.) See leaderWidthProperty().

    8

    Corner radius - In the default screenshot, the corner radius is the default of 10 device-independent pixels (dp). In the labeled screenshot, the corner radius is set to 1 dp, which appears as a right angle. See cornerRadiusProperty().

    9

    Callout location - Location on the map to which the callout is pointing. See showCalloutAt(Point), showCalloutAt(GeoElement, Point), showCalloutAt(Point, Duration), showCalloutAt(GeoElement, Point, Duration), or showCalloutAt(Point, Point2D, Duration).

    Leader position - Side of the callout on which leader appears: TOP, BOTTOM, LEFT, RIGHT, ANY. See leaderPositionProperty().

    Background Color

    You can set the background color of the callout. See backgroundColorProperty().

    Styling

    Callout can be styled using CSS. See the individual properties for details.

    • Styles can be applied inline, as below:
       geoView.getCallout().setStyle("border-width:20; border-color: red;");
       
    • Styles can be applied using a stylesheet, on the .callout class, as below:
       scene.getStylesheets().add("myCallout.css"); // file path within the executable jar
       
       Content of stylesheet (myCallout.css):
       
       .callout {
         auto-adjust-width: true;
         background-color: red;
         border-color: black;
         border-width: 10;
         corner-radius: 16;
         detail-color: white;
         image-uri: "file:///C://JavaRuntimeTestData//icons//globe-16x16.png";
         leader-length: 24;
         leader-position: top;
         leader-width: 24;
         margin: 16;
         title-color: yellow;
       }

                                  Duration animateDuration)
        Shows the callout at a computed location based on a geo element.
        Parameters:
        geoElement - geo element to calculate the callout location
        interactionLocation - if specified, the computed location will be the geometry's nearest point of this target location; can be null in which case the computed location will be based on geometry alone
        animateDuration - duration of animation. If the Node.opacityProperty() is bounded, then the animation is disabled
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if geoElement is null or if the geoElement geometry's spatial reference is null
        RuntimeException - if opacity property is bounded

      • showCalloutAt

        public void showCalloutAt​(Point locationOnMap,
                                  Point2D screenOffset,
                                  Duration animateDuration)
        Shows the callout at the given map location with the given offset in device-independent pixels (dp).
        Parameters:
        locationOnMap - the Point at which to display the callout. This is in the map's coordinates.
        screenOffset - an offset in device-independent pixels (dp) to apply to the callout
        animateDuration - duration of animation. If the Node.opacityProperty() is bounded, then the animation is disabled
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if any input is null or if the spatial reference of locationOnMap is null
        RuntimeException - if opacity property is bounded
