Class LocatorTask

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    RemoteResource, Loadable

    public final class LocatorTask
    extends Object
    implements Loadable, RemoteResource
    A task used to convert an address to a point (geocode) or vice-versa (reverse geocode). An address includes any type of information that distinguishes a place. Also allows address suggestions to be generated character-by-character as a user types.

    A LocatorTask can be created for an online geocoding service or as an offline locator using data stored locally.

    • Constructor Detail

      • LocatorTask

        public LocatorTask​(String uri)
        Constructs an online or offline LocatorTask.

        An online LocatorTask uses an online geocoding service and its URI consists of the web address of the service, for example:

         LocatorTask loc = new LocatorTask("http://geocode.arcgis.com/arcgis/rest/services/World/GeocodeServer");
         

        An offline LocatorTask uses data stored locally and its URI consists of the absolute path to the ".loc" file, for example:

         LocatorTask loc = new LocatorTask("/data/locators/SanFranciscoLocator.loc");
         
        Parameters:
        uri - the URI of an online geocoding service or a ".loc" file in local storage
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if uri is null or empty

      • getLoadStatus

        public LoadStatus getLoadStatus()
        Description copied from interface: Loadable
        Returns the LoadStatus of the loadable resource.
        Specified by:
        getLoadStatus in interface Loadable
        Returns:
        the LoadStatus of the loadable resource
      • getLoadError

        public ArcGISRuntimeException getLoadError()
        Description copied from interface: Loadable
        Returns the most recent error that was encountered when the loadable resource transitioned to the LoadStatus.FAILED_TO_LOAD state, either due to calling loadAsync or retryLoadAsync.

        If the resource subsequently transitions to LoadStatus.LOADED, for example if a call to retryLoadAsync completes successfully, the error is cleared out.

        Specified by:
        getLoadError in interface Loadable
        Returns:
        the most recent error that was encountered when the loadable resource transitioned to the LoadStatus.FAILED_TO_LOAD state.
      • cancelLoad

        public void cancelLoad()
        Description copied from interface: Loadable
        Cancels a pending load operation.

        A load operation that is in progress (LoadStatus.LOADING state) can be cancelled by calling this method and the resource will transition from LoadStatus.LOADING to LoadStatus.FAILED_TO_LOAD state. If the load operation was successfully cancelled a CancellationException will be returned from Loadable.getLoadError().

        Cancellation should be used carefully because all enqueued done loading listeners for that resource instance will get invoked with an error stating that the operation was cancelled. Thus, one component in the application can cancel the load operation initiated by other components.

        This method does nothing if the resource is not in LoadStatus.LOADING state.

        Specified by:
        cancelLoad in interface Loadable
      • loadAsync

        public void loadAsync()
        Description copied from interface: Loadable
        Loads the metadata of the loadable resource asynchronously.

        The load status changes from LoadStatus.NOT_LOADED to LoadStatus.LOADING. A listener can be added via Loadable.addDoneLoadingListener(java.lang.Runnable) that is invoked upon completion of the asynchronous load operation.

        If the load operation completes successfully, the load status will be LoadStatus.LOADED, which means the resource has loaded its metadata.

        If the load operation failed, the load status will be LoadStatus.FAILED_TO_LOAD and the error can be retrieved by calling Loadable.getLoadError().

        This method can be called concurrently and repeatedly, but only one attempt is ever made to perform the load operation. If a load operation is already in progress (LoadStatus.LOADING state) when loadAsync is called, it simply piggy-backs on the outstanding operation and the done loading listener added to the loadable resource is enqueued to be invoked when that operation completes. If the operation has already completed (LoadStatus.LOADED or LoadStatus.FAILED_TO_LOAD state) when loadAsync is called, the done loading listener is immediately invoked when added to the loadable resource.

        If a loadable resource has failed to load, calling loadAsync on it subsequently will not change its state. The done loading listener will be invoked immediately when added to the loadable resource. In order to retry loading the resource, Loadable.retryLoadAsync() needs to be used.

        A load operation that is in progress (LoadStatus.LOADING state) can be cancelled by calling Loadable.cancelLoad().

        Specified by:
        loadAsync in interface Loadable
      • retryLoadAsync

        public void retryLoadAsync()
        Description copied from interface: Loadable
        Tries to reload the metadata of the loadable resource asynchronously, but only if the resource failed to load previously (LoadStatus.FAILED_TO_LOAD state) or wasn't loaded to begin with ( LoadStatus.NOT_LOADED state).

        For more details on the load process see Loadable.loadAsync().

        Specified by:
        retryLoadAsync in interface Loadable
      • addDoneLoadingListener

        public void addDoneLoadingListener​(Runnable listener)
        Description copied from interface: Loadable
        Adds a listener to the loadable resource that is invoked when loading has completed.

        The listener may be added at any point, whether the loadable resource has already completed loading or not.

        • For resources that are not loaded when the listener is added (LoadStatus is NOT_LOADED or LOADING): When the resource completes loading, the listener will be invoked on the UI thread if it is added from the UI thread, otherwise it is not guaranteed on which thread the listener is invoked.
        • For resources that are already loaded when the listener is added (LoadStatus is LOADED or FAILED_TO_LOAD): The listener will be called immediately, on the current thread.

        Alternatively, to be notified when there is any change in the load status, use the Loadable.addLoadStatusChangedListener(LoadStatusChangedListener) method instead.

        Specified by:
        addDoneLoadingListener in interface Loadable
        Parameters:
        listener - a Runnable that is invoked upon completion of the load operation
      • removeDoneLoadingListener

        public boolean removeDoneLoadingListener​(Runnable listener)
        Description copied from interface: Loadable
        Removes a done loading listener from the loadable resource.
        Specified by:
        removeDoneLoadingListener in interface Loadable
        Parameters:
        listener - the listener to be removed
        Returns:
        true if the listener was removed, otherwise false
      • addLoadStatusChangedListener

        public void addLoadStatusChangedListener​(LoadStatusChangedListener listener)
        Description copied from interface: Loadable
        Adds a LoadStatusChangedListener to the loadable resource that is invoked whenever the load status changes.

        Adding this listener on the UI thread will cause it to be invoked on the UI thread, otherwise it is not guaranteed on which thread the listener is invoked.

        The listener will not be called if added to a loadable resource that has already completed loading. To be notified when a loadable resource has completed loading, including if the resource is already loaded when the listener is added, use the Loadable.addDoneLoadingListener(Runnable) method.

        Specified by:
        addLoadStatusChangedListener in interface Loadable
        Parameters:
        listener - the LoadStatusChangedListener to be added
      • removeLoadStatusChangedListener

        public boolean removeLoadStatusChangedListener​(LoadStatusChangedListener listener)
        Description copied from interface: Loadable
        Removes a LoadStatusChangedListener from the loadable resource.
        Specified by:
        removeLoadStatusChangedListener in interface Loadable
        Parameters:
        listener - the LoadStatusChangedListener to be removed
        Returns:
        true if the listener was removed, otherwise false
