ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Java

Add Graphics with Renderer

Demonstrates how to add graphics to a graphics overlay and display them with a renderer. A renderer allows you to change the style of all graphics in an overlay by only changing one copy of the symbol. A renderer will only effect graphics that do not specify their own symbol.

How it works

To show a Graphic in a GraphicsOverlay using a renderer:

  1. Create a GraphicsOverlay and add it to the MapView.
  2. Create a Graphic, specifying only its geometry
  3. Create a single Symbol such as a SimpleMarkerSymbol.
  4. Create a renderer with the symbol such as new SimpleRenderer(symbol).
  5. Set the renderer on the graphics overlay with graphicsOverlay.setRenderer(renderer).
