FeatureTable - Formatting


This sample shows how to use different properties of FeatureTable class to format the look and feel of the table and its data. User can update the attributes of the existing features displayed in the table. The table also displays attachments.

  • FeatureTable.editableproperty is set to true. User can update existing attributes in the table.
  • FeatureTable.showAttachments property is set to true. User can view and remove existing attachments, or add new attachments to existing features.
  • FeatureTable.syncSelection property is set to true. This enables selection from the table to the map.
  • FeatureTable.zoomToSelection property is set to true. The map will zoom to the selected feature on the map as user selects a row in the table.
  • FeatureTable.gridOptions property is used to set the underlying grid properties. In this case, the table will allow users to select all rows using ctrl + A command and select text in the table.
  • FeatureTable.dateOptions property is used to display date fields using the specified format.
  • FeatureTable.outFields property controls the order of the fields displayed in the table. If you don't list given fields in the outfields property then these fields will be hidden when the table initializes.
  • FeatureTable.fieldInfos property will let you format the specified fields to meet your needs. You can change editable, alias property of the field. You can also format text, number, domain and subtypes using fieldInfos.format property.
