Load query results and show on click


This sample performs a query task and loads the results before you begin interacting with the map. This allows you to click any county and immediately see an info window.

The QueryTask constructor takes the URL of the layer to be queried, namely the counties layer (index number 3) of the ESRI_Census_USA service on the ESRI sample server. Notice that this is not the same service that the map uses.

The query's where clause limits the results to counties in South Carolina. Also notice that returnGeometry is set to true so that the features can be displayed on the map.

//build query filter
var query = new esri.tasks.Query();
.returnGeometry = true;
.outFields = ["NAME", "POP2000", "POP2007", "POP00_SQMI", "POP07_SQMI"];
.where = "STATE_NAME = 'South Carolina'";

The InfoTemplate defines how the attribute information will be formatted in the InfoWindow. Notice that you can use HTML in the info template content. Also, you can use the syntax ${fieldName} to show the value of a field for a given record. Example: ${POP2000}.

There's no code to explicitly show the InfoWindow because the default behavior of a graphic is to display an InfoWindow when clicked. However, you do have to call graphic.setInfoTemplate() in order to apply your template to the InfoWindow. This method is called for each graphic after the query task has completed.
