Query and click for info window


This sample shows how to configure a query task for this simple workflow:

  1. User clicks a feature to highlight it.
  2. User clicks the feature again to see an InfoWindow with attribute information.

This sample queries USA states, hence the states layer of the ESRI_StateCityHighway_USA service is passed to the QueryTask constructor.

The first mouse click is captured by the following event listener:

dojo.connect(map, "onClick", executeQueryTask);

When the click occurs, the executeQueryTask function is called, which executes the query, followed by theshowResults function, which adds the graphic.

The second mouse click is captured by default when the user clicks a highlighted graphic. To format the InfoWindow, the application uses the InfoTemplate applied when the showResults function calls graphic.setInfoTemplate().
