Multiple Query Results


This sample shows one way you can handle queries on overlapping polygons. Click an oil or gas field to see it highlighted on the map. If you click just one feature, you can click again to seen an InfoWindow with some attributes. If you happen to click overlapping features, you will see an InfoWindow that will help you pick which feature you want to see information about on your next click.

Notice that this sample uses an InfoTemplate to define how the text in the InfoWindow is formatted. You can include the actual value of a certain attribute by using the syntax ${attributeName}. Example: ${PROD_GAS}.

The following code determines what happens depending on how many features the user clicks:

queryTask.execute(query, function(fset) {if (fset.features.length === 1) {showFeature(fset.features[0],evt);} else if (fset.features.length !== 0) {showFeatureSet(fset,evt);}});

If the user clicks one feature, the function showFeature is called. This function highlights the feature using a graphic with a SimpleFillSymbol. By default the InfoWindow is not displayed until the user clicks the highlighted feature again.

If the user clicks overlapping features, the function showFeatureSet is called. This function loops through each feature and adds its name and a hyperlink to an InfoWindow. The user can choose which feature to highlight using the resulting list of links. Then the user can display an InfoWindow by clicking the highlighted feature.

Note that the result of the query task is always a FeatureSet. In this sample, only one of the items in the FeatureSet (the only item) is passed to the showFeature function, whereas the entire FeatureSet is passed to the showFeatureSet function.
