require(["esri/Graphic"], function(Graphic) { /* code goes here */ });
Class: esri/Graphic
Inheritance: Graphic Accessor
Since: ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.0

A Graphic is a vector representation of real world geographic phenomena. It can contain geometry, a symbol, and attributes. A Graphic is displayed in the GraphicsLayer.

To learn how to work with graphics, see the Intro to graphics tutorial.

var polyline = {
  type: "polyline",  // autocasts as new Polyline()
    paths: [
      [-111.30, 52.68],
      [-98, 49.5],
      [-93.94, 29.89]
    ]
};

var polylineSymbol = {
  type: "simple-line",  // autocasts as SimpleLineSymbol()
  color: [226, 119, 40],
  width: 4
};

var polylineAtt = {
  Name: "Keystone Pipeline",
  Owner: "TransCanada"
};

var polylineGraphic = new Graphic({
  geometry: polyline,
  symbol: polylineSymbol,
  attributes: polylineAtt
});

view.graphics.add(polyline);

attributesObject

Name-value pairs of fields and field values associated with the graphic.

Example:
var graphic = new Graphic();
graphic.attributes = {
  "name": "Spruce",
  "family": "Pinaceae",
  "count": 126
};

declaredClassStringreadonly inherited

The name of the class. The declared class name is formatted as esri.folder.className.

The geometry that defines the graphic's location.

Z-values defined in a geographic or metric coordinate system are expressed in meters. However, in local scenes that use a projected coordinate system, vertical units are assumed to be the same as the horizontal units specified by the service.

Example:
// First create a point geometry
var point = {
  type: "point",  // autocasts as new Point()
  longitude: -71.2643,
  latitude: 42.0909
};

// Create a symbol for drawing the point
var markerSymbol = {
  type: "simple-marker",  // autocasts as new SimpleMarkerSymbol()
  color: [226, 119, 40]
};

// Create a graphic and add the geometry and symbol to it
var pointGraphic = new Graphic({
  geometry: point,
  symbol: markerSymbol
});

If applicable, references the layer in which the graphic is stored.

popupTemplatePopupTemplate autocast

The template for displaying content in a Popup when the graphic is selected. The PopupTemplate may be used to access a graphic's attributes and display their values in the view's default popup. See the documentation for PopupTemplate for details on how to display attribute values in the popup.

As of version 4.5, if the popupTemplate is not defined on the Graphic, it will use the graphic layer popupTemplate.

The Symbol for the graphic. Choosing a symbol for a graphic depends on the View type (SceneView or MapView), and the geometry type of the graphic.

If the symbol is not specified for a graphic in a FeatureLayer, it displays using the symbol defined in the layer's renderer. Each graphic may have its own symbol specified when the parent layer is a GraphicsLayer.

Example:
view.on("click", function(event){
  var graphic = new Graphic({
    geometry: event.mapPoint,
    symbol: {
      type: "simple-marker",  // autocasts as new SimpleMarkerSymbol()
      color: "blue",
      size: 8,
      outline: {  // autocasts as new SimpleLineSymbol()
        width: 0.5,
        color: "darkblue"
      }
    }
  });
});
