Method Details

addResolvingPromise(promiseToLoad){Promise}inherited

Adds a promise to the layer's loadable chain. This is typically used in the load() method to ensure that all loadable resources required for the layer to function are loaded prior to this layer resolving and becoming loaded.

Parameter:
promiseToLoad Promise

A promise that must resolve for the layer to resolve and move from the loading status to being loaded.

Returns:
TypeDescription
PromiseResolves when the given promise resolves.
See also:
Example:
// The requiredLayer must load() prior to the MyCustomTileLayer
// resolving and moving to the "loaded" status.
var MyCustomTileLayer = BaseTileLayer.createSubclass({
  load: function() {
    var promise = this.requiredLayer.load();
    this.addResolvingPromise(promise);
  }
});
cancelLoad()inherited

Cancels a load() operation if it is already in progress.

createLayerView(view, options)inherited

Called by the views, such as MapView and SceneView, when the layer is added to the Map.layers collection and a layer view must be created for it. This method is used internally and there is no use case for invoking it directly.

Parameters:
view *

The parent view.

options Object
optional

An object specifying additional options. See the object specification table below for the required properties of this object.

Specification:
optional

A signal to abort the creation of the layerview.

See also:
emit(type, event){Boolean}inherited

Emits an event on the instance. This method should only be used when creating subclasses of this class.

Parameters:
type String

The name of the event.

event Object
optional

The event payload.

Returns:
TypeDescription
Booleantrue if a listener was notified
fetchAttributionData(){Promise<Object>}inherited

Returns:
TypeDescription
Promise<Object>Resolves to an object containing custom attribution data for the layer.
fetchTile(level, row, col, options){Promise<(HTMLImageElement|HTMLCanvasElement)>}inherited

This method fetches a tile for the given level, row and column present in the view. Override this method if the data or image returned from the server needs to be processed before it can be displayed.

Parameters:
Specification:
level Number

Level of detail of the tile to fetch. This value is provided by LayerView.

row Number

The row (y) position of the tile fetch. This value is provided by LayerView.

options Object
optional

Optional settings for the tile request. The options have the following properties.

Specification:
timestamp Boolean
optional

Number to append to the tile request to prevent fetching the tile from the browser cache.

optional

An AbortSignal to abort the request. When overriding fetchTile, signal should be handled, for example by passing it on to request or by aborting pending operations. An aborted call to fetchTile should reject its returned promise with an instance of Error.

Returns:
TypeDescription
Promise<(HTMLImageElement|HTMLCanvasElement)>Returns a promise that resolves to an HTMLImageElement or HTMLCanvasElement.
See also:
Example:
// Process the image returned from the server before
// it is displayed.
fetchTile: function (level, row, col, options) {
  // call getTileUrl method to construct the URL for
  // the image for the given level, row and col
  var url = this.getTileUrl(level, row, col);

  // request for the tile based on the generated url.
  // the signal option ensures that obsolete requests are aborted.
  return esriRequest(url, {
    responseType: "image",
    signal: options && options.signal
  })
  .then(function (response) {
    // get the image from the response

    var height = this.tileInfo.size[0];

    var canvas = document.createElement("canvas");
    canvas.width = width;
    canvas.height = height;
    var context = canvas.getContext("2d");

    // tint is a custom property of this layer
    // Apply the tint color provided by the application
    // to the canvas
    if (this.tint) {
      context.fillStyle = this.tint.toCss();
      context.fillRect(0, 0, width, height);

      // The pixels of the top layer are multiplied by the corresponding
      // pixel of the bottom layer. A darker picture is the result.

load(signal){Promise}inherited

Loads the resources referenced by this class. This method automatically executes for a View and all of the resources it references in Map if the view is constructed with a map instance.

This method must be called by the developer when accessing a resource that will not be loaded in a View.

It's possible to provide a signal to stop being interested into a Loadable instance load status. When the signal is aborted, the instance does not stop its loading process, only cancelLoad can abort it.

Parameter:
optional

Signal object that can be used to abort the asynchronous task. The returned promise will be rejected with an Error named AbortError when an abort is signaled. See also AbortController for more information on how to construct a controller that can be used to deliver abort signals.

Returns:
TypeDescription
PromiseResolves when the resources have loaded.
on(type, listener){Object}inherited

Registers an event handler on the instance. Call this method to hook an event with a listener.

Parameters:

A event type, or an array of event types, to listen for.

listener Function

The function to call when the event is fired.

Returns:
TypeDescription
ObjectReturns an event handler with a remove() method that can be called to stop listening for the event(s).
PropertyTypeDescription
removeFunctionWhen called, removes the listener from the event.
Example:
view.on("click", function(event){
  // event is the event handle returned after the event fires.
  console.log(event.mapPoint);
});
refresh()inherited

Fetches all the data for the layer.

when(callback, errback){Promise}inherited

when() may be leveraged once an instance of the class is created. This method takes two input parameters: a callback function and an errback function. The callback executes when the instance of the class loads. The errback executes if the instance of the class fails to load.

Parameters:
callback Function
optional

The function to call when the promise resolves.

errback Function
optional

The function to execute when the promise fails.

Returns:
TypeDescription
PromiseReturns a new promise for the result of callback that may be used to chain additional functions.
Example:
// Although this example uses MapView, any class instance that is a promise may use then() in the same way
var view = new MapView();
view.when(function(){
  // This function will execute once the promise is resolved
}, function(error){
  // This function will execute if the promise is rejected due to an error
});
