AMD: require(["esri/popup/ElementExpressionInfo"], (ElementExpressionInfo) => { /* code goes here */ });
ESM: import ElementExpressionInfo from "@arcgis/core/popup/ElementExpressionInfo";
Class: esri/popup/ElementExpressionInfo
Inheritance: ElementExpressionInfo Accessor
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.22

Defines an Arcade expression used to create an ExpressionContent element in a PopupTemplate. The expression must evaluate to a dictionary, representing a TextContent, FieldsContent, or MediaContent popup element as defined in the Popup Element web map specification.

This expression may access data values from the feature, its layer, or other layers in the map or datastore with the $feature, $layer, $map, and $datastore profile variables. See the Popup Element Arcade Profile specification for more information and examples of valid return dictionaries.

Method Details

addHandles(handleOrHandles, groupKey)inherited
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.25

Adds one or more handles which are to be tied to the lifecycle of the object. The handles will be removed when the object is destroyed.

// Manually manage handles
const handle = reactiveUtils.when(
  () => !view.updating,
  () => {
    wkidSelect.disabled = false;
  },
  { once: true }
);

// Handle gets removed when the object is destroyed.
this.addHandles(handle);
Parameters
handleOrHandles WatchHandle|WatchHandle[]

Handles marked for removal once the object is destroyed.

groupKey *
optional

Key identifying the group to which the handles should be added. All the handles in the group can later be removed with Accessor.removeHandles(). If no key is provided the handles are added to a default group.

Creates a deep clone of the ElementExpressionInfo instance.

Returns
Type Description
ElementExpressionInfo A deep clone of the ElementExpressionInfo instance.
fromJSON(json){*}static

Creates a new instance of this class and initializes it with values from a JSON object generated from an ArcGIS product. The object passed into the input json parameter often comes from a response to a query operation in the REST API or a toJSON() method from another ArcGIS product. See the Using fromJSON() topic in the Guide for details and examples of when and how to use this function.

Parameter
json Object

A JSON representation of the instance in the ArcGIS format. See the ArcGIS REST API documentation for examples of the structure of various input JSON objects.

Returns
Type Description
* Returns a new instance of this class.
hasHandles(groupKey){Boolean}inherited

groupKey *
optional

A group key.

Returns
Type Description
Boolean Returns true if a named group of handles exist.

if (obj.hasHandles("watch-view-updates")) {
  obj.removeHandles("watch-view-updates");
}
removeHandles(groupKey)inherited
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.25

Removes a group of handles owned by the object.

Parameter
groupKey *
optional

A group key or an array or collection of group keys to remove.
