ExpressionInfo

AMD: require(["esri/popup/ExpressionInfo"], (ExpressionInfo) => { /* code goes here */ });
ESM: import ExpressionInfo from "@arcgis/core/popup/ExpressionInfo";
Class: esri/popup/ExpressionInfo
Inheritance: ExpressionInfo Accessor
Since: ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.11

The ExpressionInfo class references Arcade expressions following the specification defined by the Arcade Popup Profile. Expressions must return a string or a number and 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.

Expression names are referenced in a layer's PopupTemplate and execute once a layer's popup is opened. The values display within the view's popup as if they are field values. They can be displayed in a table using the FieldInfo of the popupTemplate's content or referenced within a simple string.

Example
// Display a table in the popup's content referencing two values
// one from a field, and another returned from an Arcade expression
layer.popupTemplate = {
  title: "Population in {NAME}",
  content: [{
    type: "fields",
    fieldInfos: [{
      fieldName: "POP_2015",
      label: "Total population (2015)",
      format: {
        digitSeparator: true
      }
    }, {
      fieldName: "expression/per-asian"
    }]
  }]
};
