PictureMarkerSymbol renders Point graphics in either a 2D MapView or 3D SceneView using an image. A url must point to a valid image. PictureMarkerSymbols may be applied to point features in a FeatureLayer or individual graphics. The image below depicts a FeatureLayer whose point features are styled with a PictureMarkerSymbol.

Default Value:0
declaredClass Stringreadonly inherited
Since: ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.7

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

Autocasts from Number|String

The height of the image in points. This value may be autocast with a string expressing size in points or pixels (e.g. 12px).

The maximum allowed height of a picture marker symbol is 200px. If you set any value higher than 200px, then the image will be scaled down to a height of 200px while preserving the aspect ratio of the image.

Default Value:12
Examples:
// height in points
symbol.height = 14;
// height in pixels
symbol.height = "20px";
// height in points
symbol.height = "14pt";
type Stringreadonly

The symbol type.

For PictureMarkerSymbol the type is always "picture-marker".

url String

The URL to an image or SVG document. To avoid CORS issues with this symbol, do one of the following:

Known Limitations

  • SVG documents must include a definition for width and height to load properly in Firefox.
  • Animated GIF and PNG images are not supported in SceneView. See the Custom WebGL layer view sample to learn how to accomplish this using WebGL.
  • Animated SVG images are currently not supported.
Examples:
symbol.url = "cat-1-hurricane.png";
// render SVG document as a PictureMarkerSymbol
symbol.url = "logo.svg";
Autocasts from Number|String

The width of the image in points. This value may be autocast with a string expressing size in points or pixels (e.g. 12px).

The maximum allowed width of a picture marker symbol is 200px. If you set any value higher than 200px, then the image will be scaled down to a width of 200px while preserving the aspect ratio of the image.

// height in points
symbol.height = 14;
// height in pixels
symbol.height = "20px";
// height in points
symbol.height = "14pt";
Autocasts from Number|String

The offset on the x-axis in points. This value may be autocast with a string expressing size in points or pixels (e.g. 12px).

Default Value:0
Examples:
