SimpleFillSymbol

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

SimpleFillSymbol is used for rendering 2D polygons in either a MapView or a SceneView. It can be filled with a solid color, or a pattern. In addition, the symbol can have an optional outline, which is defined by a SimpleLineSymbol.

SimpleFillSymbols may be applied to polygon features in a FeatureLayer or an individual Graphic.

Fill symbols may also be used to symbolize 2D polygon features in a 3D SceneView. However, it is recommended you use PolygonSymbol3D instead. The image below depicts a FeatureLayer whose graphics are styled with a SimpleFillSymbol.

Autocasts from Object|Number[]|String

The color of the symbol. This can be autocast with an array of rgb(a) values, named string, hex string or an hsl(a) string, an object with r, g, b, and a properties, or a Color object.

Default Value:[0, 0, 0, 0.25] - black, semitransparent
Examples:
// CSS color string
symbol.color = "dodgerblue";
// HEX string
symbol.color = "#33cc33";
// array of RGBA values
symbol.color = [51, 204, 51, 0.3];
// object with rgba properties
symbol.color = {
  r: 51,
  g: 51,
  b: 204,
  a: 0.7
};

clone(){SimpleFillSymbol}

Creates a deep clone of the symbol.

Returns:
Type Description
SimpleFillSymbol A deep clone of the object that invoked this method.
Example:
// Creates a deep clone of the graphic's symbol
var symLyr = graphic.symbol.clone();
fromJSON(json){*}static
