Symbol3D is the base class for all 3D symbols. It is used to render 2D Point, Polyline, and Polygon features in a FeatureLayer and 3D mesh features in a SceneLayer. All 3D symbols must be used in a SceneView instance; there is no support for 3D rendering in MapViews.

There are five types of 3D symbols. Four of them correspond with a different feature geometry type. The fifth, LabelSymbol3D, may be applied to any geometry type. See the table below to learn about which symbol types are supported for each geometry type.

Geometry type Valid symbol types
Point PointSymbol3D, LabelSymbol3D
Polyline LineSymbol3D, LabelSymbol3D
Polygon PolygonSymbol3D, LabelSymbol3D
Mesh MeshSymbol3D, LabelSymbol3D

All 3D symbols have a symbolLayers property, which is an array of Symbol3DLayers that define the appearance of the symbol. All symbols must have at least one symbol layer added to the symbolLayers property. The Symbol3D object is a container that holds multiple symbol layers that determine the appearance of the symbol. One layer may be an outline, another the fill, etc. The relationship of symbol layers to symbol is similar to the relationship of operational layers to a Map. There are various types of symbol layers that may be used based on the symbol type and geometry of the features. See Symbol3DLayer to learn more about symbol layers.

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

styleOrigin StyleOrigin

The origin of the style from which the symbol was originally referenced. A reference to the style origin can be either by styleName or by styleUrl (but not both). This information is part of the WebScene persistence model and may be used to understand where a symbol was originally sourced from. It does not affect actual appearance or rendering of the symbol.

Autocasts from Object[]

A Collection of Symbol3DLayer objects used to visualize the graphic or feature. Individual symbol layers may be autocast as objects and specified using the type property.

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.

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
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.25

Returns true if a named group of handles exist.

Parameter
groupKey *
optional

A group key.

Returns
Type Description
Boolean Returns true if a named group of handles exist.
Example
// Remove a named group of handles if they 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.

Example
obj.removeHandles(); // removes handles from default group

obj.removeHandles("handle-group");
obj.removeHandles("other-handle-group");
toJSON(){Object}inherited

Converts an instance of this class to its ArcGIS portal JSON representation. See the Using fromJSON() guide topic for more information.

Returns
Type Description
Object The ArcGIS portal JSON representation of an instance of this class.
