GraphicsLayerView

Class: esri/views/layers/GraphicsLayerView
Inheritance: GraphicsLayerView LayerView Accessor
Since: ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.4

Represents the LayerView of a GraphicsLayer after it has been added to a Map in either a MapView or SceneView.

The GraphicsLayerView is responsible for rendering a GraphicsLayer's features as graphics in the View. The methods in the GraphicsLayerView provide developers with the ability to query graphics in the view. See the code snippets in the methods below for examples of how to access client-side graphics from the view.

Method Details

always(callbackOrErrback){Promise}inherited
Deprecated
  • Deprecated at 4.7. This method will be removed at 4.8.

Deprecated at 4.7. always() may be used to execute a function if creating an instance of the class is rejected or resolved. The input function will always execute no matter the response.

Parameter:
callbackOrErrback Function
optional

The function to execute when creating an instance of the class is rejected or resolved.

Returns:
TypeDescription
PromiseReturns a new promise for the result of callbackOrErrback.
highlight(target){Object}

Highlights the given feature(s).

Known Limitations

Currently the highlight method is only supported in a SceneView.

Parameter:
optional

The feature(s) to highlight. When passing a graphic or array of graphics, each feature must have a valid objectID. You may alternatively pass one or more objectIDs as a single number or an array.

Returns:
TypeDescription
ObjectReturns a highlight handler with a remove() method that can be called to remove the highlight.
PropertyTypeDescription
removeFunctionWhen called, removes the highlight of the selected graphics.
See also:
Example:
// highlight feature on pointer-move
view.on("pointer-move", function(event){
  view.hitTest(event).then(function(response){
    if (response.results.length) {
      var graphic = response.results.filter(function (result) {
        return result.graphic.layer === myLayer;
      })[0].graphic;

     view.whenLayerView(graphic.layer).then(function(lyrView){
       lyrView.highlight(graphic);
     });
    }
  });
});
isFulfilled(){Boolean}inherited

isFulfilled() may be used to verify if creating an instance of the class is fulfilled (either resolved or rejected). If it is fulfilled, true will be returned.

Returns:
TypeDescription
BooleanIndicates whether creating an instance of the class has been fulfilled (either resolved or rejected).
isRejected(){Boolean}inherited

isRejected() may be used to verify if creating an instance of the class is rejected. If it is rejected, true will be returned.

Returns:
TypeDescription
BooleanIndicates whether creating an instance of the class has been rejected.
isResolved(){Boolean}inherited

isResolved() may be used to verify if creating an instance of the class is resolved. If it is resolved, true will be returned.

Returns:
TypeDescription
BooleanIndicates whether creating an instance of the class has been resolved.
otherwise(errback){Promise}inherited
Deprecated
  • Deprecated at 4.7. This method will be removed at 4.8.

Deprecated at 4.7. Use otherwise() to call a function once creating an instance of the class is rejected.

Parameter:
errback Function
optional

The function to execute when creating an instance of the class fails.

Returns:
TypeDescription
PromiseReturns a new promise for the result of errback.
queryGraphics(){Promise<Graphic[]>}

Returns all graphics available for drawing in the layer view as an array of Graphic[].

Returns:
TypeDescription
Promise<Graphic[]>When resolved, an array of Graphic[] is returned.
Example:
var lyr = new GraphicsLayer();

// returns all the graphics from the layer view
view.whenLayerView(lyr).then(function(lyrView){
  lyrView.watch("updating", function(val){
    if(!val){  // wait for the layer view to finish updating
      lyrView.queryGraphics().then(function(results){
        console.log(results);  // prints the array of client-side graphics to the console
      });
    }
  });
});
when(callback, errback){Promise}inherited
Since: ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.6

when() may be leveraged once an instance of the class is created. This method takes two input parameters: a callback function and an errback function. The callback executes when the instance of the class loads. The errback executes if the instance of the class fails to load.

Parameters:
callback Function
optional

The function to call when the promise resolves.

errback Function
optional

The function to execute when the promise fails.

Returns:
TypeDescription
PromiseReturns a new promise for the result of callback that may be used to chain additional functions.
Example:
// Although this example uses MapView, any class instance that is a promise may use then() in the same way
var view = new MapView();
view.when(function(){
  // This function will execute once the promise is resolved
}, function(error){
  // This function will execute if the promise is rejected due to an error
});
