ESM: import CoordinateConversion from "@arcgis/core/widgets/CoordinateConversion";
Class: esri/widgets/CoordinateConversion
Inheritance: CoordinateConversion Widget Accessor
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.7

The CoordinateConversion widget provides a way to display user cursor position either as map coordinates or as any of several popular coordinate notations. Additionally, the widget provides a way to convert user input coordinates into a Point.

coordinate-conversion

Several common formats are included by default:

Additional formats can be created by a developer and made available through the widget.

For information about gaining full control of widget styles, see the Styling topic.

Property Details

The ID or node representing the DOM element containing the widget. This property can only be set once. The following examples are all valid use cases when working with widgets.

Examples
// Create the HTML div element programmatically at runtime and set to the widget's container
const basemapGallery = new BasemapGallery({
  view: view,
  container: document.createElement("div")
});

// Add the widget to the top-right corner of the view
view.ui.add(basemapGallery, {
  position: "top-right"
});
// Specify an already-defined HTML div element in the widget's container

const basemapGallery = new BasemapGallery({
  view: view,
  container: basemapGalleryDiv
});

// Add the widget to the top-right corner of the view
view.ui.add(basemapGallery, {
  position: "top-right"
});

// HTML markup
<body>
  <div id="viewDiv"></div>
  <div id="basemapGalleryDiv"></div>
</body>
// Specify the widget while adding to the view's UI
const basemapGallery = new BasemapGallery({
  view: view
});

// Add the widget to the top-right corner of the view
view.ui.add(basemapGallery, {
  position: "top-right"
});
conversions Collection<Conversion>

A Collection containing every Conversion that the widget is currently displaying.

Example
// conversions can be set with an array of strings where each string is a format's name
coordinateConversion.conversions = ["mgrs"];
currentLocation Pointreadonly

Describes the location of the coordinates currently displayed by the widget as a Point. Setting this property will update all conversions.

declaredClass Stringreadonly inherited

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

formats Collection<Format>

A Collection containing every Format that the widget is capable of displaying.

The default formats are basemap, dd, ddm, dms, mgrs, usng, utm, and xy.

Examples
// only show "xy" format
let ccWidget = new CoordinateConversion({
  view: view
});
const toRemove = ccWidget.formats.filter(format => format.name !== "xy");
ccWidget.formats.removeMany(toRemove);
view.ui.add(ccWidget, "bottom-left");
// show every format except "xy"
let ccWidget = new CoordinateConversion({
  view: view
});
const toRemove = ccWidget.formats.filter(format => format.name == "xy");
ccWidget.formats.removeMany(toRemove);
view.ui.add(ccWidget, "bottom-left");
goToOverride GoToOverride
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.8

This function provides the ability to override either the MapView goTo() or SceneView goTo() methods.

See also
Example
// The following snippet uses the Search widget but can be applied to any
// widgets that support the goToOverride property.
search.goToOverride = function(view, goToParams) {
  goToParams.options.duration = updatedDuration;
  return view.goTo(goToParams.target, goToParams.options);
};
headingLevel Number
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.20

Indicates the heading level to use for the coordinate input and coordinate settings headings. By default, these headings are rendered as level 4 headings (e.g. <h4>Input coordinate</h4>). Depending on the coordinate conversion widget's placement in your app, you may need to adjust this heading for proper semantics. This is important for meeting accessibility standards.

Default Value:4
Example
// coordinate conversion heading will render as an <h2>
coordinateConversion.headingLevel = 2;

The unique ID assigned to the widget when the widget is created. If not set by the developer, it will default to the container ID, or if that is not present then it will be automatically generated.

label String

The widget's default label.

This symbol is used to visualize the location currently described by the widget when capture mode is active.

mode String

Describes the current mode of the widget.

  • While in live mode, the widget will update as the cursor moves.
  • While in capture mode, the widget will update on mouse click and display a graphic marking the current location.

Possible Values:"live"|"capture"

Default Value:live
multipleConversions Boolean

If this property is set to true, multiple conversions can be displayed. For a simpler experience with only one conversion at a time, this property can be set to false.

Default Value:true
orientation String

Determines whether the widget should expand up or down. If set to auto the widget will be oriented based on its position in the view.

Possible Values:"auto"|"expand-up"|"expand-down"

Default Value:auto
storageEnabled Boolean
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.20

If this property is set to true, sessionStorage or localStorage (depending on storageType) will be used to hydrate and persist the CoordinateConversion widget's state.

Default Value:true
storageType String
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.23

This property determines whether sessionStorage or localStorage will be used to store widget state.

Possible Values:"session"|"local"

Default Value:"session"

A reference to the MapView or SceneView. Set this to link the widget to a specific view.

The view model for this widget. The view model contains the logic that controls the Coordinate Widget's behavior. See the CoordinateConversionViewModel class to access all properties and methods on the widget.

visible Boolean inherited

Indicates whether the widget is visible.

If false, the widget will no longer be rendered in the web document. This may affect the layout of other elements or widgets in the document. For example, if this widget is the first of three widgets associated to the upper right hand corner of the view UI, then the other widgets will reposition when this widget is made invisible. For more information, refer to the CSS display value of "none".

Default Value:true
Example
// Hides the widget in the view
widget.visible = false;
visibleElements VisibleElements
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.19

The visible elements that are displayed within the widget. This property provides the ability to turn individual elements of the widget's display on/off.

Example
coordinateWidget.visibleElements = {
  settingsButton: false,
  captureButton: false
};

Method Details

addHandles(handleOrHandles, groupKey)inherited
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.25

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.
