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);
};

The widget's default CSS icon class.

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.

labelStringreadonly

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

The view model for this widget. This is a class that contains all the logic (properties and methods) that controls this widget's behavior. See the HomeViewModel class to access all properties and methods on the widget.

viewpointViewpoint

The Viewpoint, or point of view, to zoom to when going home. The initial value is determined a few different ways:

  • If no View is provided, the value is null.
  • If the View is ready, but the Viewpoint is not defined, the initial value of the Viewpoint is determined when the View became ready.
  • If the View is ready and the Viewpoint is defined by the user, the initial viewpoint value is the user-defined Viewpoint.
Example:
// Creates a viewpoint centered on the extent of a polygon geometry
var vp = new Viewpoint({
  targetGeometry: geom.extent
});

// Sets the model's viewpoint to the Viewpoint based on a polygon geometry
home.viewpoint = vp;

Method Details

classes(classNames){String}inherited
Since: ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.7

A utility method used for building the value for a widget's class property. This aids in simplifying CSS class setup.

Prior to version 4.7, there were various approaches towards setting CSS classes. These were dependant upon variables, such as whether the classes were:

  • a single static class,
  • multiple static classes, or
  • dynamic classes.

This helper method takes all of these approaches into account and simplifies it to use one single pattern to accommodate these multiple approaches.

Parameter:
classNames Array<(String|String[]|Object)>
repeatable

The class names.

Returns:
TypeDescription
StringThe computed class name.
See also:
Example:
// .tsx syntax showing how to set CSS classes while rendering the widget
render() {
  const dynamicIconClasses = {
    [CSS.myIcon]: this.showIcon,
    [CSS.greyIcon]: !this.showIcon
  };

  return (
    <div class={classes(CSS.root, CSS.mixin, dynamicIconClasses)} />
  );
}
destroy()inherited

Destroys the widget instance.

emit(type, event)inherited
Since: ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.5

Emits an event on the instance. This method should only be used when creating subclasses of this class.

Parameters:
type String

The name of the event.

event Object

The event payload.

go()

Animates the view to the initial Viewpoint of the view or the value of viewpoint.

See also:
hasEventListener(type){Boolean}inherited

Parameter:
type String

The name of the event.

Returns:
TypeDescription

on(type, listener){Object}inherited
