Class: esri/widgets/SizeSlider
Inheritance: SizeSlider Accessor
Since: ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.2

The SizeSlider is a widget intended for authoring and exploring data-driven visualizations in a FeatureLayer or SceneLayer using the size of marker symbols or 3D object symbol layers. To display properly, this slider requires a size visual variable and statistics object. Other optional properties may be used including adding a histogram. Most of the various options that affect the UI of the slider are labeled in the image below.

sm-size-slider

This slider has three events. The most commonly used event is likely the handle-value-change event. Use this event to update the renderer when the user slides handles to new positions.

Constructors

new SizeSlider(properties)

Parameter:
properties Object
optional

See the properties for a list of all the properties that may be passed into the constructor.

Example:
// Typical usage
var slider = new SizeSlider({
  statistics: stats,  // object generated from summaryStatistics()
  visualVariable: sizeVV,  // size visual variable generated from a sizeRendererCreator method
}, "sliderDiv");

Property Details

The ID or node representing the DOM element containing the widget.

Note that once set, this property cannot be modified afterwards.

declaredClassStringreadonly inherited

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

handlesVisibleBoolean

Indicates whether to show the handles of the slider that may be dragged by the user. See the image in the class description to see where handles are typically placed.

Default Value: true

The histogram associated with the data represented on the slider. This may be generated using the histogram statistics function.

See also:
Example:
histogram({
  layer: featureLayer,
  field: "fieldName"
}).then(function(histogram){
  // set the histogram to the slider
  slider.histogram = histogram;
});

histogramVisibleBoolean

Indicates whether to show the histogram in the slider UI. See the image in the class description to see where the histogram is typically placed.

Default Value: true

histogramWidthNumber

The width of the histogram in pixels.

Default Value: 100

labelsVisibleBoolean

Indicates whether to show labels in the slider UI. See the image in the class description to see where labels are typically placed.

Default Value: true

maxSizeNumberreadonly

The size in points or pixels with which features will be represented at or above the maxValue.

maxValueNumber

The maximum value or upper bound of the slider. This value overrides the max property of the statistics, but may not be smaller than the upper value of the values array.

This property may be set programmatically or by the user in the widget's UI.

Example:
slider.maxValue = 150;

minSizeNumberreadonly

The size in points or pixels with which features will be represented at or below the minValue.

minValueNumber

The minimum value or lower bound of the slider. This value overrides the min property of the statistics, but may not be greater than the lower value of the values array.

This property may be set programmatically or by the user in the widget's UI.

Example:
slider.minValue = 0.15;

statisticsObject

The summary statistics of the data represented in the slider. This is an object that may be generated from the summaryStatistics statistics function. The min and max values in this object determine the minValue and maxValue of the slider if values for those properties are not already provided.

Properties:
avg Number
optional

The average of all data values represented in the size visual variable.

max Number

The maximum of all data values represented in the size visual variable.

min Number

The minimum of all data values represented in the size visual variable.

Example:
sizeRendererCreator.createVisualVariable({
  layer: featureLayer,
  field: "fieldName",
  basemap: map.basemap
}).then(function(response){
  // set the statistics to the slider
  slider.statistics = statistics;
});

statisticsVisibleBoolean

Indicates whether to show the average value of features in the dataset in the slider UI. See the image in the class description to see where this symbol is typically placed. Hover over this symbol to view the average in the tooltip.

Default Value: true
Since: ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.5

The symbol on the slider representing the features in the view. This symbol type should match the symbol type of the appropriate features. This can be an instance of SimpleMarkerSymbol, which is the default value, or SimpleLineSymbol.

ticksVisibleBoolean

Indicates whether to show tick marks next to the slider handles. See the image in the class description to see where ticks are typically placed.

Default Value: true

valuesNumber[]readonly

Represents the data values corresponding to the handles on the slider. It is an array of numbers indicating the minDataValue and the maxDataValue of the visual variable represented by the slider.

visibleBoolean

Indicates whether the widget is visible.

Default Value: true
Example:
// Hides the widget in the view
widget.visible = false;

visualVariableSizeVisualVariable

The size visual variable represented by the slider. This must be set initially on the slider for it to render in the view. This may be created manually (see snippet below) or generated from the sizeRendererCreator helper methods. A new size visual variable is created each time the user slides handles or changes the minValue or the maxValue.

Example:
slider.visualVariable = {
  type: "size",
  field: "count",
  minSize: "6px",
  maxSize: "50px",
  minDataValue: 0,
  maxDataValue: 100
};

Fires on each handle value change (on slide) and change to the minValue or maxValue of the slider.

Example:

  var renderer = layer.renderer.clone();
  renderer.visualVariables = [ slider.visualVariable ];
  layer.renderer = renderer;
});

Fires on each change to the minValue or maxValue of the slider. This event is useful for updating the Legend when the upper and lower bounds of the stops are altered.

Example:
slider.on("data-value-change", function(){
  // execute your code here
});
