require(["esri/widgets/smartMapping/ColorSizeSlider"], function(ColorSizeSlider) { /* code goes here */ });
Class: esri/widgets/smartMapping/ColorSizeSlider
Inheritance: ColorSizeSlider SmartMappingSliderBase Widget Accessor
Since: ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.12

The ColorSizeSlider widget is intended for authoring and exploring data-driven visualizations in any layer that can be rendered with a ColorVariable and a SizeVariable. Both visual variables should be used to visualize the same data variable.

This slider and visualization style is designed specifically for 3D thematic visualizations where both size and color are used to visualize the same data variable in order to minimize confusion because of distortion in perception. For example, a visualization of extruded points may be difficult to understand if two features of similar sizes (and therefore data values) are located far apart from one another; the feature furthest from the Camera will appear smaller than the feature closer to the camera. The color variable can help the user understand that both features have similar values.

ColorSizeSlider with perspective

At a minimum you must set the min, max, and stops properties of the widget. The stops are used to render a color gradient on the track of the slider.

See the image below for a summary of the configurable options available on this slider.

ColorSizeSlider with annotations

The fromRendererResult method can be used to conveniently create this slider from the result of the createContinuousRenderer method.

const params = {
  layer: layer,
  basemap: map.basemap,
  valueExpression: "( $feature.POP_POVERTY / $feature.TOTPOP_CY ) * 100",
  view: view
};

let rendererResult = null;

univariateColorSizeRendererCreator
  .createContinuousRenderer(params)
  .then(function(response) {
    rendererResult = response;
    layer.renderer = response.renderer;

    return histogram({
      layer: layer,
      valueExpression: colorParams.valueExpression,
      view: view,
      numBins: 70
    });
  })
   .then(function(histogramResult) {
     const slider = ColorSizeSlider.fromRendererResult(rendererResult, histogramResult);
     slider.container = "slider";
   })
   .catch(function(error) {
     console.log("there was an error: ", error);
   });

This slider should be used to update the matching color and size visual variables in a layer's renderer. It is the responsibility of the app developer to set up event listeners on this slider that update these variables in the appropriate renderer.

// when the user slides the handle(s), update the renderer
// with the updated color stops

slider.on(["thumb-change", "thumb-drag"], function() {
  const renderer = layer.renderer.clone();
  renderer.visualVariables = slider.updateVisualVariables( renderer.visualVariables );
  layer.renderer = renderer;
});

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"
});
declaredClass Stringreadonly inherited

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

destroyed Boolean inherited

When true, this property indicates whether the widget has been destroyed.

histogramConfig HistogramConfig inherited

The Histogram associated with the data represented on the slider. The bins are typically generated using the histogram statistics function.

See also:
Example:
histogram({
  layer: featureLayer,
  field: "fieldName",
  numBins: 30
}).then(function(histogramResult){
  // set the histogram to the slider
  slider.histogramConfig = {
    bins: histogramResult.bins
  };
});

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 label displays when it is used within another widget, such as the Expand or LayerList widgets.

labelFormatFunction LabelFormatter inherited

A modified version of Slider.labelFormatFunction, which is a custom function used to format labels on the thumbs, min, max, and average values. Overrides the default label formatter. This function also supports date formatting.

Example:
// For thumb values, rounds each label to whole numbers
slider.labelFormatFunction = function(value, type) {
  return (type === "value-change") ? value.toFixed(0): value;
}

The maximum value or upper bound of the slider. If the largest slider value in the constructor is greater than the max set in this property, then the max will update to match the largest slider value.

Example:
slider.max = 150;

The minimum value or lower bound of the slider. If the smallest slider value in the constructor is greater than the min set in this property, then the min will update to match the smallest slider value.

Example:
slider.min = -150;
state Stringreadonly inherited

The state of the view model.

Possible Values:"ready"|"disabled"

The colors and sizes corresponding with data values in the ColorVariable and SizeVariable of the renderer associated with the slider.

Use the fromRendererResult() method to conveniently construct these stops from a renderer generated from the univariateColorSize smart mapping module.

Use updateVisualVariables() to update the renderer's visual variables with the values matching the slider thumb positions.

See also:
Example:
slider.stops = [
  { value: 25, color: "white", size: 1000 },
  { value: 75, color: "dodgerblue", size: 100000 }
];

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

zoomOptions Object inherited

Zooms the slider track to the bounds provided in this property. When min and/or max zoom values are provided, the absolute min and max slider values are preserved and rendered at their typical positions on the slider. However, the slider track itself is zoomed so that thumbs cannot be moved above or below the provided min and max zoomed values.

When a slider is in a zoomed state, the zoomed ends of the track will appear jagged. In the image below, notice how the top thumb cannot be moved past the zoom max of 31 even though the slider max is 200.

slider-zoom

To exit a zoomed state, the user can click the jagged line or the developer can set the zoomOptions to null. It is up to the developer to provide a UI option for end users to enable zooming on the slider.

Setting the zoomOptions is useful when the slider is tied to heavily skewed datasets where the histogram renders only one or two bars because of outliers.

slider-not-zoomed

You can remove the influence of outliers by zooming the slider and regenerating a histogram based on the zoomed min and max. This will provide a better view of the data and make the slider more useful to the end user.

Properties:
min Number
optional

The lower bound of the zoom.

max Number
optional

The upper bound of the zoom.

Examples:
// zooms the slider to so thumbs can only be moved
// to positions between the values of 10 and 25 while
// maintaining the slider's absolute minimum and
// maximum values
slider.zoomOptions = {
  min: 10,
  max: 25
};
// disables zooming on the slider
slider.zoomOptions = null;
// zooms the slider to so thumbs can only be moved
// to positions above the value of 10, while maintaining
// the slider's absolute minimum value
slider.zoomOptions = {
  min: 10
};
// zooms the slider to so thumbs can only be moved
// to positions below the value of 25, while maintaining
// the slider's absolute maximum value
slider.zoomOptions = {
  max: 25
};
// zooms the slider to the handle positions
// with some padding
document.getElementById("zoomInButton").onclick = function() {
  const lowerThumb = slider.values[0];
  const upperThumb = slider.values[1];

  const range = upperThumb - lowerThumb;
  const padding = range * 0.3;

  const zoomMin = (lowerThumb - padding) > slider.min ? (lowerThumb - padding) : slider.min;
  const zoomMax = (upperThumb + padding) < slider.max ? (upperThumb + padding) : slider.max;

  slider.set({ zoomOptions: { min: zoomMin, max: zoomMax } });
};
