The ElevationProfile widget is used to generate and display an elevation profile from an input path. In this sample the input path is interactively created by drawing a single- or multi-segment line. The widget has the profiles property configured such that it displays two elevation profile lines, one for ground, one for the buildings.

const elevationProfile = new ElevationProfile({
  view: view,
  profiles: [{
    type: "ground" // first profile line samples the ground elevation
  }, {
    type: "view" // second profile line samples the view and shows building profiles
  // hide the select button
  // this button can be displayed when there are polylines in the
  // scene to select and display the elevation profile for
  visibleElements: {
    selectButton: false

For more usage and configuration options see ElevationProfile in the API Reference.
