Read a geopackage


This sample demonstrates how to add, remove or reorder operational layers in a map using a geopackage. The map in the sample app starts out empty, with just a basemap. Two lists are shown over the map: A list of layers in the map (initially empty) and a list of layers not in the map. The layers available are read from the geopackage. To add a layer to the map, simply click it in the Layers not in the map list. To remove a layer from the map, tap the trash can for the layer in the Layers in the map list and the layer will be returned to the Layers not in the map list. You can drag to reorder layers in the Layers in the map list.

How it works

AGSMap has a property called operationalLayers which is a list of AGSLayer. To add a layer the app uses the add() method on the list (AGSList). To remove a layer it uses the remove() method. To re-order layers, the app uses the remove() method and the insert(at:) method to re-add the layer at the appropriate index.
