WmtsLayer Class
A layer that conforms to the Web Map Tiling Service (WMTS) Open GIS Consortium (OGC) standard. WMTS is a ached service that accesses pre-created tiles from a cache on a server’s hard drive instead of dynamically rendering images.

public sealed class WmtsLayer : TiledMapServiceLayer

The WmtsLayer type exposes the following members.

Public methodWmtsLayer
Initializes a new instance of the WmtsLayer class.
Public methodWmtsLayer(Uri)
Creates a new instance of the WmtsLayer class.
Public methodCheckAccess
Determines whether the calling thread has access to this DispatcherObject.
(Inherited from DispatcherObject.)
Public methodClearValue(DependencyProperty)
Clears the local value of a property. The property to be cleared is specified by a DependencyProperty identifier.
(Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodClearValue(DependencyPropertyKey)
Clears the local value of a read-only property. The property to be cleared is specified by a DependencyPropertyKey.
(Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodCoerceValue
Coerces the value of the specified dependency property. This is accomplished by invoking any CoerceValueCallback function specified in property metadata for the dependency property as it exists on the calling DependencyObject.
(Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodEquals
Determines whether a provided DependencyObject is equivalent to the current DependencyObject.
(Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Protected methodFinalize
Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCode
Gets a hash code for this DependencyObject.
(Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodGetLocalValueEnumerator
Creates a specialized enumerator for determining which dependency properties have locally set values on this DependencyObject.
(Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Protected methodGetTileDataAsync
Gets the tile data.
(Inherited from TiledMapServiceLayer.)
Protected methodGetTileUriAsync
Returns the Uri for a tile at a given row, column and level.
(Overrides TiledMapServiceLayerGetTileUriAsync(Int32, Int32, Int32, CancellationToken).)
Public methodGetType
Gets the Type of the current instance.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetValue
Returns the current effective value of a dependency property on this instance of a DependencyObject.
(Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodCode exampleInitializeAsync
Loads the metadata for this layer based on the current configuration.
(Inherited from Layer.)
Protected methodInvalidate
Causes tiled layer to clear tiles.
(Inherited from TiledLayer.)
Public methodInvalidateProperty
Re-evaluates the effective value for the specified dependency property
(Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone
Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodOnInitializeTiledLayerRequestedAsync
Override this method to initialize any properties and settings prior to using the map.
(Overrides TiledLayerOnInitializeTiledLayerRequestedAsync.)
Protected methodOnPropertyChanged(String)
Notifies listeners that a property value has changed.
(Inherited from Layer.)
Protected methodOnPropertyChanged(DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs)
Invoked whenever the effective value of any dependency property on this DependencyObject has been updated. The specific dependency property that changed is reported in the event data.
(Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodReadLocalValue
Returns the local value of a dependency property, if it exists.
(Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSetCurrentValue
Sets the value of a dependency property without changing its value source.
(Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Protected methodSetLayerInitializationFailed
status must be failed - if not throw
(Inherited from Layer.)
Protected methodSetLayerStatus
Status cannot be failed or it will throw. To set Status to LayerStatus.Failed, call SetLayerInitializationFailed.
(Inherited from Layer.)
Public methodSetValue(DependencyProperty, Object)
Sets the local value of a dependency property, specified by its dependency property identifier.
(Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSetValue(DependencyPropertyKey, Object)
Sets the local value of a read-only dependency property, specified by the DependencyPropertyKey identifier of the dependency property.
(Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Protected methodShouldSerializeProperty
Returns a value that indicates whether serialization processes should serialize the value for the provided dependency property.
(Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodToString
Returns a string that represents the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodVerifyAccess
Enforces that the calling thread has access to this DispatcherObject.
(Inherited from DispatcherObject.)
Public fieldStatic memberServiceModeProperty
Identifies the ServiceMode dependency property.
Public fieldStatic memberServiceUriProperty

Demonstrates adding a WMTS layer to the Map in XAML.

Code example using the WMTSLayer Class.

<Window x:Class="WMTSLayerWindow.MainWindow"
        Height="600" Width="800"
        Tag="WMTSLayerWindow" >

    <!-- Demonstrates adding a WMTS layer to the Map in XAML. -->


        <!-- Add a MapView Control. -->
        <esri:MapView x:Name="MapView1" WrapAround="True">

            <!-- Add a Map. -->
            <esri:Map x:Name="MyMap">

                <!-- Add a WmtsLayer. -->
                <esri:WmtsLayer ServiceMode="Rest" 
                      ServiceUri="" />




SPECIAL NOTE: The XAML displayed above comes from a C# project. If you are a VB.NET developer, you will need to modify the text for the x:Class namespace from "WMTSLayerWindow.MainWindow" to be just "MainWindow".
