List related features

View Sample on GitHub

List features related to the selected feature.


Use case

Related features are useful for managing relational information, like what you would store in a relational database management system (RDBMS). You can define relationship between records as one-to-one, one-to-many, or many-to-one. For example, you could model inspections and facilities as a many-to-one relationship. Then, for any facility feature, you could list related inspection features.

How to use the sample

Click on a feature to select it. The related features will be displayed in a list.

How it works

  1. With a Feature, call QueryRelatedFeaturesAsync on the feature's feature table.
  2. Iterate over the result's collection of RelatedFeatureQueryResult objects to get the related features and add them to a list.

Sample Code

        <esriUI:MapView x:Name="MyMapView" />
        <Border Style="{StaticResource BorderStyle}">
                <TextBlock Text="Tap a park (green) to see related features."
                           TextAlignment="Center" FontWeight="SemiBold"
                           Margin="0,0,0,10" />
                <ProgressBar x:Name="LoadingProgress"
                             Margin="0,0,0,10" Visibility="Visible" />
                <ListView x:Name="MyResultsView"
                            <TextBlock Text="{Binding}" TextWrapping="Wrap" />
