Initializes a new instance of the Scene class with a BasemapStyle.
Public methodCode exampleScene(BasemapType)
Initializes a new instance of the Scene class with a Basemap.
Public methodCode exampleScene(Item)
Initializes a new instance of the Scene class with an ArcGIS Item.
Public methodScene(SceneViewTilingScheme)
Initializes a new instance of the Scene class with a specific tiling scheme.
Public propertyAllLayers
Gets all layers in the order they are rendered (bottom-most first).
Public propertyCode exampleBasemap
Gets or sets the basemap for the Scene
Public propertyCode exampleBaseSurface
