public class DictionaryRenderer : Renderer

The DictionaryRenderer type exposes the following members.

Public propertyIsTextVisible Obsolete.
Gets or sets the visibility for the text on the symbol.
Public propertyCode exampleRotationExpression
Gets/sets the expression describing how a Graphic's attributes are translated into a rotation to be applied to the Graphic.
(Inherited from Renderer.)
Public propertyRotationType
Gets/sets whether the rotation calculated from the RotationExpression is screen- or map-relative.
(Inherited from Renderer.)
Public propertyScaleExpression
Gets or sets an arcade expression object with an expression for scaling symbols in a dictionary renderer.
Public propertyCode exampleSceneProperties
Gets or sets the scene properties for the renderer.
(Inherited from Renderer.)
Public propertySymbolDictionaryStyle
Gets or sets the dictionary symbol style to be applied by the renderer.
Public propertySymbologyFieldOverrides
Gets or sets the dictionary of a symbology attribute and its override used to fetch a symbol from the dictionary symbol style.
Public propertyTextFieldOverrides
Gets or sets the map of a text attribute and its override used to fetch symbol text and placement from the dictionary symbol style.
Public propertyTextVisibilityMaxScale Obsolete.
Gets or sets the maximum scale for 2D or distance for 3D at which symbol's text will be visible.
Public propertyTextVisibilityMinScale Obsolete.
Gets or sets the minimum scale for 2D or distance for 3D at which symbol's text will be visible.
Public propertyUnknownJson
Gets unknown data from the source JSON.
(Inherited from Renderer.)
Public propertyUnsupportedJson
Gets unsupported data from the source JSON.
(Inherited from Renderer.)
Public methodCode exampleClone
Returns a clone of the Renderer.
(Inherited from Renderer.)
Public methodGetSymbol(GeoElement)
Returns the symbol the renderer uses to represent the supplied GeoElement.
(Inherited from Renderer.)
Public methodGetSymbol(GeoElement, Boolean)
Returns the symbol that should be used to visualize the given GeoElement with override attributes from renderer.
(Inherited from Renderer.)
Public methodToJson
Returns the json representation of the renderer
(Inherited from Renderer.)
Public eventPropertyChanged
Occurs when a property value changes.
(Inherited from Renderer.)

The DictionaryRenderer applies symbols to features or graphics according to a set of input attribute values.The symbol primitives and logic(rule engine) for applying symbols is provided by an associated DictionarySymbolStyle The DictionarySymbolStyle depends on attribute names to define the symbology of each feature. The attributes reference different symbol components in the style, which are assembled to create a complex symbol. In order to display geoelements using the DictionaryRenderer, attributes in your data must either use the expected attribute names or be mapped to the proper style attributes.



Example Name: CustomDictionaryStyle

Use a custom dictionary style (.stylx) to symbolize features using a variety of attribute values.
