Sample viewer app

Identify features in a scene to select.

screenshot

Use case

You can select features to visually distinguish them with a selection color or highlighting. This can be useful to demonstrate the physical extent or associated attributes of a feature, or to initiate another action such as centering that feature in the scene view.

How to use the sample

Click on a building in the scene layer to select it. Deselect buildings by clicking away from the buildings.

How it works

  1. Create an ArcGISSceneLayer passing in the URL to a scene layer service.
  2. Use SceneView::mouseClicked signal to get the screen tap location screenPoint.
  3. Call SceneView::identifyLayer to identify features in the scene that intersect the tapped screen point.
  4. From the resulting IdentifyLayerResult, a list of identified GeoElements are obtained.
  5. Get the first element in the list, checking that it is a feature, and call ArcGISSceneLayer::selectFeature(feature) to select it.
