Display a feature layer from a service using the manual cache feature request mode.

Use case

ServiceFeatureTable supports three request modes, which define how features are requested from the service and stored in the local table. The feature request modes have different performance characteristics. Use manual cache in scenarios where you want to explicitly control requests for features.

How to use the sample

Run the sample and pan and zoom around the map. No features will be requested and displayed automatically. Press Populate, and features will display.

How it works

  1. Set the ServiceFeatureTable::setFeatureRequestMode property of the service feature table to FeatureRequestMode::ManualCache before the table is loaded.
  2. Load the table.
  3. Call populateFromService on the table to request features.

Relevant API

  • FeatureLayer
  • FeatureRequestMode::ManualCache
  • ServiceFeatureTable
  • ServiceFeatureTable::populateFromService
  • ServiceFeatureTable::setFeatureRequestMode

About the data

The samples uses an incident feature layer queried to show tree maintenance or damage. The sample opens with an initial visible extent centered over San Francisco.

Additional information

In manual cache mode, features are never automatically populated from the service. All features are loaded manually using calls to PopulateFromService.
