ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Qt

Add features (feature service)

Sample Viewer View Sample on GitHub

Add features to a feature layer.

Use case

An end-user performing a survey may want to add features to the map during the course of their work.

How to use the sample

Click on a location on the map to add a feature at that location.

How it works

A Feature is added to a ServiceFeatureTable which then pushes that new feature to the server.

  1. Create a ServiceFeatureTable from a URL.
  2. Create a FeatureLayer from the service feature table.
  3. Create a Feature with attributes and a location using createFeature().
  4. Add the feature to the table using addFeature.
  5. Update the table on the server using applyEdits().
