ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Qt

Show a popup

Sample Viewer View Sample on GitHub

Show predefined popups from a web map.

Use case

Many web maps contain predefined popups which are used to display the attributes associated with each feature layer in the map, such as hiking trails, land values, or unemployment rates. You can display text, attachments, images, charts, and web links. Rather than creating new popups to display information, you can easily access and display the predefined popups.

How to use the sample

Tap on the features to prompt a popup that displays information about the feature.

How it works

  1. Create and load a Map using a URL.
  2. Set the map to a MapView and connect to the MapView.mouseClicked signal.
  3. Use GeoView.identifyLayer(layer, x, y, tolerance, allowPopupsOnly) to identify the top-most feature.
  4. Create a PopupManager for each of the result's Popups and append them to a list.
  5. Assign the list of popup managers to the PopupStackView.popupManagers property.
  6. Display the popup stack view.
