Display common symbols for all graphics in a graphics overlay with a renderer.

Use case

Graphics are often used to display data that changes location regularly because they are held in memory instead of being persisted to the map. When a number of graphics are required to share the same style, a simple renderer can be applied to the graphics overlay containing the graphics. For example, the location of mobile taxis from a same company could be plotted on a map with each taxi marked by a relevant symbol.

How to use the sample

The sample loads with a predefined simple renderer, which displays a red cross simple marker symbol for the graphics in the graphics overlay.

How it works

A GraphicsOverlay is added to the MapView. A SimpleRenderer is created in the GraphicsOverlay which sets a red cross SimpleMarkerSymbol as its symbol. Three Graphics are added using Points.

  1. Create a GraphicsOverlay.
  2. Create a number of Point objects with x, y and spatial reference parameters.
  3. Create a SimpleMarkerSymbol passing in a SimpleMarkerSymbolStyle, color and size as parameters.
  4. Create a SimpleRenderer and set the SimpleMarkerSymbol as its symbol.
  5. Create a number of Graphic objects with the points initiated in step 2.

  • SimpleMarkerSymbol

Additional information

Renderers are used to display graphics that don't already have a symbol set. A renderer will not override a graphic's symbol if one has been set.
