Cast Geometry Activity

Description

The Cast Geometry activity casts a geometry to a specific type.

Usage

A workflow could use the Display Form activity with a Geometry Picker form element to capture a point geometry. The type of the Geometry Picker’s value output is esri.Geometry (3.x, 4.x)*, not esri.Point (3.x, 4.x)*, even though the Geometry Picker is configured to capture a point. As a result, using the geometry as the input to an activity that expects a point geometry results in a type validation error in Designer. For example, using the geometry as the Location input to the Reverse Geocode activity would result in an error. To avoid the error, first use the Cast Geometry activity to return a properly typed point.

Offline Support

This activity works when the device is offline.

Inputs

Geometry

Required

Type: esri.Geometry (3.x, 4.x)*

Outputs

point

Type: esri.Point (3.x, 4.x)*

The geometry as a point.

polygon

Type: esri.Polygon (3.x, 4.x)*

The geometry as a polygon.

polyline

Type: esri.Polyline (3.x, 4.x)*

The geometry as a polyline.

extent

Type: esri.Extent (3.x, 4.x)*

The geometry as an extent.

multipoint

Type: esri.Multipoint (3.x, 4.x)*

The geometry as a multipoint.

* Geocortex Workflow uses different versions of Esri's ArcGIS API for JavaScript depending on the type of application. Web AppBuilder 2D apps and Geocortex HTML5 viewers use version 3.x of the JavaScript API. Web AppBuilder 3D apps use version 4.x.
