Clear Graphics Activity


Removes all the features from a graphics layer in the currently selected map.


You may need to draw features on a map. You could use the Set Map activity to switch to the map you want to draw on, if there is more than one map, and then use the Clear Graphics activity to clear the existing features that were drawn using the Add Graphics activity.


Layer Id


Type: String | Number

The ID of the graphics layer in the currently selected map to clear. In applications that use the 4.x ArcGIS API for JavaScript, the title of the layer is also searched if no matching ID is found. If no layer ID is provided, the default graphics layer of the currently selected map is cleared.


This activity has no outputs.


For information about the ID, Display Name, and Description properties, see Properties Common to all Activities.
