Set Layer Property Activity


The Set Layer Property activity sets the value of an arbitrary property of a layer in the currently selected map.


Layer Id


Type: String | Number

The ID of the layer in the currently selected map whose property is of interest.

If the workflow will run in Geocortex Web, Geocortex Mobile, or Web AppBuilder, you can either set Layer Id to the ID from the layer object or to the layer name from the web map.

To run the workflow in the Geocortex Viewer for HTML5, set Layer Id to the map service ID. Get the map service ID from Geocortex Essentials Manager or from the Geocortex Essentials Sites Directory.



Type: String

The name of the property of interest. This name is case-sensitive.

Refer to the Esri documentation for a list of property names for specific layer types, for example, dynamic layers (3.x 4.x)* or feature layers (3.x 4.x). To see the property names for other layer types, follow the link in the Subclasses section of the Layer page (3.x 4.x). The Layer page also lists the properties that are common to all layer types (3.x 4.x).



Type: any

The value for the property to set.

* Geocortex Workflow uses different versions of Esri's ArcGIS API for JavaScript depending on the type of host application. See Underlying Technologies for information.



Type: any

The previous property value.


Type: any

The new property value.


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