Set Layer Property Activity

Description

The Set Layer Property activity sets the value of an arbitrary layer property.

Inputs

Layer Id

Required

Type: String | Number

The ID of the layer 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.

Name

Required

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).

Value

Type: any

The value for the property to set.
