A visual cue in the TOC when a layer has a Deifinition Query applied.
Updated link for TOC Definition Query View sample
TOC Definition Query View for ArcGIS Desktop 10.1
Is there any way to get this installed under 10.3.1 as running the setup file it complains that 10.1 is not installed and bails on the installation?
Chris Fox is there any way that you could re-compile your setup to work with 10.3.1?
Six years passed and it's still an idea……
Another great idea that has been sitting in limbo. It has NOT even been marked for under consideration or deferred.
Does anyone know how many votes does it take for ESRI to consider an idea?
I have seen some ideas with a third as many votes marked for consideration or other ideas that were implemented with half the votes. The whole process of ArcGIS ideas is flawed.
Even our dysfunctional government has a set minimum that requires 100,000 signatures and the white house will provide comment in 60 days.
Add-ins are great as a temporary fix and we thank Chris Fox (@ESRI) for his efforts but something like this should be standard and an ESRI moderator should comment for us where this is going. Six years is a long time!
I know this talks about ArcMap but in case any of you are using ArcGIS Pro, when a layer has a def query you can highlight that layer in the Content pane and then if you look under the Data tab in the Feature layer ribbon you will see the def query as one of the boxes on the toolbar and is shows you the clause
This Idea has been marked as Not In Current Product Plan as it will not be implemented with an indicator in the table of contents. The implementation will be to indicate which definition query is active on a layer through the Definition Query group in the Feature Layer's Data tab.
This Geocode layer has no definition query applied.
While this layer has a definition query of ObjectID = 1
Would the user need to click through each layer in the TOC to identify the presence of a definition query?
Yes, the Definition Query group displays the query for the selected layer.
That is certainly better than nothing, however, not the easiest to find. I had to read your original post a couple of times to finally realize where it was. This is just me having to get used to the ribbon design. I'll get it eventually with enough use.
Also, a side note, why does your screenshot have inverted colors?
That's Pro's Dark theme: What's new in ArcGIS Pro 1.4—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop
I think the definition query in the ribbon is a good enhancement, but I don't think it meets the goal of this idea that has over 8000 points/votes. Kory Kramer's screenshots illustrate again why a visual cue would be helpful when you have several layers based off the same source and similarly named but not certain which have definition queries at a glance - to reduce the number of clicks which was a prime objective of esri's if I recall at the dev summit.
Very very good idea for both Desktop AND for web viewers (Web App Builder's TOC / LayerList). How can this be Not In Product Plan! And by the way it'll be a long time until many places migrate to Pro, Esri needs to realize this. Part of it is problems with Pro or things needing to be added still like publishing directly to Server, and also just general inertia. It'll probably be a half decade until majority of users are on Pro and not ArcMap and in that case it'd seem worth it to add this quick little idea that would be very very helpful. Sometimes we are looking at a service or mxd and like "Why isn't this working" and usually we know, hey go check for a Def Query but some new users don't know that, and also sometimes it's just forgotten or at least temporarily overlooked. This little visual cue would help users avoid this pitfall and it would seem very simply to add to ArcMap? It is just a little badge or some little icon to place next to a layer if it has a Def Query.
