ArcGIS JavaScript API issue, I am developing a web editing application and if I move any feature,  edits-complete event of feature
layer does not fire, I need to run a function feature move/update completes. Is it a bug or I am missing something here, if you guys know any work around or having same issue please let me know.

Thanks

Check out this sample.

When you are done moving the vertices, you need to deactivate the toolbar. You'll need to wire up when this happens, in this case the sample deactivates the toolbar on a dbl-click and then applies the edits to the FeatureLayer.

function initEditing(evt) {
  var firePerimeterFL = map.getLayer("firePerimeterFL");
  var editToolbar = new Edit(map);
  editToolbar.on("deactivate", function(evt) {
    if ( evt.info.isModified ) {
      firePerimeterFL.applyEdits(null, [evt.graphic], null);
    }
  });
  var editingEnabled = false;
  firePerimeterFL.on("dbl-click", function(evt) {
    event.stop(evt);
    if (editingEnabled === false) {
      editingEnabled = true;
      editToolbar.activate(Edit.EDIT_VERTICES , evt.graphic);
    } else {
      editToolbar.deactivate();
      editingEnabled = false;
    }
  });
}

Hope that helps.

Do you have some sample code to get a better idea of what's happening?

Are you using the Edit Toolbar?

The edits-complete method is only emitted from a FeatureLayer after you use the applyEdits method.

Hi Rene, Thank you so much for your response. I am not using applyEdits since I am using editor widget.

Yes I am using the toolbar but it also happens if I just click on the feature and move it. This event firs just fine if I add a new feature or delete one. Here is the sample code

Hydrants.on("edits-complete", refreshLayer);

CPN.on("edits-complete", refreshLayer);

Street.on("edits-complete", refreshLayer);

refreshLayer = function () {

webEditedLayers.refresh();

CPN.refresh();

Hydrants.refresh();

Street.refresh();

}

If it only works when using applyEdits, then is there any other event fire after moving a feature?

Thanks and I really appreciate your help.

}

Thanks so much Rene, I got it to work from your suggestion, I was using editor widget instead of coding for editing, editor toolbar activates when you single click on a feature and deactivates when any feature gets unselected or you click any place on the map other than features and then edits-completes fires..thanks so much for pointing me to the right direction.

Hi Aziza,

This should work.  Below is a modified sample that writes the array of results returned from the edits-complete event after the waterbodies feature layer is edited.

Jake the sample didn’t work for me, since I was using editor widget, all I needed was to deactivate the toolbar,. Thanks so much for your time.
