How to get view.goTo to loop through multiple graphics...

Hi there...

I'm trying to animate through a set of graphics from a featurelayer. For some reason my code only zooms to the last feature (or, just zooms through all of them so fast it gets to the end). 

Here is the code I am using:

view.whenLayerView(featureLayer).then(function(layerView)
{
   layerView.watch("updating", function(value)
   {
      if (!value)
      {
         // wait for the layer view to finish updating
         if (loading != "done")
         {
            // query all the features available for drawing.
            layerView
               .queryFeatures(
               {
                  geometry: featureLayer.extent,
                  returnGeometry: true
               })
               .then(function(results)
               {
                  graphics = results.features;
                  graphics.forEach(function(result, index)
                  {
                     lat = result.geometry.latitude;
                     lon = result.geometry.longitude;
                     view.goTo(
                     {
                        center: [lon, lat],
                        zoom: 4
                     },
                     {
                        duration: 30000,
                        maxDuration: 30000,
                     })
                  });
                  loading = "done";
               })
               .catch(function(error)
               {
                  console.error("query failed: ", error);
               });
         }
      }
   });
});

 

I would like the application to zoom to one graphic, wait 2 seconds, then pan over to the next graphic and so on.

Thanks in advance,

M

Perhaps something like the following:

function stepThroughGraphics(view, graphics, index) {
	if (index < graphics.length) {
		var geometry = graphics[index++].geometry;

		view.goTo({
			center: [geometry.longitude, geometry.latitude],
			zoom: 4
		},{
			duration: 30000,
			maxDuration: 30000
		}).then(function() {
			window.setTimeout(stepThroughGraphics.bind(view, graphics, index), 2000);
		});
	} else
		loading = "done";
}

//etc

view.whenLayerView(featureLayer).then(function(layerView) {
	layerView.watch("updating", function(value) {
		if (!value) {
			// wait for the layer view to finish updating
			if (loading != "done") {
				// query all the features available for drawing.
				layerView.queryFeatures({
					geometry: featureLayer.extent,
					returnGeometry: true
				}).then(function(results) {
					stepThroughGraphics(view, results.features, 0);
				}).catch(function(error) {
					console.error("query failed: ", error);
				});
			}
		}
	});
});

One thing I see is that the line with window.setTimeout should instead be:

window.setTimeout(stepThroughGraphics.bind(window, view, graphics, index), 2000);

 

(forgot about that first argument in the call to bind...)

Thanks. That looks like a good approach...

Seems it zooms to the first feature, then errors out though:

Not sure why. Will debug a bit.

Cheers.
