I saw that the Search widget only supports locators and feature layers not created by client-side graphics (docs). Bummer.
I have data living in a non-ArcGIS cloud database. I need it added to a map. I want a unified search widget that can accept the usual addresses and location names, but also the names of these objects living in my cloud database.
I don't want to create a custom search widget. And I want to avoid having to copy data from one database to another.
Does anybody know of a clever workaround to all this? Perhaps some way to create a live feature feed using my cloud database?
Thanks in advance.
Great question. This requires further testing, but it should work with layers like CSVLayer, GeoJSONLayer, and OGCFeatureLayer. It should only be the client-side FeatureLayer that will not work.
