StreamLayer purgeOptions.age ignored (Javascript API 3.x)

Dear all,

I would like to change purgeOptions.age of a StreamLayer after it was already added to the map:

   layer.purgeOptions.age = 1;

But the value is just ignored and older graphics are not removed.

On the other hand if I set purgeOptions.displayCount to a fixed value it works as expected.

It also works if I set purgeOptions.age before the StreamLayer is added to the map. But unfortunately that is not an option for my current use case.

Any hints?

Best regards,

In 3.x, you can't directly change properties on something that has already been created. You usually have to use a setProperty method. In this case, there is the setPurgeInterval method you could use.

Unfortunately setPurgeInterval does not change purgeOptions.age.
And I can change the Property layer.purgeOptions.displayCount directly, but the change of layer.purgeOptions.age is ignored.
