I am trying to update the symbology of a raste layer using an existing layer file with 2 different functions:
- update layer
- apply symbology from layer
The same function works with shapefiles, though.
Nothing happens, still the code runs till the end with no error message, which makes it pretty difficult to find the error.
data = arcpy.mapping.Layer(raster) # raster path defined above arcpy.mapping.AddLayer(df, depth_data) # data frame defined above srcLay = workDir + "Symbology.lyr" # working directory defined above srcLayObj = arcpy.mapping.Layer(srcLay) # this function: arcpy.mapping.UpdateLayer(df, data, srcLayObj, True) # or alternatively: # arcpy.ApplySymbologyFromLayer_management (data, srcLayObj)
Do you know what a reason could be?
This is a duplicate of https://community.esri.com/thread/192108-import-symbology-from-layer-arcpy Looks like geonet hiccup'd. Please delete one one of the threads.
i did not realize, thank you! i cannot delete it, though. how to?
