Is there a way to have a feature's symbol change based on the scale of the map?
For example, at 1:250,000 I would prefer for my sewer main layer to be symbolized on main-type only, but when the user adjusts the scale to say 1:10,000, it would be great if the direction of flow would be added to the symbol (but not before).
The only work around I have found to adjusting symbol detail is to add the layer in more than one time and adjust the symbol with scale ranges. This gets the job done, but is a bit messy in the TOC. Can Symbol Level drawing be used to control this?
The multiple layer approach certainly gets the job done well enough. I was just hoping to simplify the map product for other end users. Maybe this will be an improvement in the future!
Thanks for the reply rfairhur24.
I have submitted this as a feature request as have many others.
The multiple-layers approach really doesn't work well for some of my use cases. I want, for example, a polygon layer that turns to points as the scale gets small (zoomed out). The hitch is, I want the user to be able to select polygons and have the selection switch to the points as they zoom out. This would be for a Esri JS API web app, so manually synchronizing the selections between two layers and toggling visibility based on scale is possible, but tedious.
Any better ideas folks?
