Hi there, 

I would like my chart to filter, select and zoom to selected features in the map. At the moment it selects and filters but does not zoom to the features.

This is how my chart actions are set up

And this is the map

Hi @Hayley and @Ashok,

I dug for a while and found that this should be a known limitation at this moment. For W-Chart & W-Map interactions, there are only Flash and Filter supported. It appears that the options of "Zoom" and "Pan" in the Chart widget were not removed from the UI so it is documented here: ExB Chart widget > interaction options note

For this function itself -

From my understanding, unlike the Query widget, which directly utilizes the added data source, Chart creates an output data source (i.e. Chart statistics) right when data gets rendered. Once that happens, it lost all geospatial reference, thus, there is no way to get the extent for zoom or pan which depends on geometry, when you select anything from the Chart widget.

Hi,

 

I am also facing similar issue. Not able to zoom to feature, where as I can able to do select, flash. 

Do you have any further update/enhancement on your post. If you have any success, please share.

 

Thanks,

Ashok

Hi Ashok, I spoke to an Esri consultant and they were quite certain that it is not possible as there is no "geometric values" in the statistical chart?

Hi,

 

But we are able to select/flash the feature on Select Data Records Trigger/Action.

Then why we are not able to zoom to feature.

 

Can any ESRI people respond on this. Or please let us know if it can be implemented in future releases. 

Because it is very common functionality that any user can look for zoom to feature on bar chart item click.

 

Thanks,

Ashok

Thanks for your response! I hope there is a workaround this in the near future as it is a major setback.

We will look into that and see if there will be any enhancement possibilities.
