I have 3 layers (2 point and 1 line) that coincide, let's call them A, B, and C. I have tried several things to get the popup order to be A (1 of 3), B,(2 of 3), C (3 of 3): ordering the layers in Content with A on top, then B, then C; renaming them so that they are in alphabetical order; creating copies of the layers in a specific order. No matter what I try, the popups appear in the order B, A, C. They don't seem to order in the order they appear in Content or the Legend, alphabetically, or in order of creation/modification. Is there any way to force one layer's popup to display 1st, or specify the order in which the popups display?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Has this issue been resolved? This is getting to be a real need as we are pushing Portal/AGOL webmaps more to our clients with more data in them. it is unfortunate they have to click multiple times, or click the arrow to cycle through results.
I would agree with the other commenters that it would be useful to be able to set the pop-up order, even if it makes the pop-up return slightly slower. That way users could decide if its worth the performance hit or not.
As others have already expressed, I too would like the popups to order in a particular way. It is frustrating that we can't match popups to the layers in the TOC. "Speed" determines this order...? Come on ESRI, that doesn't make sense. We are providing information to viewers in a manner that makes sense--that should come first.
Bump... again. Very frustrating. In my case, I have 2 layers with pop-ups, occupying the same geometry point. Whenever I click the point, a pop-up for layer B is first, then layer A, then back to B. I don't understand how this can happen.
Ordering data in a meaningful way is vital. I have a background raster and then rasters containing user-controlled content. If I turn on pop-ups for the background raster, it always comes up first in the pop-up. I then have to somehow educate users to flip to the second pop-up. If I turn off pop-ups for the background rasters, I've gotten feedback from multiple users not understanding why pop-ups only work in certain spots. If the goal of AGOL is for GIS users to create content accessible to non-GIS-savvy users, this pop-up ordering is self-defeating. Interactive maps should be intuitive. This is not.
Agreed. It's comical at this point (4 years after I posted the issue). I get questions all the time about why I don't provide information about features that users click on. My response: "It's in there somewhere, you just have to keep clicking that little arrow until you find it.". Their response: "That's stupid, why don't you fix that?". I don't feel that the ESRI answer that was posted is correct. It's true, but providing people worthless information quickly isn't "correct".
-Why don't you fix that?
I will also add my name to this 'want'. We are building an app using the Serviceability Lookup Solution. I need to have the results of the pop-up in a particular order and as of now, I can't figure out how to arrange the order of the results.
