Is it possible to open a local Scene Layer Package (slpk) with the runtime?

Hello,

I am trying to develop some code that I can use to open a local SLPK with the Runtime and I have not found much sample code. I've used the MobileMapPackage class to open an MMPK, but I have not found a comparable class for SceneLayerPackage, or something similar.

Any ideas? Is this possible at this point?

Thanks,

Mike...

You should be able to open an *.slpk file directly with ArcGISSceneLayer like the following:

var sceneLayer = new ArcGISSceneLayer(new Uri(@"C:\temp\Test.slpk"));
await sceneLayer.LoadAsync();
var scene = new Scene(Basemap.CreateImagery())
{
    InitialViewpoint = new Viewpoint(sceneLayer.FullExtent)
};
scene.OperationalLayers.Add(sceneLayer);
MySceneView.Scene = scene;

If the layer fails to load you can check ArcGISSceneLayer.LoadError for the reason.

Greg,

Thanks for the information. I finally got back around to trying this out today. When I call LoadAsync on the ArcGISSceneLayer, the LoadStatus of the layer is set to FailedToLoad and the LoadError is null.

Any ideas?

Thanks again,

Can you share what's in your scene layer package and how you created it? There are some layers that can go in a scene layer package that the runtime doesn't support as of yet. I suspect unsupported package contents is the case for you, but I would have expected a useful exception message.

Greg,

Yeah, I have a feeling that’s what it is as well. We’ve got a point cloud layer in that SLPK, and after looking around a little, that ma not be supported yet in the Runtime.

Do you think that may be the problem?

Thanks,

Yep, that's the problem. Point cloud scene layers are not currently supported by the Runtime. They are on the docket for the next release - if all goes well. I'll check the exception message and see if we can give a less confusing experience for unsupported scene layers like this.
