Nliu's TOC and Legend issue - hits arcgis.com tools at times

Discussion created by amarsden on Jan 30, 2015

Ok - I'm not sure if this more an issue with our setup rather than the code, as it is random. But sometime the creation of a TOC hangs - eventually I get a timeout error.


I tracked this down and occasionally it seems to be hitting www.arcgis.com/sharing/tools/legend to get the legend - of course, with an internal URL it falls over.

 

I have hacked the code to prevent this

            //ACM hack
            //if (this.rootLayer.version >= 10.01) {
            if (1==1) {
                url = this.rootLayer.url + '/legend';
            } else {
                url = 'http://www.arcgis.com/sharing/tools/legend';
                var i = this.rootLayer.url.toLowerCase().indexOf('/rest/');
                var soap = this.rootLayer.url.substring(0, i) + this.rootLayer.url.substring(i + 5);
                url = url + '?soapUrl=' + escape(soap);
            }

 

As I know my services are greater than 10.01 I can always do this section and rather than remove the 'if' totally I replaced the condition with 1==1

 

I also put a

         

console.debug(this.rootLayer.version)

 

 

in the code - the times it fails this returns as empty

 

However

            console.debug(this.rootLayer.dpi)

 

always returns a value, even when version is empty - other properties of this.rootlayer are also fine.

 

I have no idea why it is happening, but this is my fix I thought I'd share.
