Passing Query Result to InfoTemplate Called Earlier in Script

Question asked by sethlewistempe on Sep 14, 2015
Latest reply on Sep 16, 2015 by sethlewistempe

Our web map runs a spatial query based off X-Y values pulled from a user-supplied address. The spatial query then checks if the geocoded point lies within a given polygonal feature representing trash and recycling service areas and populates a DOM element with the given field value (e.g. Tuesday).


I am attempting to pass the spatial query results, which are returned later in the script, back to a previously called infoTemplate which the user obtains if they click on the geocoded address point. Thus, the user would be able to obtain their recycling schedule data either by review the relevant DOM element or by clicking on the blue pin displaying their searched for address.


The infoTemplate falls within the local scope of its function and I'm stumped on how to pass back to the infoTemplate the results from a later-run query.


Would this even be feasible? I've looked at deferred objects and infoWindows (see here Info window with deferred object | ArcGIS API for JavaScript ) but I'm not certain if that's even applicable.


Here's our initial code:

//add geocoded address point to map with infoTemplate

    function addPlaceGraphic(item, symbol) {
                  var place = {};
                  var attributes, infoTemplate, pt, graphic;
                  pt = item.feature.geometry;
                  place.address =;
                  place.score = item.feature.attributes.score;

       // Graphic components
                  attributes = { address: place.address, score: place.score, lat: pt.getLatitude().toFixed(2), lon: pt.getLongitude().toFixed(2) };
                  infoTemplate = new InfoTemplate("${address}", "Latitude: ${lat}<br/>Longitude: ${lon}"<br/>Score: ${score});
                  graphic = new Graphic(pt, symbol, attributes, infoTemplate);

     // Add to map
                  runPWQuery(pt, trashLayer, "trash");
                  runPWQuery(pt, yardWasteLayer, "yardwaste");
                  runPWQuery(pt, recyclingLayer, "recycling");

    //add featureLayers here
    //run query against previously called FeatureLayers

    function runPWQuery(in_geometry , in_fl , in_container_id) {
            var query = new esri.tasks.Query();
            query.returnGeometry = true;
            query.outFields = ["*"];
            query.geometry = in_geometry;

              function (myresponse, io) {
                  var temp_val;
                  var values = [];
                  var tstr;
                  for (var il = 0; il < myresponse.features.length; il++) {
                      if (myresponse.features[il].attributes["MONDAY"] == "Yes") {
                          temp_val = "Monday";
                      else if (myresponse.features[il].attributes["TUESDAY"] == "Yes") {
                          temp_val = "Tuesday";
                      else if (myresponse.features[il].attributes["WEDNESDAY"] == "Yes") {
                          temp_val = "Wednesday";
                      else if (myresponse.features[il].attributes["THURSDAY"] == "Yes") {
                          temp_val = "Thursday";
                      else if (myresponse.features[il].attributes["FRIDAY"] == "Yes") {
                          temp_val = "Friday";
                      else {
                          //temp_val = "Other";
                          temp_val = myresponse.features[il].attributes["DESCRIPT"];

    var statCount = myresponse.features.length;
                  if (statCount >= 1) {                    
                      $("#" + in_container_id).html(temp_val);
                  else {
                      $("#" + in_container_id).html("");

              function (error) {
                  console.log(dojo.toJson(error, true));

        function renderPWQuery() {


  Thanks everyone for any help.
