Hi I'm using ArcGIS JS API 3.21 and Web Appbuilder for Developers 2.7.
I'm defining and adding a feature layer from a map service to my map, giving it a custom unique value renderer and setting a definition expression and it is working fine. The final thing I need to do is to filter it by a custom polygon geometry. In the service you can pass custom geometry to a query, I just need to find out how to set a filter on my feature layer using the same geometry.
I've tried using MODE_SELECTION and then selecting features with the geometry, but this gets rid of my unique value renderer in favour of the selection symbol. I'm pretty sure I can't set a unique value renderer as the selection symbol and even then that would be a bit hacky.
The user needs to generate a custom selection of features from the map using attribute filtering and custom polygon filtering, and once they are happy with their selection the features are submitted via a HTTP request to an ordering system. The user only wants their currently selected features to appear on the map.
Something like this would be good:
The featurelayer definition expression and input geometry can be updated on the fly as the user interacts with the widget.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
