Hello,

I was already able to edit existing records a non-spatial table in my SDE database using FeatureLayer and FeatureTable following this example (Using FeatureTable (no map) | ArcGIS API for JavaScript) and using the editable property. I would now like to be able to insert (clicking a button would add a blank record at the bottom) and delete selected records from this table. Is this possible? I thought about using applyEdits but I understand it will only accept graphics as parameters (FeatureLayer | API Reference | ArcGIS API for JavaScript)

Thanks!

There is no built in functionality for this (at least at 3.16).  I had a similar need and ended up extending the featureTable dijit and adding the attributeInspector dijit to create a new row.

.fwijitsFeatureTableEditorIcon {

    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    width: 18px;
    height: 18px;
    text-align: center;
}
.dijitDisabled .fwijitsFeatureTableEditorIcon {
    background-image: url('images/featureTableEditor/editorIconsDisabled.png'); /* editor icons sprite image for the disabled state */
}

.fwijitsFeatureTableAdd { background-position: 0; }
.fwijitsFeatureTableEdit { background-position: -18px; }
.fwijitsFeatureTableDelete { background-position: -36px; }

At the very least, the javascript code should give you a start.

I have this same question.  I did not see any way to do this using the FeatureTable.  Does anyone have any hints or suggestions as to accomplish adding a new row to the FeatureTable (and to delete an existing row)?

Thanks,

Abby

Have you tried creating a new Graphic object and not update the geometry?

At the very least, the javascript code should give you a start.

Thank you very much. I am trying to first use your code by integrating into the example at Using FeatureTable (no map) | ArcGIS API for JavaScript 3.17 , but so far I have been unsuccessful. I am probably doing some very basic mistakes but here is what I am doing. Here is my version of code (in a file text.html) and the folder structure.

I don't think your too far off.  Here are a couple things I notice right off the bat...

  • I haven't tested it with 3.17.  I did override some private functions, so there may be breaking changes at 3.17. It should work with 3.16.
  • You will need to add a link to the stylesheet -- the dijit won't load it by default.
  • Also, attached are the 2 sprite images referenced in the stylesheet.

Thanks. I got it working now. It looks and works awesome. By the way the main reason it didn't work was because I wasn't aware of "dojo/text!" requirement. I was putting "templates/featureTableEditor.html" for importing and the compiler was naturally looking for a JS file.

Thanks again!!

Excellent. Glad to hear it works for you. Were you able to test it on 3.17?

I have a hard time reading these errors. I suppose the error is triggered by the "this.inherited(arguments);" line in the buildRendering function inside featureTableEditor   Can you tell what this is about?

It looks like they modified the template quite a bit at 3.17.  Try using the following html.  I haven't tried this myself yet.
