    Plans for ArcGIS Viewer for Java Script

    rsadler@slco.org
      Does anyone know if ESRI is planning on releasing a ArcGIS Viewer for Java Script like they did for Flex?

          Hi,

          we currently have no plans to update the ArcGIS API for Javascript Viewer Sample. This sample was posted early as an unsupported viewer. I encourage you to have a look at the ArcGIS.com Javascript Viewer. See recent blog post here.

            Hi Ismael,

            You've previously mentioned that you're not a fan of "GIS training wheels" such as a Table of Contents - but sometimes there may be valid reasons why a web map needs to have some form of layer control.

            Currently there aren't any useful Table of Contents samples for the JavaScript API. Would you consider providing a TOC sample? This would allow users to get up+running with the JavaScript API a lot faster, and would remove the need for a "viewer".

            Ideally the TOC should:

              support feature, dynamic and tiled layers
              allow grouped layers
              control opacity
              allow Zoom To Extent
              show symbology

            The TOC used in the maps at http://www.arcgis.com/home/webmap/viewer.html is ideal, so we just need a way to use this in our own applications.

            Thanks,
            Steve
