The technical session videos from the 2017 Esri Developer Summit are now online on E360, and with them the ArcGIS Pro SDK sessions. The videos are a useful resource for the latest Pro SDK information and patterns. Below is a handy list with links.
Learn how to write Add-ins for Pro with advanced user interface components including custom control, gallery, and dockpane. We focus on MVVM and integration of WPF to write compelling UIs with Pro supporting Pro themes. We also cover multi-threading considerations when developing UIs in Pro.
Learn how to create map tools for selection and identify, layer pop-ups, custom pop-ups, and how to use the MapControl. We also cover Map Authoring APIs for renderers for 2D (unique value, class break, scale dependent – i.e. for working with Vector Tiles) and rule packages for 3D.
Learn how to take advantage of Pro’s API for accessing Portal and ArcGIS Online. We show use of ArcGISPortalManager, ArcGISPortal, EsriHttpClient, and Json.Net to search, retrieve and upload Online items such as feature services, Vector Tile packages, and web maps. The session will also delve into integrating the portal API into an ArcGIS Pro Configuration.
Learn how to write dpi-aware Add-ins designed with accessibility in mind. Additionally, supporting high contrast mode and keyboard-only navigation is an important part of making your Add-in accessible. We cover scaling, layouts, fonts, styling, and high dpi considerations for Add-ins. We will also cover keytips, tab order, accelerators, and shortcuts for Pro.
Learn how to take advantage of the new Pro SDK Configuration extensibility pattern. We cover handling pre-initialization callbacks (i.e. before the application window is shown) and custom branding with the Splash Screen and Start up Page. We look at streamlining the user interface for specific workflows and user roles.
This session will provide an overview of the Geodatabase API (ArcGIS.Core.Data) for working with data in ArcGIS Pro.
Learn how to create editing tools in Pro. We show customizing the galleries, modify dockpane, using the sketch, and integrating construction tools into the Pro Editor and layer Create Feature templates. We introduce edit operations for creating and modifying Geodatabase features and Geometry.
Demo Theater Sessions:
Learn about new data validation capabilities planned for the ArcGIS Pro SDK for .NET. These capabilities include implementation of data quality requirements using Data Reviewer checks, automated feature validation and workflows for sharing validation methods across the platform.
Looking for a walk-through on how to get up and running with the ArcGIS Pro SDK? Swing by for tips and demos on installing the Pro SDK and the SDK community samples and building your first Pro add-in with DAML. We’ll show you how you can get up and running quickly with the samples as a foundation for great add-ins using the Pro SDK dev patterns and also show you all the online resources and how to get the most out of them.
Solution configurations are a new way to create a focused UI/UX experience in ArcGIS Pro for your users. We’ll give you a quick introduction and then walk-through a basic configuration to customize the Pro splash screen, start page, and UI.
