JavaScript Debugging Tips Part II – Google Chrome and the Console Tab

This blog post is the 2nd in a series of JavaScript debugging tips and tricks to help you on your way. See JavaScript Debugging Tips Part I – Google Chrome and the Network Tab for our first segment.


The most enjoyable part of any programming assignment is right near the beginning when you sit down with a pile of tools and resources and start hammering away at raw clumps of code. The more difficult part comes when you attempt to launch the application, only to watch that tightly-written code unravel into multiple late nights staring at a computer screen. However, all is not lost, as we have an excellent recommendation for you, which is the subject of this blog: the Console tab inside your favorite browser’s Developer Tools. Continue reading

Getting Comfortable with JavaScript API 4.0

Now that the ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.0 has been released for a couple of weeks, this is an excellent opportunity to take a walk through some of the new syntax and functionality. This blog will go through a sample 3D application focusing on the Search widget. You can follow along with the sample code from the Esri Developer Support GitHub repository, and run the hosted sample here: View it Live.

Functionality-wise, the app displays a 3D map with four widgets: Search, Zoom, Compass, and Attribution. By default, the View includes the latter three widgets, as described in the documentation. If you’re not familiar with the 4.x changes, all mapping apps contain a map and a view. The map holds the data, and the view contains the visualization information for that data. In other words, the map is the subject, and the view is the camera; complete with filters, modes, and settings. All 2D apps will have MapViews, and 3D apps will have SceneViews (note: the term ‘scene’ indicates three dimensions across ArcGIS). The same applies for maps from ArcGIS Online and Portal for ArcGIS: a WebMap is 2D, and a WebScene is 3D.

Search Improvements on the New Support Site

With the launch of the new Esri Support website, you may temporarily experience a less robust search compared to that of the previous Support site. This is expected and the search experience is expected to improve significantly over the next few days.

To create a search that brings you the content you’re looking for, our new site requires time to make connections among various indexes, collections, and feeds. This process will take a few days, but in the interim, please use the site navigation to find content through the product pages or by using your preferred search engine.

Thanks for your continued support, and we’ll keep you updated as we progress!
