Remove Graphics Activity


Removes the specified features from a graphics layer in the currently selected map.


You may need to draw features on a map. You could use the Set Map activity to switch to the map you want to draw on, if there is more than one map, and then use the Remove Graphics activity to remove some of the features that were drawn using the Add Graphics activity.


Layer Id


Type: String | Number

The ID of the graphics layer in the currently selected map to remove features from. In applications that use the 4.x ArcGIS API for JavaScript, the title of the layer is also searched if no matching ID is found. If no layer ID is provided, the features are removed from the default graphics layer of the currently selected map.



Type: esri.Graphic (3.x, 4.x)* | esri.FeatureSet (3.x, 4.x)* | esri.Graphic[] (3.x, 4.x)*

The set of features to be removed from the layer.

* VertiGIS Studio Workflow uses different versions of Esri's ArcGIS API for JavaScript depending on the type of host application. See Underlying Technologies for information.
