I created a range domain in a file geodatabase. The type is short integer and ranges from 0 to 200. The domain was assigned to a new column I created. But I could still enter a value greater than 200 to the column of the newed feature (point).

Just unsure what I did wrong.

A feature/flaw of range domains is that you can enter a value which is outside of the range. The error is only flagged if you choose Validate Features on the Editor toolbar

  • Then if I expose the feature class to ArcGIS Online as a feature service and editing of feature is allowed, is "validation features" gonna work? – alextc Aug 6 '14 at 1:37
  • Great question - I'm not sure the answer. Can you post this as a new question with something like "how are range domains validated when editing a feature service online?" and tag it as ArcGIS Server / ArcGIS Online? – Stephen Lead Aug 6 '14 at 1:44
