I'm trying to search features using the "esri/search" module. I'm passing the parameters to callback function (Search) to add a feature layer and search features, but i don't see any features added on map in first place. Please check below the function call:

var mysources = mySearch.get("mysources");
mySearch.on("load", function(){
    myfeatureLayer: new FeatureLayer("http://arcgis-serveruf-1981283418.us-east-1.elb.amazonaws.com/arcgis/rest/services/MyFiles/LandParcels/FeatureServer/0"),
      mode: esri.layers.FeatureLayer.MODE_ONDEMAND,
      searchFields: ["ADDRESS"],
      suggestionTemplate: "Address : ${ADDRESS}",
      exactMatch: false,
      outFields: ["*"],
      name: "land parcels",
      labelSymbol: textSymbol,
      placeholder: "address of parcels",
      maxResults: 6,
      maxSuggestions: 6,
      enableSuggestions: true,
      minCharacters: 1

  • I published a new feature service by changing the projection from NAD to Web Mercator. But i couldn't add the layer to map. I even declared the myfeatureLayer as separate variable as suggested by below, but still it remains un-added. Would you suggest were i had gone wrong ?. Thanks-Kirk – user65031 Jan 14 '16 at 2:46

You haven't explicitly defined myfeatureLayer as a variable, so it's not available when you try to run map.addLayer(myfeatureLayer).

You could first declare myfeaturelayer as a variable, then add the variable to mysources, or you could get the last index of mysources and add that to the map.

  • I defined the myfeatureLayer as a variable before mysources, but still the layer did not show up on the basemap. Any reasons were i had gone wrong?. – user65031 Jan 14 '16 at 2:50
  • Why does myfeatureLayer need to depend on the search function at all? Can you just create a feature layer and add it normally, as in this sample? You're over-complicating things in the above example – Stephen Lead Jan 14 '16 at 2:57
  • Thank you Stephen. I fixed the issue. The features are not highlighted when i click the search with a related value or suggested results. – user65031 Jan 15 '16 at 4:13
