Using the ArcGIS Server JavaScript API version 4, is it possible to symbolize points using a numbering system (1-n) as in this mockup?

enter image description here

A simple marker symbol or picture marker symbol can be used to generate the circles, but how can the numbered labels be generated within the circles?

I managed to solve this using a combination of labelClass to generate the labels on-the-fly, and a SimpleRenderer to create the circles.


One solution is to use CIMSymbol - and the documentation has a sample for exactly that scenario.


CIM symbols were introduced at version 4.12 and are used to display multi-layer vector symbols which can include data driven text.
