This sample shows how the different options of the simple data layer affect rendering.
<br /><br />
Data set:<br />
<input type="button" value="Extruded KML polygons" onclick="loadDataSet('../Common/data/KML/internet_users_2005_choropleth_3D.kml')" />
<input type="button" value="Sample GeoRSS" onclick="loadDataSet('../Common/data/GeoRSS/SampleGeoRSS.xml')" />
<br /><br />
<div class="tab">
<button class="tablinks active" onclick="openTab(this, 'SimpleDataLayerOptions')">Layer Options</button>
<button class="tablinks" onclick="openTab(this, 'Code')">Code</button>
<div id="SimpleDataLayerOptions" class="tabcontent" style="display:block;">
<tr title="Specifies if polygons that have a height property should be rendered as extruded polygons. Default: true">
<td>Allow extrusions:</td>
<td><input id="allowExtrusions" type="checkbox" onclick="updateLayer()" checked="checked" /></td>
<tr title="Specifies if popups should appear when shapes are clicked. Default: true">
<td>Enable popups:</td>
<td><input id="enablePopups" type="checkbox" onclick="updateLayer()" checked="checked" /></td>
<tr title="If a point feature has a title or name property, this option specifies if it should be displayed on the map under the marker. Default: false">
<td>Show point titles:</td>
<td><input id="showPointTitles" type="checkbox" onclick="updateLayer()" /></td>
<tr title="Specifies if the layer is visible or not.">
<td><input id="visible" type="checkbox" onclick="updateLayer()" checked="checked" /></td>
In addition to the options in this tool, the simple data layer also has options for;
<li>popupTemplate - used to customize the layout of content in the popups.</li>
Note that the simple data layer uses style information stored in the properties of individual features to customize how each feature is rendered. The getLayer() function can be used to override this behaviour in the sub-layers.
