This sample shows how to monitor the maps style and update the style of a layer accordingly.
The map monitors the 'styledata' event to keep track of when the base map style changes.
In this sample a symbol layer is updated such that when the map style is dark, a yellow icon
with black text is displayed, when the map style is light, a blue icon with white text is displayed.
