Class: Vector

ol.layer.Vector


import Vector from 'ol/layer/vector';

Vector data that is rendered client-side. Note that any property set in the options is set as a ol.Object property on the layer object; for example, setting title: 'My Title' in the options means that title is observable, and has get/set accessors.

new ol.layer.Vector(opt_options)

src/ol/layer/vector.js, line 23
Name Type Description
options

Options.

Name Type Description
renderOrder ol.RenderOrderFunction | null | undefined

Render order. Function to be used when sorting features before rendering. By default features are drawn in the order that they are created. Use null to avoid the sort, but get an undefined draw order.

map ol.PluggableMap | undefined

Sets the layer as overlay on a map. The map will not manage this layer in its layers collection, and the layer will be rendered on top. This is useful for temporary layers. The standard way to add a layer to a map and have it managed by the map is to use ol.Map#addLayer.

extent ol.Extent | undefined

The bounding extent for layer rendering. The layer will not be rendered outside of this extent.

minResolution number | undefined

The minimum resolution (inclusive) at which this layer will be visible.

maxResolution number | undefined

The maximum resolution (exclusive) below which this layer will be visible.

opacity number | undefined

Opacity. 0-1. Default is 1.

renderBuffer number | undefined

The buffer around the viewport extent used by the renderer when getting features from the vector source for the rendering or hit-detection. Recommended value: the size of the largest symbol, line width or label. Default is 100 pixels.

source ol.source.Vector

Source. Required.

declutter boolean | undefined

Declutter images and text. Decluttering is applied to all image and text styles, and the priority is defined by the z-index of the style. Lower z-index means higher priority. Default is false.

style ol.style.Style | Array.<ol.style.Style> | ol.StyleFunction | undefined

Layer style. See ol.style for default style which will be used if this is not defined.

updateWhileAnimating boolean | undefined

When set to true, feature batches will be recreated during animations. This means that no vectors will be shown clipped, but the setting will have a performance impact for large amounts of vector data. When set to false, batches will be recreated when no animation is active. Default is false.

updateWhileInteracting boolean | undefined

When set to true, feature batches will be recreated during interactions. See also updateWhileAnimating. Default is false.

visible boolean | undefined

Visibility. Default is true (visible).

zIndex number | undefined

The z-index for layer rendering. At rendering time, the layers will be ordered, first by Z-index and then by position. The default Z-index is 0.

See ol.style for information on the default style.
