    What's New in ArcFM Web 4.6.2


    ArcFM Web is built on HTML5 and Javascript. This modern web technology has great cross-platform capabilities, allowing ArcFM Web to work on all major devices and browsers. For most customers, ArcFM Web can be a replacement for your current ArcFM Silverlight web viewer. The first release of ArcFM Web in November 2015, showcased the rich functionality that is provided by the Geocortex Essentials base product.


    The following features and capabilities were added in ArcFM Web 4.6.2:

    ArcFM Web Core:

    • Tested to be compatible with ArcGIS 10.4.1:
      • ArcGIS for Server
      • Portal for ArcGIS
    • Administrators can now configure Time Sliders. The viewer uses these configurations to present a Time Slider control that allows the end user to change the time extent of the map.
    • Administrators can now create Layer Catalogs sites that allow end users to add layers on the fly.
    • Administrators can now manage Trusted URLs and Cross Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) configuration settings.
    • Administrators can now use “Previous” and “Next” buttons in to navigate through collections of configurable items. For example, Data Connections, Map Services, Print Templates and Search Tables.

      • Display Result Picker activity supports a new FeatureSet output argument.
