Time For Action – working with attribute replacement

Let's demonstrate how to use attribute replacement to change the style of features based on their attribute.

  1. Make a copy of the previous example. We'll be changing it slightly to demonstrate attribute replacement. To do so, we'll first need to give our features some attributes that we can access. Modify the addFeature code in the for loop to add attributes as follows:
    for(var i=0; i<10; i++){ vector_layer.addFeatures([new OpenLayers.Feature.Vector( new OpenLayers.Geometry.Point( (Math.floor(Math.random() * 360) - 180), (Math.floor(Math.random() * 180) - 90) ), { //Attributes go here size: 5 + (Math.floor(Math.random() * 20)), label: 'F' + i, strokeWidth: (Math.floor(Math.random() * 10)) } )]); ...
