Run a predefined query

A map author can include a predefined query to make it easier for users to view particular subsets of a map's data. For example, on a map of earthquakes, the author could include a predefined query that lets a user input a magnitude, then see only earthquakes of that magnitude or greater. These queries can be executed using ArcGIS for Windows Phone by taking the following steps:

  1. Open a map containing a predefined query.
  2. Tap the contents icon contents icon on the app bar to display the map contents.

    The Map Contents pivot displays on the layers panel.

  3. Swipe to the extras panel.
  4. Under Queries defined in this map tap Select to display the list of available queries.
    Screen shot of Predefined Queries page.
  5. Tap a query to execute it.
  6. If the query has no parameters, it executes. If the query was authored with parameters, you will be prompted for values for the parameters. Enter the information and tap accept accept icon on the app bar to execute the query.
