Using HTML pop-ups for feature layers

This topic describes how to use HTML pop-ups, which can be used to display information about each feature as formatted reports using XML style sheets (XSL) or as HTML displays. This also enables access to HTML Web pages for each feature.

See Setting HTML pop-up properties for feature layers for more information on setting HTML pop-up properties for a layer.

Here are the steps for using HTML pop-ups:

  1. Before you start using HTML pop-ups, ensure that the desired layer is checked on and is visible in the map display.
  2. Select the HTML Pop-up tool HTML Popup on the Tools toolbar.
  3. Click a map feature in the data frame to view its HTML pop-up.
    Click a feature to display its HTML pop-up.
  4. You can continue to click additional features to simultaneously view their pop-ups. The pop-up windows remain open as long as the linked feature is in the visible extent of the current map and the HTML Pop-up tool is active.
