Changing the image used by a PictureMarkerSymbol using the setImage method does not change the size of the symbol in the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Qt.

Additional Information

With 10.2.x, just because the image setter is called a second time, does not mean the width and height setters will be called again. In any case, this situation will be avoided at the Quartz release, as there will be no default constructor. You will have to pass in a QImage or QUrl in the constructor, so to switch out the image, you will need to create a new PictureMarkerSymbol.


Use the setHeight and setWidth methods to change the dimensions of the symbol.
