How To: Create multiline labels in ArcGIS Online Map Viewer
In ArcGIS Online Map Viewer, multiline labels can be created using the Arcade custom expression builder. In this article's example, the California_Office_Branches layer contains information on the branches in California, as shown in the attribute table below.
Note: ArcGIS Online Map Viewer Classic does not support multiline labels.
The expression below is used to create a label displaying the Office_Size and Contact_Number field values on two separate lines for each office.
Note: The TextFormatting.NewLine constant inserts a line break between the two fields.
- In ArcGIS Online, open the layer in Map Viewer and enable labeling. For instructions, refer to Steps 1 through 6 of this help document: ArcGIS Online: Apply labels.
- In the Label features pane, click Add label class.
- Under Label field, click the Use expression icon.
- In the editor window, in the Expression box, highlight the content and press Delete to clear the box.
