Starting with just a basic popup, have a look at this example based on the Jen & Barry’s cities data.
While the popups would work with just the title and content set, the example also sets the fieldInfos property, which is used to format number and date field values. Here, the property is set to an array of two objects. The POPULATION field has its digitSeparator set to true, which adds a separator (e.g., a comma in the U.S., a period in the U.K.) for numbers in the thousands or greater. It also has its places property set to 0 to avoid showing digits after the decimal point. The CRIME_INDE field has its places set to 2 to round its values to the nearest hundredth.
The last important point to note in the example is the setting of the FeatureLayer’s outFields property. This property, set using an array, specifies which fields from the attribute table should be included in the data sent from the server to the client. In this case, the array ["*"] specifies that all fields be included. This is OK when you’re dealing with a small dataset as in this case. For larger datasets, you can improve your map’s load time by limiting the outFields to just the fields needed.
