I will create an application that using my water pipes, electric cables, gas pipes service in a city. All of streets and roads including water pipes. My service is publishing pipes. My service like following.

Pipe Service


Feature Layers

  • Pipe Lines (Polyline):
  • Water Valves (Point):

I wanna show pipes on map and users can click on pipes and get features about pipe. Which way can be make sense for this solution? I think use FeatureLayers on map and on click method. How does it affect the performance. If I use ArcgisDynamicMapServiceLayer, I can not click pipes.

You can use a map service but you will have to get the feature info with something like a QueryTask. – blah238 Aug 20 '13 at 14:29

I think the attribute inspector dijit, is what you're searching for.

I suggest looking at the Using the attribute inspector page, all the code you need should be there.
