I've been messing with ArcGIS Mobile and I get that it loads and caches layers from an ArcGIS Server for disconnected use. I'm wondering if it supports layers where data is loaded from a layer in realtime? I can't find any examples where I create a layer, give it a URL and have it load imagery data as I pan the map.

  • @PolyGeo That only means it's old: lack of activity is hardly a relevant criterion to determine whether a thread may be on topic.

  • @whuber I agree - "off topic" was poor choice of wording inserted by the only close choice that offered free format reason - question clearly is on-topic so I have retracted my close vote.
