I have 2 annotated layers which I load in a BaseMapLayerClass. When the map is static the annotations are visible. When I enable DynamicMap I lose all annotations. I would like a way to annotate layers in a BaseMapLayerClass while dynamic is enabled.
An interesting note about the problem. If I don't have my layers in a BaseMapLayerClass, dynamic display does not affect my annotations.
However I would like them to be in a BaseMapLayerClass because would make it much easier for me to save layers and restore them across sessions.
I'm using ArcEngine C# VS2010
I think the problem is somehow related to extents.
Led me to the limitations page http://edndoc.esri.com/arcobjects/9.2/NET/0b062497-a3fc-4c56-a688-0fb9b2fcb4ea.htm
which states :
Labels will be cut off on custom layers that don't return the correct extent
And actually it's weird. Sometimes the annotations will draw and then I'll move the map up a few pixels with the hand tool, and then they will no longer draw. Then move it back a few pixels and it will draw again.
It's helpful there is a consistency there, but I haven't a clue how to implement a workaround.
