I'm exploring different options for creating an offline mobile application with Esri's technologies. The option that fits my needs the best is to use the ArcGIS Runtime SDK with offline maps created with ArcGIS for Desktop(In ArcMap : File->ShareAs->Runtime Content).

The next step is now to automate the Runtime Content creation. Is there a way, using ArcObjects, to create Runtime content programmatically?

There are a couple of ways to automate the runtime content creation:


  • It's the good tool, but I want to be able to call it(or something similar) from an ArcObjects dll

  • Unfortunately it is not support in ArcObjects at this time.

I finally was able to create Runtime Content within ArcObjects. As jdONeil suggested, I used the Create Runtime Content GP tool in conjunction with's arcobject's ability to call a geoprocessing tool.

It worked like a charm!
