How To: Modify the look and functionality of the ArcIMS 3.1 Viewers

Summary

The ArcIMS Viewers are customizable.

Procedure

The HTML Viewer is written with HTML/DHTML and JavaScript. The functionality is offered as a library of JavaScript functions that you can reuse or extend.

The Java Viewer consists of Java applets scripted together with HTML and JavaScript. The functionality is offered as an Application Programming Interface (API) available from the Java applet, which you can customize through JavaScript.

You can also use WMS and the ActiveX, ColdFusion, and AppServerLink (JSP) connectors to build custom ArcIMS Viewers.

For information on customizing the HTML and Java Viewers, as well as the ActiveX, ColdFusion, and AppServerLink connectors, see the Customizing ArcIMS series of documents available on the ArcIMS CD. For information on WMS, see Using the WMS Servlet Connector in ArcIMS Help.
