Frequently asked question

Are there any limitations when using the ActiveX Connector with ArcMap Server?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


The ActiveX Connector was not designed to work with ArcMap Server.

The ActiveX Connector API can be used with an ArcMap service to

· generate a basic map
· change layer visibility
· zoom in and out
· pan
· filter a recordset or layer.

In addition, the following tasks can be accomplished by sending raw ArcXML using the ArcIMSConnector.SendAxlRequest() method:

· adding an acetate layer
· buffering.
Due to limitations of ArcMap Server, the ActiveX Connector cannot be used with an ArcMap service to

· change the rendering of a symbol
· extract a layer to a shapefile
· geocode.
