Cannot buffer ArcMap Service event layer features using HTML client


** This issue has been resolved in ArcGIS 9.0. **

Event layers are based on tabular data. Events are plotted on a map using either x/y or route location field values stored in the event table. Route events can be either point events or line events. The process of displaying route events on a map is known as 'dynamic segmentation'.

Event layers, however, cannot be buffered when using an HTML client.


This is a known issue.


In order to buffer an event layer use an ArcIMS client other than HTML.
