Service Feature Table (Cache)

Screenshot of Service Feature Table Cache App


This sample demonstrates how to use a feature service with a service feature table in on-interaction-cache mode (which is the default mode for service feature tables).

How it Works

Set the ServiceFeatureTable.FeatureRequestMode property of the service feature table to ON_INTERACTION_CACHE before the table is loaded. The mode cannot be changed once the table has been loaded.
