ESRI.ArcGIS.Client Namespace > ArcGISDynamicMapServiceLayer Class : CopyrightText Property

Gets the copyright text information of an ArcGIS Server based ArcGISDynamicMapServiceLayer web service.

Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Public ReadOnly Property CopyrightText As String
C# 
public string CopyrightText {get;}

Remarks

When authoring an ArcGISDynamicMapServiceLayer in ArcMap to publish an ArcGIS Server web service, the CopyrightText information is set in the Credits section on the General tab of the Data Frame Properties dialog. See the following ArcMap screen shot:

Setting the ArcGISDynamicMapServiceLayer.CopyrightText in Credits section of the Data Frame Properties dialog of ArcMap.

Example

How to use:

When the ArcGISDynamicMapServiceLayer Initializes the CopyrightText will be automatically populated in the TextBlock.

The XAML code in this example is used in conjunction with the code-behind (C# or VB.NET) to demonstrate the functionality.

The following screen shot corresponds to the code example in this page.

Showing the CopyrightText of an ArcGISDynamicMapServiceLayer.

<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot">
  
  <!-- Add a Map Control. Set its Initial Extent to Iowa. -->
  <esri:Map Background="White" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="0,180,0,0" Name="Map1" 
          VerticalAlignment="Top" Height="300" Width="400" Extent="-96.89,39.47,-89.91,44.70">

  </esri:Map>
  
  <!-- CopyrightText (Read Only). -->
  <sdk:Label Height="24" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="0,88,0,0" Name="Label_CopyrightText"

  <!-- 
  As an alternative you could bind the ArcGISDynamicMapServiceLayer.CopyrightText directly to the
  TextBox.Text Property and not need to put any code in the code-behind for the 
  ArcGISDynamicMapServiceLayer.Initialized Event.
  -->

           VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="400" Text="{Binding ElementName=Map1, Path=Layers[0].CopyrightText}"/>-->
  
  <!-- Provide the instructions on how to use the sample code. -->
  <TextBlock Height="52" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Name="TextBlock1" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="400"
