Let me begin by saying that the following request is probably unlikely and definitely crazy, but I have been forced to ask anyway. Here goes:
Is there a way via the Web APIs (JS in particular) to suppress the onTimeExtentChange event and ignore the time slider control for certain time-aware layers? What I'm looking to achieve is for certain time-aware layers to always show the features in the latest time slice, regardless of the time slider thumb position. For example, if my layer has features at 0300, 0600, 0900, and 1200, I would only like the time slider to display the features at 1200 for that layer regardless of the thumb position of the time slider.
Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.
