Support for CartographicLineSymbols

Discussion created by schinks on May 18, 2012
Hi,

As far as I can tell, the REST API does not support CartoGraphicLineSymbols.  Is this true, and if so are there plans to add support in a future version?  I am trying to find a way to retrieve line symbols from a map service (as json) but the map service only provides simple line symbols, even for those that are CartograhicLineSymbols.  For example, a map service has a symbol for "Fence" which is a line with "X" placed on the line at certain intervals.  However the json for that symbol comes back as a solid black line with no X's.  Is there a way to retrieve the more complex symbol via the REST API?  I want to retrieve the symbol so that I can apply it to a graphic in a GraphicsLayers.

Thanks,
Cory
