How to show parcel boundary / polygon dimensions using geometry services

I'm trying to create a button in my application which will enable me to select a parcel in a parcel layer, then will create labels around the polygon marking the lengths of each side and the angles.

I've already managed to calculate the lengths of each side by breaking the polygon of the parcel into polylines, measuring the difference between each ring in the polygon (essentially each vertex).

However, I'm completely lost as to how to label these lines with the length I've measured.

The easiest solution would have been, ofcourse, if there was some way to use the MeasureAction using the polygon rings as the vertices. However, from what I gather, it's impossible, right?

So now I'm left with a way to label those polylines - can anyone help?

Thanks in advance,
