ArcGIS API for Silverlight using C#

Mar 6, 2013 at 6:50 PM
Two questions hopefully someone can help answer -

Is it possible to set up a feature service without features? Similar to when you would create a feature class with dedicated symbology and then create the features at another time. We are looking to have our users of the web application be able to create features themselves and then have the ability to edit as needed. Is this possible? Do we need to have at least one feature exist in order to do this?

We would like to have the ability to have users select their own geographic extent (limiting it to the contiguous US) after they logon to the application. My thought process is that it would be similar to the bookmark code where a min, max would be held under a particular title. Is this possible to do and save to a database on the server, rather than within the Bookmark widget?

Thank you in advance.

This forum is for discussing the ESRI Silverlight Toolkit. General ArcGIS Server questions are probably better answered in the ArcGIS Server forums (but to answer your questions, yes you can have an empty service to begin with).
Not sure about your second question, but again the ArcGIS Silverlight forum might be a better place that that question as well.
