IDataset (esriGeoDatabase) Provides access to members that supply dataset information.
IDisplayAdmin (esriDisplay) Provides access to members that control display administration.
IDisplayFilterManager (esriDisplay) Provides access to members that control display filter management.
IGeoDataset (esriGeoDatabase) Provides access to members that provide information about a Geographic Dataset.
IIdentify Provides access to members that identify features.
IIdentify2 Provides access to members that set the current scale of the display.

ILayerExtensions Provides access to the extensions of a layer.
ILayerGeneralProperties Provides access to layer general properties.
ILayerInfo Provides access to members that return layer images.
ILayerPosition Provides access to members that control a layer's default position in the map interface.
ILegendInfo Provides access to members that control legend information provided by a renderer.
IMapLevel (esriDisplay) Provides access to members that control the map level.

INetworkRendererCollection Provides access to members that manage the collection of network renderers.
IPersistStream (esriSystem)
IPropertySupport (esriSystem) Provides access to members that set a default property on an object.
IPublishLayer Provides access to a layer's capability for being published with the ArcGIS Publisher extension.
ITimeData Provides access to time related properties of a layer.
ITimeData2 Provides access to time related properties of a layer.
ITimeDataCustomUI Provides access to interface that indicates if a layer has a associated UI of its own.
ITimeDataDisplay Provides access to time animation related properties of a layer.

Remarks

The NetworkLayer is a type of Layer in the Map that holds a reference to a NetworkDataset.  You can open its network dataset by calling INetworkLayer::NetworkDataset.

[C#]

The following code shows how to open a shapefile network dataset, then add it to a Map using a NetworkLayer:

void AddNetworkLayer(string shapefilePath, string networkDatasetName, IMap map)
{ IWorkspaceFactory workspaceFactory=new ShapefileWorkspaceFactoryClass() as IWorkspaceFactory;

IWorkspace workspace=workspaceFactory.OpenFromFile(sShapefilePath, 0);
IWorkspaceExtensionManager wsExtMgr=workspace as IWorkspaceExtensionManager;
UID myUID=New UIDClass(); myUID.Value="esriGeoDatabase.NetworkDatasetWorkspaceExtension"; IWorkspaceExtension wsExt=wsExtMgr.FindExtension(myUID); IDatasetContainer2 dsCont=wsExt as IDatasetContainer2;
IDataset dataset=dsCont.DatasetByName(esriDTNetworkDataset, networkDatasetName)
INetworkDataset networkDataset=dataset as INetworkDataset;
INetworkLayer networkLayer=New NetworkLayerClass();
networkLayer.NetworkDataset=networkDataset;
map.AddLayer(networkLayer);
}
[Visual Basic .NET]

The following code shows how to open a shapefile network dataset, then add it to a Map using a NetworkLayer:

Sub AddNetworkLayer(shapefilePath As String, networkDatasetName As String, map As IMap)
  Dim workspaceFactory As IWorkspaceFactory=New ShapefileWorkspaceFactory

Dim workspace As IWorkspace=workspaceFactory.OpenFromFile(sShapefilePath, 0)
Dim wsExtMgr As IWorkspaceExtensionManager=CType(workspace, IWorkspaceExtensionManager)
Dim myUID As New UID myUID.Value="esriGeoDatabase.NetworkDatasetWorkspaceExtension" Dim wsExt As IWorkspaceExtension=wsExtMgr.FindExtension(myUID) Dim dsCont As IDatasetContainer2=CType(wsExt, IDatasetContainer2)
Dim dataset As IDataset=dsCont.DatasetByName(esriDTNetworkDataset, networkDatasetName)
Dim networkDataset As INetworkDataset=CType(dataset, INetworkDataset)
Dim networkLayer As INetworkLayer=New NetworkLayer
networkLayer.NetworkDataset=networkDataset
map.AddLayer(networkLayer)
End Sub
