Name Description
Read-only property LayerID The layer ID of the identified object.
Read-only property Name The name of the identified object.
Read-only property Properties A set of name-value pairs for the field names and values of the identified object.
Read-only property RelatedRows The related rows (relationships) of the identified object.
Read-only property Shape The geometry of the identified object.

Classes that implement IMapServerIdentifyResult

Classes Description
MapServerIdentifyResult The Map Server Identify Result coclass provides information about an 'identify result'.


MapServerIdentifyResult  include a number of properties.  Name returns the value of the primary display field for the feature.  Properties returns a set Field-value pairs. These are returned as strings. This also includes the Shape field. To get geometry do not use the Shape field contained within the Properties' field-value pairs, use the Shape property instead. MapServerIdentifyResult honors field formating, field visibility and field aliases set in the source map document or in the GeoDatabase. If you are interested in information about the layer that the feature belongs to you can use LayerID.

A layer can be related to a table. RelatedRows  returns a collection of MapServerRelationship objects.  IMapServerRelationship  contains the name of the relate and  Rows . This property returns a collection of MapServerRow objects. Using IMapServerRow you can access properties (Name, PropertySet and RelatedRows) of the row of a related table. 

In order to control the amount of information MapServer needs to process for a query, a maximum number of records can be set. This value is contained in the MaxRecordCount property on IMapServerInit2. The default value for this property is 500. If 600 features match a given query only the first 500 results will be returned. You will be unable to access the remaining 100 records. To be able to access these records the MaxRecordCount would need to be increased to 600. The number of rows of a relationship returned is not limited by MaxRecordCount.
