How to access a raster attribute table for an image service

At ArcGIS 10.1, image service supports raster attribute tables on categorical data source. This topic covers how to access raster attribute tables for an image service.

Accessing a raster attribute table for an image service

The following code example shows how to access the attribute table of an image service that serves thematic imagery:
public static IRecordSet GetRasterAttributeTable(IImageServer imageServer)
    //Get raster attribute table.
    IImageServiceInfo3 isInfo=imageServer.ServiceInfo as IImageServiceInfo3;
    if (isInfo.HasRasterAttributeTable)
        return ((IImageServer4)imageServer).RasterAttributeTable;
        return null;
Public Shared Function GetRasterAttributeTable(ByVal imageServer As IImageServer) As IRecordSet
'Get raster attribute table.
Dim isInfo As IImageServiceInfo3=TryCast(imageServer.ServiceInfo, IImageServiceInfo3)
If isInfo.HasRasterAttributeTable Then
    Dim recordSet As IRecordSet=DirectCast(imageServer, IImageServer4).RasterAttributeTable
    Return recordSet
    Return Nothing
End If
End Function
