GlobeControl CoClass

ESRI GlobeControl

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine.

Description

The GlobeControl encapsulates the GlobeViewer class and provides additional properties, methods and events for: managing the general appearance; loading globe documents into the control; managing the globe, globe display and globe camera properties, and setting the current tool. 

Extended Error Information

Use the ISupportErrorInfo method InterfaceSupportsErrorInfo to determine if the object supports extended error information. If the object supports extended error info, VC++ developers should use the OLE/COM IErrorInfo interface to access the ErrorInfo object. Visual Basic developers should use the global error object Err to retrieve this extended error information.

Interfaces

Interfaces Description
IConnectionPointContainer Supports connection points for connectable objects.
IGlobeControl Provides access to members that control the GlobeControl.
IGlobeControlDefault Provides access to members that control the GlobeControl.
IPersist Defines the single method GetClassID, which is designed to supply the CLSID of an object that can be stored persistently in the system. IPersist is the base interface for three other interfaces: IPersistStorage, IPersistStream, and IPersistFile.
IPersistStreamInit Supports initialized stream-based persistence, regardless of whatever else the object does.
ISupportErrorInfo Indicates whether a specific interface can return Automation error objects.
ITOCBuddy Provides access to members that control the TOC buddy.
ITOCBuddy2 Provides access to members that control the TOC buddy.
IToolbarBuddy Provides access to members that control the ToolbarControl buddy.

Event Interfaces

Interfaces Description
IGlobeControlEvents (default) Provides access to events that occur with user interaction to the GlobeControl.
ITOCBuddyEvents Provides access to events that notify the TOC of a change.

Remarks

There is no need to declare the GlobeControl's outbound interface as described below in most development environments, because the interface is automaticlly implemented.

[Visual Basic 6.0]

To create a GlobeControl programmatically use the following code:

Dim pGlobeControl As esriControls.IGlobeControl 
Set pGlobeControl = CreateObject("esriControls.GlobeControl")

Working with Events

[Visual Basic 6.0]

When working with GlobeControl's default outbound interface in Visual Basic 6 declare variables as follows:

Private WithEvents pGlobeControl as GlobeControl

When implementing ITOCBuddyEvents declare variables as follows:

Private WithEvents pMapControl as MapControl
