Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.

Description

The SimpleMarkerSymbol is used to create a marker symbol comprised of a predefinded set of styles. The SimpleMarkerSymbol determines the shape of the simple symbol and also its outline characteristics.

The Style property determines the basic shape of the symbol and can be set to one of five basic shapes using the esriSimpleMarkerStyle constants. These simple shapes can be enhanced with outlines. Try setting the Outline property to True and setting and IColor onto the OutlineColor property.

The OutlineSize property determines the thickness of the outline in printer's points. Bear in mind that the outline is drawn on top of the symbol and will overlap the symbol by half its thickness. By default, a simple marker symbol will be a circle with no outline. The default OutlineColor is black, and the default OutlineSize is 0.
