AGSAddressLocator Class

A locator adaptor for the GeocodeServer proxies.

AGSAddressLocator is a non-creatable object. References to non-creatable objects must be obtained through other objects.

Product Availability

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

Description

An AGSAddressLocator is a locator that uses a GeocodeServer over a LAN or over the Internet to geocode addresses.

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.

Remarks

There are certain restrictions on the use of AGSAddressLocators that do not apply to other types of locators.

AGSAddressLocators are retrieved from an AGSLocatorWorkspace, which represents the collection of GeocodeServers made available by an instance of an ArcGIS Server. AGSAddressLocators cannot be added to an AGSLocatorWorkspace, or to any other type of LocatorWorkspace, using ArcObjects. Use the ServerObjectAdmin class to create new instances of GeocodeServers that can be retrieved from an AGSLocatorWorkspace.

GeocodeServers cannot be modified by their clients, so modifying certain writeable properties on interfaces supported by AGSAddressLocators is not supported. These properties are:
