Interface IAnnotateFeature

All Superinterfaces:
Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
AnnotateFeature, MaplexAnnotateFeature

public interface IAnnotateFeature
extends Serializable

Provides access to members that control the labeling (annotation) of one feature.

Superseded By

IAnnotateFeature2

Description

IAnnotateFeature provides access to method Label of the AnnotateFeature object. This object is used for low level generation of text elements at the feature level and is not intended to be used in a loop to generate text for an entire layer or map. IAnnotateFeature2 has superseded IAnnotateFeature due to the additional support for OverposterProperties.

Example:

// Assume we have an IAnnotationFeature reference (pAnnoFeature);
IAnnotationFeature pAnnoFeature = null;
IElement pElement = pAnnoFeature.getAnnotation();
if(pElement instanceof ITextElement)
{
ITextElement pTextElement = new ITextElementProxy(pElement);
pTextElement.setText("foo");
pAnnoFeature.setAnnotation(pElement);
IFeature pFeature = new IFeatureProxy(pAnnoFeature);
pFeature.store();
}
