Interface IDimensionClassExtension

All Superinterfaces:
Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
DimensionClassExtension

public interface IDimensionClassExtension
extends Serializable

Provides access to members that control the dimension class extension for a dimension feature class.

Description

The IDimensionClassExtension interface provides access to the DimensionStyles collection and the reference scale drawing properties.

Remarks

After making changes to any of the IDimensionClassExtension properties, it is necessary to call the UpdateProperties() method. Changes can also be discarded by calling the ResetProperties() method if UpdateProperties() has not be called. As with any schema related modifications, an exclusive schema lock should be obtained on the feature class before calling UpdateProperties().

Product Availability

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

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Product Availability

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

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Returns:
A reference to a com.esri.arcgis.carto.IDimensionStyles
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

updateProperties

void updateProperties()
                      throws IOException,
                             AutomationException
Updates the dimension featrue class' properties.

Remarks

As with any schema related modifications, an exclusive schema lock should be obtained on the feature class before calling UpdateProperties().

Product Availability

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

resetProperties

void resetProperties()
                     throws IOException,
                            AutomationException
Resets the in state of the dimension feature class properties.

Remarks

As with any schema related modifications, an exclusive schema lock should be obtained on the feature class before calling ResetProperties().

Product Availability

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

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

getReferenceScale

double getReferenceScale()
                         throws IOException,
                                AutomationException
The reference scale of the dimension feature class.

Remarks

The ReferenceScale property defines the scale at which symbols are drawn at their defined size. The ReferenceScaleUnits property is only used when the Dimension FeatureClass’s spatial reference is Unknown. Changing the ReferenceScale after the FeatureClass contains Features is not recommend as those Features’ geometries are controlled by the ReferenceScale property.

Product Availability

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

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Returns:
The scale
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

setReferenceScale

void setReferenceScale(double scale)
                       throws IOException,
                              AutomationException
The reference scale of the dimension feature class.

Remarks

The ReferenceScale property defines the scale at which symbols are drawn at their defined size. Changing the ReferenceScale after the FeatureClass contains Features is not recommend as those Features’ geometries are controlled by the ReferenceScale property.
