Interface IMapServerLegendInfo

All Superinterfaces:
Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
MapServerLegendInfo

public interface IMapServerLegendInfo
extends Serializable

Provides access to the Map Server Legend Info Interface.

Remarks

MapServerLegendInfo objects are the result of a GetLegendInfo method on IMapServer. Legends are associated with renderers that belong to each layer in a map. Each layer has a separate renderer. Each renderer has one or more legend groups. Each legend group has one or more legend classes.

MapServerLegendInfo doesn't contain information about whether the data frame and the layers in the TOC are expanded or collapsed in the original map document. You have to write your own code to find this out.

When To Use

Use IMapServerLegendInfo to retrieve individual legend elements including the symbol image, labels, descriptions and headings. A common use would be to populate a table of contents. To export a single image of the legend use ExportLegend on IMapServerLayout.
