Interface IMeasuredGrid

All Superinterfaces:
Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
Graticule, MeasuredGrid

public interface IMeasuredGrid
extends Serializable

Provides access to the members that control the lines that make up the map grid.

Remarks

The IMeasuredGrid interface is implemented by the MeasuredGrid and Graticule coclasses. It exposes information on the origins, intervals, and units of the grid.

If you set FixedOrigin to False, the origin is computed from the data frame instead of from the XOrigin and YOrigin properties. Defining these properties will shift the grid. For instance you can create a grid with a 10 interval showing on meridians 5, 15, 25, etc. by shifting the grid 5 in X.

Units need not be populated for a graticule. For a measured grid they can be set to any esriUnits constant, if this is not specified the map units will be used.

The XIntervalSize and YIntervalSize properties define the spacing of the meridians and parallels of the grid.
