Interface IPointPlacementPriorities

All Superinterfaces:
Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
PointPlacementPriorities

public interface IPointPlacementPriorities
extends Serializable

Provides access to members that control placement position priorities for point labels.

Remarks

The IPointLabelPlacementPriorities interface maintains information about the placement alternatives of labels relative to point features. For example, use this interface to specify whether labels can be placed abobe, below, left or right to points.

Each available position is assigned a weight between 0-9. Zero (0) means that this position is not to be considered at all (blocked), whereas a position assigned the weight one (1) would be tried before two (2) and so on.
