The valid property indicates if the layer is currently valid. Layers that reference feature classes are valid when they hold a reference to a valid feature class. The property does not however validate the integrity of the feature classes reference to the database. Therefore, in rare situations if a datasource is removed after a layer is initialized, the layer will report itself as valid but query attempts to the data source will error due to the lack of underlying data.

The spatial reference of the GeoDataset.

Remarks

This property is read only. For layers, when the first layer is added to ArcMap, its spatial reference is read by this property, and the map is set to this spatial reference.

Instances of the esriCarto.GroupLayer class will return null for this property, as a group layer can contain multiple datasets with different spatial references.

Modifications to a spatial reference returned by this property will not be persisted. To modify the spatial reference of a dataset, the IGeoDatasetSchemaEdit and IGeoDatasetSchemaEdit2 interfaces should be used.

Product Availability

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

Supported Platforms

getExtent

public IEnvelope getExtent()
                    throws IOException,
                           AutomationException
The extent of the GeoDataset.

Remarks

The IGeoDataset::Extent property returns an envelope representing the maximum extent of data which has been stored in the dataset.

Consider the following scenario. A new feature class has features added to it. The IGeoDataset::Extent is then requested and an envelope is returned. The extents of the envelope returned are represented by the red box in the image below.

The red box represents the IGeoDataset extent

If a portion of the features were then deleted and the extent is again requested an envelope with the exact same extents as during the first request would be returned (see image below). This is because the deletion of features does not shrink the extent. However all additions of features outside the red box would increase the envelope returned to encompass the newly added features.

The red box represents the IGeoDataset extent after some of the features have been deleted

If you would like to update the IGeoDataset::Extent property to reflect the current features in your dataset please see IFeatureClassManage::UpdateExtent (also see IFeatureClassLoad). In the image below the extent has been updated and a new envelope is being returned.

The red box represents the IGeoDataset extent after it has been updated

ESRI's GroupLayer implements this property differently from most other layer coclasses. When you instantiate a new GroupLayer, this property will return a valid envelope with zero height and width. With most other newly instantiated layers (for example FeatureLayer, RasterLayer, TinLayer), this property initally returns Nothing.

identify

public IArray identify(IGeometry pGeom)
                throws IOException,
                       AutomationException
Identifies objects at the specified location.

Remarks

When the IIdentify interface is on a map layer, the Identify method returns an array of FeatureIdentifyObject objects.

On a FeatureIdentifyObject, you can do a QI to the IIdentifyObj interface to get more information about the identified feature. The IIdentifyObj interface returns the window handle, layer, and name of the feature; it has methods to flash the feature in the display and to display a context menu at the Identify location.

This method performs an identify operation with the provided geometry. When identifying layers, typically a small envelope is passed in rather than a point to account for differences in the precision of the display and the feature geometry.

                                  AutomationException
Creates a cursor from the display table based upon the search criteria.

Description

QueryFilter specifies an IQueryFilterObject to be used for the search.

Recycling specifies whether the resulting cursor is recycling or non-recycling. Use True for recycling cursor and False for a non-recycling cursor.

Remarks

If there is a definition query set on the layer or table, the SearchDisplayTable method will work on the subset of rows that meet the definition criteria. Otherwise, it will search the whole table.

SearchDisplayTable will return an ICursor with all of the rows that satisfy some attribute and/or spatial query as specified by an IQueryFilter object. If Nothing is given as the IQueryFilter, then the cursor will have all of the rows from the table.

This SearchDisplayTable method will also work on joined fields if you qualify the field names. For example, if you want to search a field called "Pop1990" from a joined table called "Demog", you should used "Demog.Pop1990" for the field name in the query filter used in the search method.

The Recycling parameter controls row object allocation behavior. Recycling cursors rehydrate a single row object on each fetch and can be used to optimize read-only access, for example, when drawing. It is illegal to maintain a reference on a row object returned by a recycling cursor across multiple calls to NextRow on the cursor. Row objects returned by a recycling cursor should not be modified.

Non-recycling cursors return a separate row object on each fetch. The objects returned by a non-recycling cursor may be modified and stored with polymorphic behavior. The geodatabase guarantees 'unique instance semantics' on non-recycling feature objects fetched during an edit session.

Recycling cursors should be used only for drawing and read-only access to object state. Use non-recycling search cursors to fetch objects that are to be updated.

Layer or renderer legend information is further formatted for display in ArcMap legends. A renderer can override this formatting by returning a LegendItem for this property. ESRI renderers typically do not return anything for this property. With this configuration, legend formatting becomes a user or developer choice on the legend object.

The set of properties for the dataset.

Description

The PropertySet property is used to return any additional intrinsic properties (but not metadata properties) that may apply to the dataset. One use of this property is to distinguish between the types of File Geodatabase datafile formats. If called on a Feature Class or Table in a File Geodatabase the Datafile Format property can either be esriFGDBStandardDatafile or esriFGDBCompressedDatafile.

Most datasets do not implement this property and will either raise an error or return a null value if it's called. There are a handful of exceptions that will return property sets; these include the datasets from file geodatabases (as mentioned above) and coverages.

Remarks

Examples of intrinsic properties for which explicit methods exist include the SpatialReference and the Extent methods available on the IGeoDataset interface. In most cases this PropertySet will be empty.

IDataset::PropertySet is not supported for Graph objects such as a Geometric Network.
