ESRI SceneControl

Description

The SceneControl encapsulates the SceneViewer class and provides additional properties, methods and events for: managing the general appearance; loading scene documents into the control; managing the scene, scene graph and camera properties, and setting the current tool.

Remarks

There is no need to declare the SceneControl's outbound interface as described below in most development environments, because the interface is automaticlly implemented.

Current active tool for the SceneControl. Set to nothing to clear the tool.

Description

The CurrentTool is the tool used to interact will the SceneControl's display. Always check if a tool is enabled before setting it to the CurrentTool property, otherwise a user will be able to use a tool that is actually disabled.

Remarks

When the CurrentTool is set the following events occur:

  1. The ITool::Deactivate event is triggered on the 'old' CurrentTool if one was set. If this event returns false a trappable error ocurrs. If this event returns true the 'old' CurrentTool is removed and replaced.
  2. The ICommand::OnClick event is triggered on the 'new' CurrentTool and its cursor is picked up.

Within an ITool implementation it is recommended that the ITool::Deactivate event returns true. This allows a 'new' CurrentTool to be set, and allows the release of the CurrentTool when an application is shutting down.

Remarks

When the Navigate property is set to true, the OnMouseDown, OnMouseMove, OnMouseUp events are being intercepted. As such, care must be taken by developers to avoid the display becoming confused when:
