extends com.esri.arcgis.interop.Ocx
implements com.esri.arcgis.interop.RemoteObjRef, ISymbologyControlDefault, ISymbologyControl, IConnectionPointContainer, IPersistStreamInit, IPersist, ISupportErrorInfo

Provides access to the ESRI SymbologyControl.

Description

The SymbologyControl provides properties, methods and events for: managing the general appearance; loading symbology from within Server Style files; Style files (if ArcGIS Desktop is installed), managing symbology within each style class; and setting the current style class.

Server Styles are collections of symbols and map elements that are often grouped by functionality. For example, symbols and map elements used by the transportation industry maybe grouped into a Transportation Server Style.

Server Styles are stored in files that have a .ServerStyle extension. ESRI provides several styles for you to use out of the box. These styles are found under \\install_location\ArcGIS\Styles. You will find commonly used symbols and map elements in ESRI.ServerStyle, and more domain specific style items in relevantly named .ServerStyle files (for example, Transportation.ServerStyle).

A style is composed of several style items. These style items provide access to individual map elements and symbols. Style items are organized into style classes, which are types of style items. A style class may have several groups of items organized into categories. For example, Precipitation is style item that belongs to the Color Ramps style class and the Default Ramps category.

The MouseIcon property provides a custom icon that is used when the MousePointer property is set to esriPointerArrowHourglass (99).

Remarks

Many development environment containers use the up, down, left and right arrow keys to change control focus on a form. These keys can also be useful for navigating around the display. To intercept the arrow keys and the Tab key combine the enum values using a logical OR operation (esriKeyInterceptArrowKeys OR esriKeyInterceptTabKey, which is 1 OR 4 = 5).

loadStyleFile

public void loadStyleFile(String fileName)
                   throws IOException,
                          AutomationException
Loads a server style file into the SymbologyControl.

Description

Loads the contents of the specified server style file (*.ServerStyle) into the SymbologyControl. Each ServerStyleGalleryItem within the server style file is added to a SymbologyStyleClass based on its type. For example, a SimpleFillSymbol will be added to the esriStyleClassFillSymbols SymbologyStyleClass.

Items are 'demand loaded' to the end of a SymbologyStyleClass item collection. This is done to increase performance and means items are only loaded into a SymbologyStyleClass when it is the current StyleClass or when the SymbologyStyleClass is being accessed programmatically. To force items to be loaded into a SymbologyStyleClass, when it is not the current StyleClass use the ISymbologyStyleClass::Update method.

Passing the same server style file to the LoadStyleFile method multiple times within the lifetime of an application, causes the contents of the server style file to be re-loaded into the SymbologyControl.

Remarks

Server Styles are collections of symbols and map elements that are often grouped by functionality. For example, symbols and map elements used by the transportation industry maybe grouped into Transportation Server Style.

Server Styles are stored in files that have a .ServerStyle extension. ESRI provides several styles for you to use out of the box. These styles are found under \\install_location\ArcGIS\Styles. You will find commonly used symbols and map elements in ESRI.ServerStyle, and more domain specific style items in relevantly named .ServerStyle files (for example, Transportation.ServerStyle).

A style is composed of several style items. These style items provide access to individual map elements and symbols. Style items are organized into style classes, which are types of style items. A style class may have several groups of items organized into categories. For example, Precipitation is style item that belongs to the Color Ramps style class and the Default Ramps category.

Parameters:
fileName - The fileName (in)
Throws:

loadDesktopStyleFile

public void loadDesktopStyleFile(String fileName)
                          throws IOException,
                                 AutomationException
Loads a desktop style file into the SymbologyControl.

Description

Loads the contents of the specified style file (*.Style) into the SymbologyControl. Where possible always use the LoadStyleFile method to load the contents of server style files (*.ServerStyle) into the SymbologyControl, as style files are only supported with an ArcGIS Desktop installation.

Each StyleGalleryItem within the style file is added to a SymbologyStyleClass based on its type. For example, a SimpleFillSymbol will be added to the esriStyleClassFillSymbols SymbologyStyleClass .

Items are 'demand loaded' to the end of a SymbologyStyleClass item collection. This is done to increase performance and means items are only loaded into a SymbologyStyleClass when it is the current StyleClass or when the SymbologyStyleClass is being accessed programmatically. To force items to be loaded into a SymbologyStyleClass, when it is not the current StyleClass use the ISymbologyStyleClass::Update method.

Passing the same style file to the LoadDesktopStyleFile method multiple times within the lifetime of an application, causes the contents of the style file to be re-loaded into the SymbologyControl.

Remarks

A 'desktop' Style file is similar to a Server Style file, except is has a .Style extension rather than a .ServerStyle extension. Style files are available to ArcGIS Desktop products only, whereas Server Style files are available to all ArcGIS products.
