Interface IAnchorPoint

All Superinterfaces:
Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
AnchorPoint

public interface IAnchorPoint
extends Serializable

Provides access to members that control the tracker anchor point.

Description

The anchor point represents a point that can be used when manipulating elements and features. When working with elements, anchor points can be considered a helper object, rather than an essential. You will first need to cocreate the anchor point and then manipulate it. This is useful when implementing your own tools and objects, for example, a custom rotation tool.

Anchor points can be useful in many situations—for rotating elements and features and moving the origin of a text callout.
