Interface IMultiLayerFillSymbol

All Superinterfaces:
IFillSymbol, Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
MultiLayerFillSymbol

public interface IMultiLayerFillSymbol
extends IFillSymbol, Serializable

Provides access to members that control the multilayer fill symbol.

Description

IMultiLayerFillSymbol is used for creating composite fill symbols consisting of multiple layers. A layer can be of any type that is supported by the IFillSymbol interface. Use the IFillSymbol interface for setting additional properties.

Method Detail

getLayerCount

int getLayerCount()
                  throws IOException,
                         AutomationException
Symbol layer count.

Description

LayerCount returns the total number of layers currently contained in the IMultiLayerFillSymbol.

Product Availability

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

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Returns:
The count
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

getLayer

IFillSymbol getLayer(int index)
                     throws IOException,
                            AutomationException
Fill symbol per layer position.

Product Availability

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

Parameters:
index - The index (in)
Returns:
A reference to a com.esri.arcgis.display.IFillSymbol
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

addLayer

void addLayer(IFillSymbol fillLayer)
              throws IOException,
                     AutomationException
Add fill symbol layer.

Description

AddLayer adds a single layer to the IMultiLayerFillSymbol. The layer can be of any type supported by the IFillSymbol interface except types implementing IMultiLayerFillSymbol. In this case an E_INVALIDARG HRESULT will be thrown. Therefore, a MultiLayerFillSymbol cannot be imbeded within another MultiLayerFillSymbol.

Product Availability

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

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Parameters:
fillLayer - A reference to a com.esri.arcgis.display.IFillSymbol (in)
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

deleteLayer

void deleteLayer(IFillSymbol fillLayer)
                 throws IOException,
                        AutomationException
Delete fill symbol layer.

Description

DeleteLayer deletes the layer at the given index.

Product Availability

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

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Parameters:
fillLayer - A reference to a com.esri.arcgis.display.IFillSymbol (in)
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

moveLayer

void moveLayer(IFillSymbol fillLayer,
               int toIndex)
               throws IOException,
                      AutomationException
