Interface IOutputContext

All Superinterfaces:
Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
OutputContext

public interface IOutputContext
extends Serializable

Provides access to members that allow to manage the geometry transformation from the map context to the ouput device.

Remarks

OutputContext is used to trasform geometries from Map reference frame to Output reference frame. Use IMapContext to convert all geometries from geographic units to map units before passing them to the OutputContext for display/printing.

Product Availability

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


Method Summary

 void init(double refScale, double currentScale, double resolution, double rotation, IPoint currentScreenCenter, tagRECT deviceRect, int outputDevice)
          Initializes the output context.
 void setTrackCancel(ITrackCancel trackCancel)
