A marker symbol comprised of a predefined set of styles.

Description

The SimpleMarkerSymbol is used to create a marker symbol comprised of a predefinded set of styles. The SimpleMarkerSymbol determines the shape of the simple symbol and also its outline characteristics.

The Style property determines the basic shape of the symbol and can be set to one of five basic shapes using the esriSimpleMarkerStyle constants. These simple shapes can be enhanced with outlines. Try setting the Outline property to True and setting and IColor onto the OutlineColor property.

The OutlineSize property determines the thickness of the outline in printer's points. Bear in mind that the outline is drawn on top of the symbol and will overlap the symbol by half its thickness. By default, a simple marker symbol will be a circle with no outline. The default OutlineColor is black, and the default OutlineSize is 0.

canApply

public boolean canApply(Object pUnk)
                 throws IOException,
                        AutomationException
Indicates if the receiver can apply the given object at that particular moment.

Remarks

CanApply indicates whether the specified object can be applied to the current object. For instance, we might want to ask our CircleElement whether a Color object applies to it. If it does, then we can use the Apply method to update our CircleElement with the new Color object.

CanApply differs from Applies in that it is a check for the editability of the object at any given time. Applies indicates whether an object can be applied at all, while CanApply indicates whether an object can be applied at that particular moment.

Specified by:
canApply in interface IPropertySupport
Parameters:
pUnk - A reference to another Object (IUnknown) (in)
Returns:
The canApply
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

getCurrent

public Object getCurrent(Object pUnk)
                  throws IOException,
                         AutomationException
The object currently being used.

Product Availability

Parameters:
pUnk - A reference to another Object (IUnknown) (in)
Returns:
A reference to another Object (IUnknown)
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

apply

public Object apply(Object newObject)
             throws IOException,
                    AutomationException
Applies the given property to the receiver and returns the old object.

Remarks

Apply will apply the specified object to the current object. For instance, I might apply a Color object to my RectangleElement. When I execute Apply, the object I replace (the old object) is returned.

Use the Applies and CanApply methods to determine if an Apply can be used on an object.
