Interface IFeatureClassName

All Superinterfaces:
Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
CoverageFeatureClassName, FeatureClassName, FeatureQueryName, FgdbFeatureClassName, RasterCatalogName, RouteEventSourceName, XYEventSourceName

public interface IFeatureClassName
extends Serializable

Provides access to members that return information about the feature class.

Remarks

The IFeatureClassName includes the FeatureType, the ShapeType, the ShapeFieldName, and the name object for the parent feature dataset in the case of feature classes that are contained within a feature dataset. Note that this last property is null for standalone feature classes.

When To Use

Use the IFeatureClassName object when you are looking for feature classes and you want basic information about the feature class like shape field name and shape type for a feature class.
