Interface IFeatureDraw

All Superinterfaces:
Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
AnnotationFeature, ComplexEdgeFeature, ComplexJunctionFeature, CoverageAnnotationFeature, DimensionFeature, EdgeFlagDisplay, Feature, GeocodedFeature, IFeatureDrawProxy, JunctionFlagDisplay, NALocationFeature, NATraversalResultElement, RasterCatalogItem, RelQueryRow, SimpleEdgeFeature, SimpleJunctionFeature, TemporalFeature, TopologyErrorFeature

public interface IFeatureDraw
extends Serializable

Provides access to members that control custom drawing by a feature.

Remarks

The IFeatureDraw interface is only relevant to custom features, and so it is currently limited to C++ programmers. You would implement IFeatureDraw in order to provide a customised display for a feature, for example displaying buildings as points when zoomed out to a small scale, and as polygons at larger scales.
