com.esri.arcgis.geodatabase
Interface IFeatureElement

All Superinterfaces:
Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
FeatureElement, IFeatureElementProxy

public interface IFeatureElement
extends Serializable

Provides access to members to return feature element properties.

Remarks

It is recommended that developers do not use Complex Junctions in their data modeling solutions. Developers can leverage existing Geodatabase components in order to implement partial functionality, such as IFeatureClassExtension.

Product Availability

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

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux


Method Summary
 int getElementType()

 IGeometry getGeometry()
          The Geometry of the Feature Element.
 IFeature getOwner()
          The Feature that owns the Feature Element.
 IFeatureElement getParent()
          The Parent of the Feature Element.
