Interface INetworkAttribute

All Superinterfaces:
Serializable
All Known Subinterfaces:
IEvaluatedNetworkAttribute, IEvaluatedNetworkAttribute2, INetworkAttribute2
All Known Implementing Classes:
EvaluatedNetworkAttribute, INetworkAttribute2Proxy, INetworkAttributeProxy, NetworkAttribute, SDCNetworkAttribute

public interface INetworkAttribute
extends Serializable

Provides access to members that specify the properties of an attribute in a network dataset.

Superseded By

INetworkAttribute2

Remarks

The INetworkAttribute and INetworkAttribute2 interfaces are used to access the properties of the network attribute, such as its name and usage type.

To access the NetworkAttribute or EvaluatedNetworkAttribute object for an existing network dataset attribute, use the Attribute, AttributeByID, or AttributeByName methods on the INetworkDataset interface.

The INetworkAttribute and INetworkAttribute2 interfaces are also used to define a new network attribute. To create a new network attribute, cocreate an EvaluatedNetworkAttribute object, specify its properties, and pass the object to the INetworkBuild::AddAttribute method on the network dataset.
