Interface INetworkClass

All Superinterfaces:
IClass, IFeatureClass, IObjectClass, Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
FeatureClass, INetworkClassProxy

public interface INetworkClass
extends IFeatureClass, Serializable

Provides access to members that return information about geometric networks, field weighting and ancillary roles.

Remarks

The FeatureType property of such feature classes will be one of esriFTSimpleJunction, esriDTSimpleEdge, esriFTComplexJunction, or esriFTComplexEdge.

You can QI (Query Interface) to any of these other interfaces on the FeatureClass object.

IDataset
IGeoDataset
ITable
INetworkClass
ISubtypes
IValidation

When To Use

Use the INetworkClass interface to get a reference to the geometric network which the network class (feature class) belongs to. You can also check to see if the network class has an Ancillary Role in the network, and the right to field mapping for the logical network.

The INetworkClass interface inherits from the IFeatureClass interface and the ITable interface.

Method Detail

getGeometricNetwork

IGeometricNetwork getGeometricNetwork()
                                      throws IOException,
                                             AutomationException
The geometric network in which this class participates.

Remarks

The GeomtricNetwork property returns an IGeometricNetwork interface to the geometric network in which the network feature class participates.

Product Availability

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

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Returns:
A reference to a com.esri.arcgis.geodatabase.IGeometricNetwork
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

getFieldToWeightMapping

int getFieldToWeightMapping(int fieldIndex)
                            throws IOException,
                                   AutomationException
The specified field to Weight mapping for the logical network.

Product Availability

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

Parameters:
fieldIndex - The fieldIndex (in)
Returns:
The weightID
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

getNetworkAncillaryRole

int getNetworkAncillaryRole()
                            throws IOException,
                                   AutomationException
The possible network ancillary roles of the contained Features.

Remarks

The NetworkAncillaryRole property will return the esriNetworkAncillaryRole enumeration which indicates if the junction class has a network ancillary role. Since junctions in a geometric network can act as a source, a sink or neither when calculating flow direction, this property will indicate whether or not the features in the class can be sources or sinks. If the class is a simple edge or complex edge network class, the ancillary role will always be returned as esriNCARNone since only junctions may have ancillary roles.

Product Availability

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

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Returns:
A com.esri.arcgis.geodatabase.esriNetworkClassAncillaryRole constant
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.
