public interface ITableCapabilities
extends Serializable

Provides access to members that return information about and manage tables.

Remarks

The ITableCapabilities interface returns information indicating whether the table supports selections. Use CanSelect to determine if you can open a selection set on the table. A situation where CanSelect will be False is a standalone database table without an OID column.

For example, tables created by calling OpenFeatureQuery on IFeatureWorkspace using a QueryDef don't support selection, unless its definition is extended using IQueryName2.

Product Availability

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

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux
