Interface IXYEvent2FieldsProperties

All Superinterfaces:
IXYEventProperties, Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
XYEvent2FieldsProperties

public interface IXYEvent2FieldsProperties
extends IXYEventProperties, Serializable

Provides access to members that define the fields needed to create an XY event layer. A minimum of two fields (X and Y) are required.

Remarks

The IXYEvent2FieldsProperties interface has properties for specifying the x field name, the y field name and the z field name. The x and y field name properties are required and must always return valid fields names, while the z field name is optional. The number 2 appears in the interface name because two of the three fields are required.

This information is used when creating a new XY feature class and can be returned from an existing XY feature class.

The fields must have numeric data types. For example, if your coordinates are stored in degrees, minutes and seconds, you need to convert them to decimal degrees and store them in numeric fields. These numeric fields can then be used to create an XY feature class.
