Constructor Detail

Erase

public Erase()
Creates the Erase tool with defaults.

Initializes the array of tool parameters with the default values specified when the tool was created.


Erase

public Erase(Object inFeatures,
             Object eraseFeatures,
             Object outFeatureClass)
Creates the Erase tool with the required parameters.

Initializes the array of tool parameters with the values as specified for the required parameters and with the default values for the other parameters.

Parameters:
inFeatures - Feature Layer, the input feature class or layer.
eraseFeatures - Feature Layer, the features whose outer polygon defines the erasing area.
outFeatureClass - Feature Class, the feature class that will contain only those Input Features that lie outside the Erase Features area.
Method Detail

getInFeatures

public Object getInFeatures()
Returns the Input Features parameter of this tool . This parameter is Feature Layer, the input feature class or layer. This is a required parameter.

Returns:
the Input Features

setInFeatures

public void setInFeatures(Object inFeatures)
Sets the Input Features parameter of this tool . This parameter is Feature Layer, the input feature class or layer. This is a required parameter.

Parameters:
inFeatures - Feature Layer, the input feature class or layer.

getEraseFeatures

public Object getEraseFeatures()
Returns the Erase Features parameter of this tool . This parameter is Feature Layer, the features whose outer polygon defines the erasing area. This is a required parameter.

Returns:
the Erase Features

setEraseFeatures

public void setEraseFeatures(Object eraseFeatures)
Sets the Erase Features parameter of this tool . This parameter is Feature Layer, the features whose outer polygon defines the erasing area. This is a required parameter.

Parameters:
eraseFeatures - Feature Layer, the features whose outer polygon defines the erasing area.

getOutFeatureClass

public Object getOutFeatureClass()
Returns the Output Feature Class parameter of this tool . This parameter is Feature Class, the feature class that will contain only those Input Features that lie outside the Erase Features area. This is a required parameter.

Returns:
the Output Feature Class

setOutFeatureClass

public void setOutFeatureClass(Object outFeatureClass)
Sets the Output Feature Class parameter of this tool . This parameter is Feature Class, the feature class that will contain only those Input Features that lie outside the Erase Features area. This is a required parameter.

Parameters:
outFeatureClass - Feature Class, the feature class that will contain only those Input Features that lie outside the Erase Features area.

getClusterTolerance

public Object getClusterTolerance()
Returns the XY Tolerance parameter of this tool . This parameter is Linear unit, the minimum distance separating all feature coordinates (nodes and vertices) as well as the distance a coordinate can move in X or Y (or both). You can set the value to be higher for data that has less coordinate accuracy and lower for datasets with extremely high accuracy. This is an optional parameter.

Returns:
the XY Tolerance

setClusterTolerance

public void setClusterTolerance(Object clusterTolerance)
Sets the XY Tolerance parameter of this tool . This parameter is Linear unit, the minimum distance separating all feature coordinates (nodes and vertices) as well as the distance a coordinate can move in X or Y (or both). You can set the value to be higher for data that has less coordinate accuracy and lower for datasets with extremely high accuracy. This is an optional parameter.

Parameters:
clusterTolerance - Linear unit, the minimum distance separating all feature coordinates (nodes and vertices) as well as the distance a coordinate can move in X or Y (or both). You can set the value to be higher for data that has less coordinate accuracy and lower for datasets with extremely high accuracy.

getToolName

public String getToolName()
Returns the name of this tool.

Returns:
the tool name

getToolboxName

public String getToolboxName()
Returns the name of the tool box containing this tool.

Returns:
the tool box name

getToolboxAlias

public String getToolboxAlias()
Returns the alias of the tool box containing this tool.

Returns:
the tool box alias
