All Implemented Interfaces:
GPTool

public class SymDiff
extends AbstractGPTool

Computes a geometric intersection of the input and update features. Features or portions of features in the input and update features which do not overlap will be written to the Output Feature Class. The Symmetrical Difference tool is contained in the Analysis Tools tool box.

Constructor Detail

SymDiff

public SymDiff()
Creates the Symmetrical Difference tool with defaults.

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


SymDiff

public SymDiff(Object inFeatures,
               Object updateFeatures,
               Object outFeatureClass)
Creates the Symmetrical Difference 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. Geometry type must be polygon.
updateFeatures - Feature Layer, the update feature class or layer. Geometry type must be polygon.
outFeatureClass - Feature Class, the feature class to which the results will be written.
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. Geometry type must be polygon. 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. Geometry type must be polygon. This is a required parameter.

Parameters:
inFeatures - Feature Layer, the input feature class or layer. Geometry type must be polygon.

getUpdateFeatures

public Object getUpdateFeatures()
Returns the Update Features parameter of this tool . This parameter is Feature Layer, the update feature class or layer. Geometry type must be polygon. This is a required parameter.

Returns:
the Update Features

setUpdateFeatures

public void setUpdateFeatures(Object updateFeatures)
Sets the Update Features parameter of this tool . This parameter is Feature Layer, the update feature class or layer. Geometry type must be polygon. This is a required parameter.

Parameters:
updateFeatures - Feature Layer, the update feature class or layer. Geometry type must be polygon.

getOutFeatureClass

public Object getOutFeatureClass()
Returns the Output Feature Class parameter of this tool . This parameter is Feature Class, the feature class to which the results will be written. 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 to which the results will be written. This is a required parameter.

Parameters:
outFeatureClass - Feature Class, the feature class to which the results will be written.

getJoinAttributes

public String getJoinAttributes()
Returns the JoinAttributes parameter of this tool . This parameter is String, determines which attributes will be transferred to the Output Feature Class. This is an optional parameter.

Returns:
the JoinAttributes

setJoinAttributes

public void setJoinAttributes(String joinAttributes)
Sets the JoinAttributes parameter of this tool . This parameter is String, determines which attributes will be transferred to the Output Feature Class. This is an optional parameter.

Parameters:
joinAttributes - String, determines which attributes will be transferred to the Output Feature Class.

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
