All Superinterfaces:

All Known Implementing Classes:
INgAttributeGeometryProxy, NgAttributeGeometry

public interface INgAttributeGeometry
extends Serializable

Provides access to members that control the attribute geometry.

Description

An attribute geometry is an attribute which values are decoded from an ESRI geometry blob. Three types of information can be decoded: the list of intermediate points related to a feature edge (that is, the vertices), the X coordinate for a feature point, and the Y coordinate for a feature point.

Remarks

Such an attribute may be defined when you work with an ESRI geodatabase, and you have no reason to define that attribute if your database is not an ESRI geodatabase. Moreover, the datasource specified for the element type the geometric attribute is related to, must connect your ESRI geodatabase using the ESRI provider, otherwise the computed geometric attribute value will be wrong.

Method Detail

getName

String getName()
               throws IOException,
                      AutomationException
Name of the attribute geometry.

Description

This name is defined when the geometry attribute is created
- either by calling the INgObjectType CreateAttribute method in the program code,
- or through ArcGIS Schematics Designer, when the attribute has been created.

Returns:
The pVal
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

setName

void setName(String pVal)
