Calculate Representation Rule (Cartography)
Applies existing representation rules to features in a feature class representation by calculating the RuleID field.
The input must be a geodatabase feature class with at least one feature class representation.
Specify a representation rule to assign to a feature. The selected feature or features will have their Rule ID field populated with the specified rule.
If the specified Rule ID matches the current Rule ID for a selected feature or features, there will be no change.
The feature class that contains the features for which representation rules will be calculated.
The feature class representation that contains the representation rules that will be applied to features. This feature class representation must belong to the input feature class.
The representation rule to be applied to the input features by calculating the RuleID field.
The following Python window script demonstrates how to use the CalculateRepresentationRule tool in immediate mode.
import arcpy from arcpy import env env.workspace = "C:/data" arcpy.CalculateRepresentationRule_cartography("footprints.lyr", "footprints_Rep", "Rule_3")
This stand-alone script shows an example of using the CalculateRepresentationRule tool.
