Select Feature By Override (Cartography)
Selects features that have representation geometry and/or property overrides.
Input Features must be a layer whose source is a geodatabase feature class with at least one feature class representation.
The output is a selected set, so the results can only be used in models, scripts, and in ArcMap sessions.
Representation geometry overrides are sometimes called representation shape overrides.
The input feature layer containing representations.
Specifies the type of representation override to use as a selection criterion.
The following Python window script demonstrates how to use the SelectFeatureByOverride tool in immediate mode.
import arcpy from arcpy import env env.workspace = "C:/data" arcpy.SelectFeatureByOverride_cartography("footprints.lyr", "BOTH")
This stand-alone script shows an example of using the SelectFeatureByOverride tool.
