A Symbol object consists of attributes that control how a graphic shape is displayed. It is commonly used with the DrawShape method of the Map object to render a shape on the screen. Depending on the kind of shape you're working with, you can set various properties that control the shape's display; for example, if the shape is a Line, you can use the LineStyle property to display the line with a solid, dashed, dotted, etc. pattern.
