The SymbolType enumeration to use.

Return Value

The default symbol for the specified SymbolType.


The default symbols for the SymbolType enumeration are as follows:

  • Marker - Orange Stickpin
  • Line - Red solid line
  • Fill - Red solid fill

The Unknown SymbolType does not have a default symbol (returns null). A Multipatch shape with textures should not use the default red fill, as this will interfere with the display of the texture; instead use Symbol.GetDefault(GeometryType.Multipatch) to return a suitable Symbol.
