getSpatialReference

public ISpatialReference getSpatialReference()
                                      throws IOException,
                                             AutomationException
The spatial reference of the GeoDataset.

Remarks

This property is read only. For layers, when the first layer is added to ArcMap, its spatial reference is read by this property, and the map is set to this spatial reference.

Instances of the esriCarto.GroupLayer class will return null for this property, as a group layer can contain multiple datasets with different spatial references.

Modifications to a spatial reference returned by this property will not be persisted. To modify the spatial reference of a dataset, the IGeoDatasetSchemaEdit and IGeoDatasetSchemaEdit2 interfaces should be used.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Specified by:
getSpatialReference in interface IGeoDataset
Returns:
A reference to a com.esri.arcgis.geometry.ISpatialReference
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

getExtent

public IEnvelope getExtent()
                    throws IOException,
                           AutomationException
The extent of the GeoDataset.

Remarks

The IGeoDataset::Extent property returns an envelope representing the maximum extent of data which has been stored in the dataset.

Consider the following scenario. A new feature class has features added to it. The IGeoDataset::Extent is then requested and an envelope is returned. The extents of the envelope returned are represented by the red box in the image below.

The red box represents the IGeoDataset extent

If a portion of the features were then deleted and the extent is again requested an envelope with the exact same extents as during the first request would be returned (see image below). This is because the deletion of features does not shrink the extent. However all additions of features outside the red box would increase the envelope returned to encompass the newly added features.

The red box represents the IGeoDataset extent after some of the features have been deleted

If you would like to update the IGeoDataset::Extent property to reflect the current features in your dataset please see IFeatureClassManage::UpdateExtent (also see IFeatureClassLoad). In the image below the extent has been updated and a new envelope is being returned.

The red box represents the IGeoDataset extent after it has been updated

ESRI's GroupLayer implements this property differently from most other layer coclasses. When you instantiate a new GroupLayer, this property will return a valid envelope with zero height and width. With most other newly instantiated layers (for example FeatureLayer, RasterLayer, TinLayer), this property initally returns Nothing.

identify

public IArray identify(IGeometry pGeom)
                throws IOException,
                       AutomationException
Identifies objects at the specified location.

Remarks

When the IIdentify interface is on a map layer, the Identify method returns an array of FeatureIdentifyObject objects.

On a FeatureIdentifyObject, you can do a QI to the IIdentifyObj interface to get more information about the identified feature. The IIdentifyObj interface returns the window handle, layer, and name of the feature; it has methods to flash the feature in the display and to display a context menu at the Identify location.

This method performs an identify operation with the provided geometry. When identifying layers, typically a small envelope is passed in rather than a point to account for differences in the precision of the display and the feature geometry.

                                  AutomationException
Creates a cursor from the display table based upon the search criteria.

Description

QueryFilter specifies an IQueryFilterObject to be used for the search.

Recycling specifies whether the resulting cursor is recycling or non-recycling. Use True for recycling cursor and False for a non-recycling cursor.

Remarks

If there is a definition query set on the layer or table, the SearchDisplayTable method will work on the subset of rows that meet the definition criteria. Otherwise, it will search the whole table.

SearchDisplayTable will return an ICursor with all of the rows that satisfy some attribute and/or spatial query as specified by an IQueryFilter object. If Nothing is given as the IQueryFilter, then the cursor will have all of the rows from the table.

This SearchDisplayTable method will also work on joined fields if you qualify the field names. For example, if you want to search a field called "Pop1990" from a joined table called "Demog", you should used "Demog.Pop1990" for the field name in the query filter used in the search method.

The Recycling parameter controls row object allocation behavior. Recycling cursors rehydrate a single row object on each fetch and can be used to optimize read-only access, for example, when drawing. It is illegal to maintain a reference on a row object returned by a recycling cursor across multiple calls to NextRow on the cursor. Row objects returned by a recycling cursor should not be modified.

Non-recycling cursors return a separate row object on each fetch. The objects returned by a non-recycling cursor may be modified and stored with polymorphic behavior. The geodatabase guarantees 'unique instance semantics' on non-recycling feature objects fetched during an edit session.

Recycling cursors should be used only for drawing and read-only access to object state. Use non-recycling search cursors to fetch objects that are to be updated.

The category of the dataset.

Remarks

IDataset::Category returns a description of the category of the dataset. The description returned from the Category property is the same value that is displayed in the Type column within the Contents tab in ArcCatalog. The value will contain a description of the dataset such as "Topology" prefixed with a description of the type of workspace containing the dataset such as "File Geodatabase".

The description returned from IDataset::Category may change between releases of ArcGIS. In addition to this, returned strings are localized, meaning that code relying on a specific string being provided may fail when deployed with a different version of ArcGIS than it was developed with, or when deployed to a client using a different language than it was developed with.

                                   AutomationException
The set of properties for the dataset.

Description

The PropertySet property is used to return any additional intrinsic properties (but not metadata properties) that may apply to the dataset. One use of this property is to distinguish between the types of File Geodatabase datafile formats. If called on a Feature Class or Table in a File Geodatabase the Datafile Format property can either be esriFGDBStandardDatafile or esriFGDBCompressedDatafile.

Most datasets do not implement this property and will either raise an error or return a null value if it's called. There are a handful of exceptions that will return property sets; these include the datasets from file geodatabases (as mentioned above) and coverages.

Remarks

Examples of intrinsic properties for which explicit methods exist include the SpatialReference and the Extent methods available on the IGeoDataset interface. In most cases this PropertySet will be empty.

IDataset::PropertySet is not supported for Graph objects such as a Geometric Network.

Description

The TimeOffset is used to display data at a different time on the timeline. This is for temporary purposes only. It can be useful for comparing data sets from different time period when you need to display the two sets of data together. For example, to visualize the growth pattern of two wild fires that happened in two different years, one of the layers can be given an offset that will cause it to appear as if the fire started at the same time as the other fire. In this way the growth patterns can be seen together, and compared.

public int getTimeOffsetUnits()
                       throws IOException,
                              AutomationException
Returns recommended time interval units to be used to animate this layer/ table.

Description

This property is the enumerated value representing the time units used when measuring the time offset. This property should be read/written along with the time offset value. For more information about the time offset, see the documentation on the TimeOffset property.

createRow

public IRow createRow()
               throws IOException,
                      AutomationException
Creates a row in the database with a system assigned object ID and null property values.

Remarks

The CreateRow method creates a new row in the underlying database with a system assigned object id value. A row object representing the created row is returned to the caller. The row object returned has the system assigned object ID as the value of the OIDField. All other fields are initialized to null values if they can be made null and to built-in default values appropriate to the type of the field if they cannot be made null.

The caller is responsible for setting the desired field values into the row and calling the Store method on the row. If the table represents an object class with subtypes, then it is the callerís responsibility to set the default subtype code into the row and call the InitDefaultValues method on the row before storing, if that is the desired result. For tables without object behavior, insert cursors offer a more efficient way for inserting new rows.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Specified by:
createRow in interface ITable
Returns:
A reference to a com.esri.arcgis.geodatabase.IRow
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

getRow

public IRow getRow(int oID)
            throws IOException,
                   AutomationException
The row from the database with the specified object ID.

Remarks

The GetRow method returns an existing row object, given its object ID value. The caller can query the returned row object for additional object specific interfaces. The retrieved row may be modified; calling Store on the row object after changing it will trigger messages to related objects and will mark the row for committing to the database.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Specified by:
getRow in interface ITable
Parameters:
oID - The oID (in)
Returns:
A reference to a com.esri.arcgis.geodatabase.IRow
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

getRows

public ICursor getRows(Object oids,
                       boolean recycling)
                throws IOException,
                       AutomationException
The cursor of rows based on a set of object ids.

Remarks

The GetRows method returns a cursor that may be used to retrieve a set of rows specified by the input array of object id values. See the description of the Search method to understand the meaning of the recycling parameter. It is far more efficient to retrieve a set of rows using the GetRows method than it is to retrieve each individual row using the GetRow method. The retrieved rows may be modified; Store should be called on the row objects after changing them.

The oids parameter should be passed an integer array. For example:

                                  AutomationException
Creates a row buffer that can be used with an insert cursor.

Remarks

The CreateRowBuffer method creates a new row buffer object in memory and returns it to the caller. No row is created in the database. The returned row buffer does not have an object ID value. The caller can set values into the row buffer and use it as an argument to the InsertRow method on an insert cursor; the latter is obtained by calling the Insert method on the Table.

update

public ICursor update(IQueryFilter queryFilter,
                      boolean recycling)
               throws IOException,
                      AutomationException
Returns a cursor that can be used to update Rows selected by the specified query.

Remarks

The Update method returns an update cursor that can be used to update or delete rows. It offers somewhat faster performance than multiple calls to Store or Delete on row objects fetched using a non-recycling search cursor for tables storing simple rows and simple features. There is no difference in performance for complex objects and features.

When using cursors within an edit session, they should always be scoped to edit operations. In other words, a cursor should be created after an edit operation has begun and should not be used once that edit operation has been stopped or aborted.

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Specified by:
update in interface ITable
Parameters:
queryFilter - A reference to a com.esri.arcgis.geodatabase.IQueryFilter (in)
recycling - The recycling (in)
Returns:
A reference to a com.esri.arcgis.geodatabase.ICursor
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

insert

public ICursor insert(boolean useBuffering)
               throws IOException,
                      AutomationException
Returns a cursor that can be used to insert new Rows.

Remarks

The Insert method returns an insert cursor that can be used to bulk insert rows. It offers significantly faster performance than multiple calls to CreateRow and Store for tables storing simple rows and simple features (that is, for tables whose CLSID is esriGeoDatabase.Row, esriGeoDatabase.Object, or esriGeoDatabase.Feature).

Insert cursors on tables containing complex objects use the CreateRow and Store methods to achieve polymorphism, and there is no difference in performance in these cases.

When using cursors within an edit session, they should always be scoped to edit operations. In other words, a cursor should be created after an edit operation has begun and should not be used once that edit operation has been stopped or aborted.

                            IWorkspace selectionContainer)
                     throws IOException,
                            AutomationException
A selection that contains the object ids selected by the specified query.

Remarks

The Select method returns a selection set that holds either row IDs or row objects from the Table depending on the selection option. Multiple selection sets can be created on the same table. It is up to a client application or object to keep a reference on created selections and use them as appropriate. For example, a FeatureLayer creates and uses selections on a FeatureClass (a type of Table).

The selType parameter determines the type of selection set that will be created: an ID set, a snapshot, or a hybrid. See the ISelectionSet interface for a comparison of the three types.

When calling Select the selectionContainer parameter is no longer required. A null value should be passed as this parameter.

Creates a new feature layer from the existing layer based on the current selection and the specified query expression.

Description

CreateSelectionLayer creates a new FeatureLayer from an existing FeatureLayer.
LayerName defines the new layer's name.
Set useCurrentSelection = TRUE here if you want to use the currently selected features on the existing layer.
joinTableNames may contain the name of related table(s) separated by commas. The existing join(s) will then be passed on to the new layer.
The DefinitionExpression parameter can be used to set a definition expression on the newly created layer but currently this will be defined at the feature class rather than at the layer level and will not show up in the UI. If you want to set a definition query on the newly created layer, it is best to use IFeatureLayerDefinition again to set the definition query after the layer has been created.

Description

Use this method to return a read-only cursor of the layer's features.

Remarks

If there is a definition query set on the layer, the Search method will automatically work on the subset of features in the layer that meet the definition criteria. You specify an additional query that will be applied after the layer's definition query by passing valid IQueryFilter object for the QueryFilter parameter.

This Search method will not work on joined fields. If the FeatureLayer has any joins, you should use the IGeoFeatureLayer::SearchDisplayFeatures method instead.

You cannot use the cursor returned by IFeatureLayer::Search to update features, instead use IFeatureClass::Update.

Recycling specifies whether the resulting feature cursor will be recycling or non-recycling. Use True for recycling cursor and False for a non-recycling cursor. See the topic for IFeatureClass::Search for more information.
