|Legend||A map surround for displaying a legend.|
Use this interface to modify a legend and access its subparts.
A legend is mostly a collection of legend items, one for each layer of the map. See the ILegendItem documentation for information about these. ILegend provides access to and manages the legend’s items with the Item and ItemCount properties as well as the AddItem, InsertItem, RemoveItem and ClearItems methods.
The format of the legend is managed by the LegendFormat object. The Format properties gives access to this object through the ILegendFormat interface. ILegend also manages a few of the legend properties such as the Title . When changing the properties of an existing legend, you must call Refresh to have the changes reflected in the layout.
Finally the AutoAdd, AutoReorder and AutoVisibility properties are used to synchronize the aspect and ordering of the legend with the TOC. The default value for this property is True.
