Provides access to members that control temporary datasets.
When To Use
Temporary raster datasets can delete themselves if they are not referenced by any application. ITemporaryDataset interface supports temporary raster datasets. It is used to make temporary raster datasets permanent.
|IsTemporary||Indicates if the dataset is temporary.|
|MakePermanent||Persists this temporary dataset permanent.|
|MakePermanentAs||Persists this temporary dataset to a new permanent dataset.|
CoClasses that implement ITemporaryDataset
|CoClasses and Classes||Description|
|FunctionRasterDataset||A class for a function raster dataset.|
|RasterDataset||A representation of a raster dataset on disk.|
This interface is not supported by a RasterDataset instance from an ArcSDE geodatabase or a File geodatabase.
Temporary raster datasets are created by most operations performed by the Spatial Analyst Extension and also can be created using IRasterWorkspace2::CreateRasterDataset method.
MakePermanent method change the status of a dataset from temporary to permanent. If the dataset is permanent, MakePermanent does nothing.
MakePermanentAs method makes the current dataset permanent by creating a new raster dataset that contains the same data. The current raster dataset will be deleted when all references to it are released. The supported output formats are same as ISaveAs.
