Provides access to members that return, modify and validate attribute rules.
IAttributeRule interface is used to maintain information about attribute rules. Validation of attribute rules is a function of this interface. Setting/retrieving the domain name, fieldname, subtypecode of a particular attribute rule are members of this interface.
When To Use
IAttributeRule is the interface on a AttributeRule object used to get and set the properties of an Attribute Rule. You can use the Validate function of the attribute rule object to validate a particular row against this attribute rule. The validate function returns a boolean value of TRUE if it is valid and FALSE if it was not.
|Category||The name associated with the validation rule.|

|FieldName||The field name associated with the attribute rule.|
|Helpstring||The helpstring associated with the validation rule.|
|SubtypeCode||The subtype code.|
|Type||The type associated with the validation rule.|
|Validate||Validates the rule.|
|IRule||Provides access to members that return information about rules.|
CoClasses that implement IAttributeRule
|CoClasses and Classes||Description|
|AttributeRule||Esri attribute rule object.|
IAttributeRule is for setting rules based on attributes for object classes. They describe the legal values for a field in an object class. For example, you might set an attribute rule that specifies wood poles can only be within a certain height range. You do this by establishing a range domain for pole heights and then using an attribute rule to apply this domain to a particular field in the pole object class, probably the height field.
