IFeatureDraw Interface

Provides access to members that control custom drawing by a feature.

Product Availability

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


Method Draw Draws the feature on the display.
Read/write property InvalidArea The area to be drawn.

The IFeatureDraw interface is only relevant to custom features, and so it is currently limited to C++ programmers. You would implement IFeatureDraw in order to provide a customised display for a feature, for example displaying buildings as points when zoomed out to a small scale, and as polygons at larger scales.
