Add an object, feature, or attributed relationship class to the topology.

classToAdd is a parameter of type IClassWeight [in] Weight is a parameter of type double XYRank [in] XYRank is a parameter of type long ZRank [in] ZRank is a parameter of type long EventNotificationOnValidate [in] EventNotificationOnValidate is a parameter of type VARIANT_BOOL
The specified feature class cannot be added to the Topology. Feature classes that cannot participate in a Topology include:
~ Dimension feature classes
~ Annotation feature classes
~ Network feature classes
The specified feature class cannot be added to the Topology as it has an invalid shape type. Invalid shape types include: esriGeometryMultipoint and esriGeometryMultiPatch
Feature classes that already participate in a Topology cannot be added to another Topology.
Cannot add a registered as versioned class to the topology.
The rank associated with the feature class is less than 0 or greater than 63
The AddClass method is used to add a feature class to the topology, with the specified weight and ranks. The Weight must be an integer between 1 and 10. Although it is not used in ArcGIS, it must still be specified. The XY and Z Rank must each be an integer between 1 and 63 (Ranks higher than 51 are will result in errors when specified in either the New Topology wizard or Topology property page). Even if the feature class being added to the topology is not Z aware, it must have a Z rank specified. The XY and Z ranks represent the accuracies of the feature class, relative to other feature classes participating in the topology. Feature classes with a higher rank, such as 1 are more accurate than feature classes with a lower rank, such as 2. Ranks are a relative measure of accuracy; the difference between two features classes of ranks 1 and 2 is the same as two feature classes with ranks of 1 and 50. Multiple feature classes in topology can have the same rank.
The EventNotificationOnValidate parameter indicates if an event is broadcast when the Topology that the feature class participates in, is validated. The EventNotificationOnValidate property can only be set if the Topology is created programmatically. Feature classes added to a topology using the New Topology wizard in ArcCatalog, will have a value of False for EventNotificationOnValidate.
Non-simple feature classes, such as annotation, dimension, geometric network feature classes and feature classes already in a topology cannot be added to a Topology. Object classes or tables and versioned simple feature classes, cannot be added to a Topology. After a populated feature class is added to a topology that has been validated, in whole or in part, the state of the topology will be changed and a dirty area corresponding to the extent of the feature class will be created. If an unpopulated feature class is added to a topology, the topology's state will not change and no dirty area will be created. The AddClass method cannot be called on versioned topologies in SDE, but can be called on non-versioned topologies in SDE and topologies in a file or personal geodatabase.
