Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server. Requires Schematics Extension.


When AutoCreateElementClasses is enabled, the XML builder automatically creates a schematic element class for managing the different SchematicFeatureClass items found in the input XML data when such a schematic element class doesn't already exist for the schematic diagram class.


When AutoCreateElementClasses is disabled, no new schematic element class is created when the XML builder operates. For example, if in the input XML data there are SchematicFeatureClass items whose value is Stations, and there is no schematic element class for the schematic diagram class to manage these SchematicFeatureClass items, no schematic elements will be included in the generated diagram for these XML items.
