Reverses the from-to direction of line features.
You can view the orientation of line features by symbolizing line features with arrowheads.
Direction-dependent attributes, such as address ranges, are not flipped—only the geometry is flipped. For example, suppose a line feature has an LF-ADD attribute ('left from address') of 100 and an LT-ADD ('left-to address') of 198. These values will not change if the line is flipped.
When input is a feature layer with a selection, only selected features will be modified.
The input line feature class or layer.
FlipLine example 1 (Python window)
Shows, within a Python interactive window, how to use Python command to flip line.
import arcpy arcpy.FlipLine_edit("C:/data/project.gdb/streams")
FlipLine example 2 (stand-alone script)
This example shows how to use Python stand-alone script to do in-place editing.
