How to create a raster catalog layer


Creating a raster catalog layer

Do the following steps to create a raster catalog layer from a geodatabase raster catalog, then add it to a map:
  1. Create a raster catalog layer.
  2. Add it to the map if the layer is valid.

    See the following code example:
[C#]
public static void AddRasterCatalogLayer(ESRI.ArcGIS.Carto.IActiveView activeView,
    ESRI.ArcGIS.Geodatabase.IRasterCatalog rasterCatalog)
{
    //Create a raster catalog layer.
    ESRI.ArcGIS.Carto.IGdbRasterCatalogLayer rastercatalogLayer=new
        GdbRasterCatalogLayerClass();
    rastercatalogLayer.Setup((ITable)rasterCatalog);
    //Add it to the map if the layer is valid.
    if (!(rastercatalogLayer == null))
    {
        ESRI.ArcGIS.Carto.IMap map=activeView.FocusMap;
        map.AddLayer((ILayer)rastercatalogLayer);
    }
}
[VB.NET]
Public Shared Sub AddRasterCatalogLayer(ByVal activeView As ESRI.ArcGIS.Carto.IActiveView, ByVal rasterCatalog As ESRI.ArcGIS.Geodatabase.IRasterCatalog)
'Create a raster catalog layer.
Dim rastercatalogLayer As ESRI.ArcGIS.Carto.IGdbRasterCatalogLayer=New GdbRasterCatalogLayerClass()
rastercatalogLayer.Setup(CType(rasterCatalog, ITable))

'Add it to the map if the layer is valid.
If Not (rastercatalogLayer=Nothing) Then
    Dim map As ESRI.ArcGIS.Carto.IMap=activeView.FocusMap
    map.AddLayer(CType(rastercatalogLayer, ILayer))
End If
End Sub
