ControlsLayerTransparencyCommand CoClass

Command to set the transparency value on a layer.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine.

Description

The CLSID of this command is: {A72B645A-08A9-4A88-8981-11754A1DB986}.

This command works with the ToolbarControl, PageLayoutControl, MapControl and ArcMap.

This command must be used in conjunction with CommandsEnvironment singleton object. Failure to instantiate the CommandsEnvironment singleton object results in this command internally using it's own instance of the CommandsEnvironment object and appearing disabled to the end user.

This command gets the layer to be made transparent from the ILayerEffectProperties::TransparencyLayer property on the CommandsEnvironment singleton. This can be set programmatically or interactively by the end user selecting a layer from the ControlsLayerListToolControl
