ICommandPool Interface

Provides access to the contents of the command pool. Note: the ICommandPool interface has been superseded byICommandPool2. Please consider using the more recent version.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine.

Description

The ICommandPool interface is used to access the collection of commands used by the ToolbarControl or a ToolbarMenu or ToolbarPalette, or the commands shared between several ToolbarControl's. The ToolbarControl manages its CommandPool itself in order to maintain its command items. If a ToolbarMenu or ToolbarPalette are added to a ToolbarControl they will automatically share the same CommandPool as the ToolbarControl. If a ToolbarMenu or ToolbarPalette are used standalone they will mange their own CommandPool.

Remarks

Use the CommandPool to determine if a particular Command Exists, and to then retrieve its UsageCount, UID and Created properties. The Created property indicates whether the ICommand::OnCreate method has been called. Alternatively, iterate the contents of the CommandPool by using the Count and Command properties or the FindByUID method.
