IEngineEditSketch Interface

Provides access to members that manage the edit sketch.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine.

Description

This interface is new at ArcGIS 9.3.

The purpose of the IEngineEditSketch interface is to manage the geometry that will be used by EngineEditor.

The EngineEditor automatically creates a new empty geometry (Geometry) with the same geometry type (GeometryType) as the target layer (IEngineEditLayers::TargetLayer). Use the AddPoint method to create the edit sketch geometry and finishSketch to signal to the current task (IEngineEditor::CurrentTask) that the geometry is ready for use. The current task takes the geometry and performs some action. For example, the Create New Feature task takes the geometry and stores it in the layer as a new feature.
