IEngineEditTask Interface

Provides access to a task that receives notification when the sketch is complete.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine.


This interface is new at ArcGIS 9.3.

The purpose of the IEngineEditTask interface is to take a edit sketch geometry from IEngineEditSketch::Geometry and perform some action on it. Each edit task performs a different operation with this geometry. For example, the CreateNewFeature edit task takes the edit sketch and stores it as a new feature. The EngineEditor can only have one active Engine edit task at a time. Use IEngineEditor::CurrentTask to set this.

All Engine edit tasks implement the IEngineEditTask interface. An engine edit tasks must be registered in the 'ESRI Engine Edit Tasks' component category to appear in the dropdown menu provided by the ControlsEditingTaskToolControl.
