IGlobeControlDefault Interface

Provides access to members that control the GlobeControl.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine.

Description

The IGlobeControlDefault interface is the default dispatch interface that most development environments will automatically expose. For example, placing the GlobeControl in a container will typically generate an object called GlobeControl1. The properties and methods available directly on this object correspond to this interface, together with container specific properties and methods.

The IGlobeControlDefault interface is a 'pure' dispatch interface, so can be extended with new properties and methods at future releases of ArcGIS. The methods and properties are identical to the highest numbered main interface on the GlobeControl. For example, IGlobeControlDefault is equivalent to IGlobeControl, but at future releases this could become IGlobeControl2. By using the IGlobeControlDefault interface you are guaranteed to always have access to the latest GlobeControl. 

There is a small performance overhead in making calls through to a pure dispatch interface, but to avoid this you can QI to a specific interface. In some development environments it is not possible to QI directly on the control to other COM interfaces, because the control is contained within a wrapper object. Use the Object property to get the real control before performing the QI.

When querying interface to IGlobeControlDefault in Visual Basic .NET or Visual C# .NET the Object property or container specific code must be used. This is because .NET contains the real control inside a wrapper object known as an host.

IGlobeControlDefault globeControl=axGlobeControl1.Object as IGlobeControlDefault;
