IMxdServer Interface

Provides access to members that support opening a map document and generating images of it.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.

Members

Name Description
Read-only property Bookmarks The spatial bookmarks saved with the specified map, if any.
Read-only property DefaultMapName The TOC Information.
Method ExportLayout Generates an image of the layout, based on the given array of map descriptors, and writes the image to a specified file on disk. Supported Image types are: 'bmp', 'jpg', 'tif', 'png', 'emf', 'eps', 'pdf', 'ai', 'pcx'.
Method ExportLegend Exports a legend to an image file. The client can create the pLegend object and set its desired properties appropriately. If pLegend is null, a default legend for the default map will be generated.
Method ExportMapImage Generates an image of the map, based on the given map descriptor, and writes the image to the specified file on disk. Supported file types are: 'bmp', 'jpg', 'tif', 'png'/'png8', 'png24', 'emf' and 'pcx'.
Method ExportNorthArrow Exports a north arrow to an image file. The client can create the pArrow object and set its desired properties appropriately. If pArrow is null, a default north arrow will be generated for the default map.
Method ExportScaleBar Exports a scale bar to an image file. The client can create the pScaleBar object and set its desired properties appropriately. If pScaleBar is null, a default scale bar will be generated for the default map.
Method GetFeatureValue The value of the specified field for the specified feature.
Method GetMapBitmapHandle Generates a picture of the map, based on the given map descriptor, and returns an HBITMAP handle to the resulting image. If you call this function, you absolutely MUST call ReleaseBitmapHandle() with the returned bitmap handle.
Method GetMapPicture Generates a picture of the map, based on the given map descriptor, and returns the image as an IPictureDisp. If pMapDescriptor is null, it draws a picture of the default map at the default extent.
Read-only property LayerDescriptors An array of LayerDescriptor objects for a given map name. Each layer descriptor describes the characteristics of a layer in the map. Default layer properties can be changed to change output.
Read-only property MapDescriptors An array of MapDescriptor objects, where each map descriptor describes the characteristics of a data frame in the document. The properties of a map descriptor object can be altered in order to draw the map image with different state than the default.
Method ReleaseBitmapHandle Companion function to GetBitmapHandle(). Releases the bitmap handle that is returned from that function.
Method Start Initializes the map server with an mxd file stored at the specified path. The path must be able to be located by the server machine.
Method StartWithData An alternative to calling Start() with a document name, this method synthesizes a map document with a single layer based on the given IDataset object, and initializes the map server for processing.
Method Stop Clears out all of the map objects in memory. The client must call one of the Start methods again before attempting any other operations.
Read-only property Thumbnail The thumbnail image stored with the map document, if any. If the document has no thumbnail stored with it, this method will return E_FAIL and the returned IPictureDisp object will be null.
Read-only property TOCInfo The TOC Information.
