IPropertySupport Interface

Provides access to members that set a default property on an object.

Product Availability

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

When To Use

IPropertySupport is a generic interface implemented by most graphic elements and few other objects.  IPropertySupport is used for updating generic properties of an object; it can be used by a client without the client needing to know the exact nature of the underlying class. Through IPropertySupport you can ask an object if another object applies to it (for instance, a color object). If the object does apply, you can apply a new object of that type or ask for the current object.

Members

Name Description
Method Applies Indicates if the receiver can apply the given object at any given time.
Method Apply Applies the given property to the receiver and returns the old object.
Method CanApply Indicates if the receiver can apply the given object at that particular moment.
Read-only property Current The object currently being used.

Remarks

For FeatureLayer objects, the ArcGIS framework uses this interface to check to see if the specified display filter object can be applied to the layer. Applies indicates whether the specified display filter object can be applied generally, while CanApply indicates whether the specified display filter object can be applied at that particular moment. Current returns the current display filter. FeatureLayer objects also uses IPropertySupport to manage some renderer objects.
