Classes that implement ISnappingEnvironment

Classes Description
Snapping Provides the snapping environment for tools to use.


ISnappingEnvironment is the primary interface for working with and managing the snapping environment at 10.0.  Other snapping methods available at previous versions, notably the ArcMap editor�s snap environment (accessed from IEditor.SnapEnvironment) and the engine editor�s snapping environment (accessed via IEngineSnapEnvironment) still exist at ArcGIS 10.0. These are separate environments and developers should be aware of which snapping environment their tools are using.  One of the main benefits of the new snapping environment is its availability to both ArcMap and ArcGIS Engine developers, and the capability to utilize snapping for all tools, not editing.
