Circle callout

This sample demonstrates how to extend ArcObjects to build a custom text background. ArcMap includes several text backgrounds such as the following:
  • Balloon Callout
  • Line Callout
  • Marker Text Background
  • Simple Line Callout
The text background in this sample is a custom Circle Line Callout. It is similar to the Balloon Callout except, as its name suggests, it is a circle and its leader line is a straight line.

How to use

See How to use ArcGIS samples for help on running the sample.

  1. Run the sample application. The application shows a circle line callout.
