Filled leader callout

This sample shows how to extend ArcObjects to build a custom text background. ArcMap includes the following text backgrounds:
  • Balloon callout
  • Line callout
  • Marker text background
  • Simple line callout
The custom text background in this sample is a filled leader callout and is similar to the balloon callout except, as its name suggests, the leader can be filled with a symbol that differs from the balloon.

How to use

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

  1. Run the sample application. The application illustrates a filled leader callout.
