IBasicOverposterLayerProperties2 Interface

Provides access to members that control the maximum distance labels/symbols are placed away from their respective features. Note: the IBasicOverposterLayerProperties2 interface has been superseded by IBasicOverposterLayerProperties4. Please consider using the more recent version.

Product Availability

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


Manages settings that control the placement of dynamic labels and feature-linked annotation relative to features. This interface manages generic settings that apply to all feature geometry types (point, line, and polygon). This interface also manages, or provides access to other objects that manage, placement properties that are used only when labeling or annotating a specific feature geometry type.
