Classes that implement IBorder

Classes Description
SymbolBorder Border drawn using a symbol.


The SymbolBorder object is used to draw borders around frame elements.

IBorder is used to manage borders properties such as the Gap between the border and the frame. The Name property defines the name of the SymbolBorder as listed in the border selector. GetGeometry will return the geometry of the border. The QueryBounds and Draw methods are equivalent to the similar methods of IElement.

See ISymbolBorder for additional control of the border.
