IDynamicGlyphFactory.LoadDynamicGlyphsGroup Method

Loads a dynamic glyph group from files.

[Visual Basic .NET]
Public Function LoadDynamicGlyphsGroup ( _
    ByVal fileName As String _
) As Integer
public int LoadDynamicGlyphsGroup (
    string fileName
HRESULT LoadDynamicGlyphsGroup(
  BSTR fileName
fileName [in]

fileName is a parameter of type BSTR

Product Availability

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


The fileName points to an XML file. This XML file holds information regarding the image files that should be used in order to load the group image, and a database that describes the identity, location, and size of the glyphs in the group.

On success, the method returns the ID of the loaded group. This ID can be used to get a dynamic glyph from the group, using the get property IDynamicGlyphFactory.DynamicGlyph, or unload the glyphs group, using the method IDynamicGlyphFactory.UnloadDynamicGlyphsGroup.
