Classes that implement IEditProperties2

Classes Description
Editor The Object Editor Extension.


The IEditProperties2 interface provides additional parameters to control the editor's behavior. 


Casting the IEditProperties2 interface to the IEditor interface will allow access to set the direction units and direction type. Get a reference to IApplication by hook in the OnCreate method.

    private void SetEditingAngularUnits()
      IEditor m_editor;
      UID uID = new UID();
      uID.Value = "esriEditor.Editor";
      m_editor = m_application.FindExtensionByCLSID(uID) as IEditor;
      IEditProperties2 editProperties2 = m_editor as IEditProperties2;
      editProperties2.DirectionUnits = esriDirectionUnits.esriDUDegreesMinutesSeconds;
      editProperties2.DirectionType = esriDirectionType.esriDTQuadrantBearing;
[Visual Basic .NET]

A reference to IApplication (app) comes from the OnCreate hook parameter.

Public Sub SetEditingAngularUnits()
    Dim editor as IEditor
    Dim editProperties2 As IEditProperties2
    Dim uID As New UID 
    uID.Value = "esriEditor.Editor"
    m_Editor = app.FindExtensionByCLSID(uID)
    editProperties2 = editor
    editProperties2.DirectionUnits = esriDirectionUnits.esriDUDecimalDegrees
    editProperties2.DirectionType = esriDirectionType.esriDTQuadrantBearing
    editProperties2.UseGroundToGrid = False
  End Sub
