INetworkCollection Interface

Provides access to members that create and maintain information about geometric networks. Note: the INetworkCollection interface has been superseded by INetworkCollection2. Please consider using the more recent version.

Product Availability

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


The INetworkCollection interface provides access to the geometric networks in the feature dataset, and also lets you create them.


Name Description
Method CreateGeometricNetwork Creates a new GeometricNetwork in this FeatureDataset.
Read-only property GeometricNetwork The GeometricNetwork associated with the specified index value.
Read-only property GeometricNetworkByName The GeometricNetwork with the specified Name.
Read-only property GeometricNetworkCount The number of GeometricNetworks in this FeatureDataset.

Classes that implement INetworkCollection

Classes Description
FeatureDataset Esri Feature Dataset object.


Note that if your intention is only to browse for the set of networks in a feature dataset then it is not necessary to open the feature dataset and invoke methods on INetworkCollection. The GeometricNetworkNames method on a FeatureDatasetName object can be used to efficiently obtain this information.
