IRasterBuilder Interface

Provides access to members that control a raster builder.

Product Availability

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


Name Description
Read/write property AuxiliaryFieldAlias Optional look-up that maps field names to possile metadata property names.
Read/write property AuxiliaryFields Fields to be created and populated in the raster catalog when a builder is used.
Method BeginConstruction Initializes the raster builder for URI construction given a valid data source crawler object.
Method Build Construct a builder item using the specified item URI.
Read-only property CanBuildInPlace Indicates whether the raster type can build an item URI as soon as it is contructed.
Method ConstructURIs Constructs one or more item URI objects given the crawled data source item.
Method EndConstruction Shuts down the raster builder object upon completion of URI construction. Once all item URIs are constructed and returned via repated calls to the GetNextURI, this method might return an array of item URIs possibly created as a result of the shut down process.
Method GetNextURI Returns the next available item URI object.
Method GetRecommendedCrawler Returns a crawler best suited for data source as recommended by the raster builder.
Method IsStale Indicates whether the data source referenced by the specified item URI has been updated since the item URI was last constructed.
Read/write property Properties The raster dataset builder properties.
