IRotateOperation inherits from IOperation and allows you to stack a rotation applying to the dataframe in the undo stacks. Use this interface to set all the parameters for the rotation operation before performing the operation using IOperationStack.

Name is the name of the operation as it will appear as Undo in the menu.

ActiveView is the view that will be rotated, usually the focus map.

The PreviousRotation can be read from IDisplayTransformation::Rotation. The display transformation of the active view can be accessed via IActiveView::ScreenDisplay.

Rotation is the new rotation you want to apply to the dataframe.
