ISimpleFillSymbol Interface

Provides access to members that control the simple fill symbol.

Product Availability

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


ISimpleFillSymbol is used to create a fill symbol comprised of a predefined set of styles. The available styles are provided by the esriSimpleFillStyle enumeration. Use the IFillSymbol interface to set additional properties for ISimpleFillSymbols.

It is strongly recommended to not use any Style other than esriSFSSolid. All of the remaining style enumerations can be accomplished using other fill symbol types such as ILineFillSymbol, or by specifying IColor::NullColor for hollow symbols.
