ITopologyGraph.GetParentGeometry Method

Creates a geometry corresponding to the current set of edges/nodes owned by the specified parent.

[Visual Basic .NET]
Public Function GetParentGeometry ( _
    ByVal FeatureClass As IFeatureClass, _
    ByVal fID As Integer _
) As IGeometry
public IGeometry GetParentGeometry (
    IFeatureClass FeatureClass,
    int fID
HRESULT GetParentGeometry(
  IFeatureClass* FeatureClass,
  long fID

FeatureClass is a parameter of type IFeatureClass* fID
fID is a parameter of type long

Product Availability

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


GetParentGeometry returns a new geometry created from the set of edges/nodes owned by the specified TopologyParent. It will construct a geometry using the edges and nodes of given parent. This means that if vertices are introduced in the TopologyGraph by the presence of non-explicit intersections (Intersections not originally present in the parents) those intersections will be reflected by the insertion of new vertices on the output geometry (See picture below).
