In an ArcMap extension, I need to flip multiple lines from a selection.

The ArcMap Flip button only allows you to flip one feature at a time.

What's the ArcObjects equivalent to ArcMap's Flip button?

ICurve.ReverseOrientation should do what you want.

Actually there is a full snippet Flip Line Direction Snippet , available in the ESRI online documentation.

Here is a small extract from it:

ESRI.ArcGIS.Geometry.ICurve curve = feature.Shape as ESRI.ArcGIS.Geometry.ICurve;
feature.Shape = curve;

Thanks! By the way, there's an error in the Flip Line snippet. the line "if(!(feature is ESRI.ArcGIS.Geometry.ICurve))" should be "if(!(feature.Shape is ESRI.ArcGIS.Geometry.ICurve))" –  Goldorak84 Jan 9 '13 at 19:06
@Goldorak84 - yes thats correct..quite a few of them are lurking in the samples :) –  vinayan Jan 10 '13 at 5:16
