I've just started learning VBA and ArcObjects, and at the moment just playing around trying to do different things. What i am trying to do is Click on a tool, and allow the user to put a point graphic on the map, but also buffer the point(marker) that has been added. I can get the point on the map, but seem to be going round in circles getting the buffer to work. Can someone give me some hints ( i don't want the exact answer just some guidance on where I am going wrong.
Code is here.
Private Sub Buffer_MouseDown(ByVal button As Long, ByVal shift As Long, ByVal x As Long, ByVal y As Long) Dim pMxDoc As IMxDocument ' Create Object for current document Set pMxDoc = ThisDocument ' Set object to current Document Dim pMap As IMap ' Create object for current map Set pMap = pMxDoc.FocusMap ' Set object to the current active map Dim pPoint As IPoint 'Create object for point on map Set pPoint = pMxDoc.CurrentLocation ' Set object to current location Dim pElement As IElement ' Create object for graphic THAT IS ADDED TO THE MAP!!!! Set pElement = New MarkerElement ' Set object to a new marker element (point graphic) pElement.Geometry = pPoint ' Assign the geometry of the element to the Point. Dim pGraphics As IGraphicsContainer ' Create object to hold the graphic Set pGraphics = pMap ' Set object to current active map pGraphics.AddElement pElement, 0 ' Set the graphic that will be added Dim pActiveView As IActiveView ' Create object for active map display Set pActiveView = pMxDoc.ActiveView ' Set object to the Active view '--------------CREATE BUFFER------------------------' Dim pSpaRef As ISpatialReference3 Set pSpaRef = pMap.SpatialReference Dim pFCBuffer As IFeatureCursorBuffer2 ' Create Object for buffer Set pFCBuffer = New FeatureCursorBuffer ' Set object for new buffer pFCBuffer.Dissolve = True pFCBuffer.ValueDistance = 100 Set pFCBuffer.BufferSpatialReference = pSpaRef Set pFCBuffer.DataFrameSpatialReference = pSpaRef Set pFCBuffer.SourceSpatialReference = pSpaRef Set pFCBuffer.TargetSpatialReference = pSpaRef Dim pCGLayer As ICompositeGraphicsLayer2 Set pCGLayer = New CompositeGraphicsLayer Dim pGLayer As IGraphicsLayer Set pGLayer = pMap.ActiveGraphicsLayer pFCBuffer.BufferToGraphics pGLayer pActiveView.PartialRefresh esriViewGraphics, pElement, Nothing ' [partial refresh of the graphics element.
