I am looking for the identifiers for the method ICommandBars.Find(object identifier) method in the ArcObjects. During web search I found the following page, that used the class ArcID, but I cannot find it anywhere.

I need to get the CommandItemfor the Start Editing command.


Please have a look at this page. You can use or execute it as follows:

        object helpme = "{59D2AFD0-9EA2-11D1-9165-0080C718DF97}";
        ESRI.ArcGIS.esriSystem.UID uid = new ESRI.ArcGIS.esriSystem.UIDClass();
        uid.Value = helpme;
        //For accessing some sub menues you can use the SubType attribute
        //uid.SubType = 9;

        //Search the commandbars
        ESRI.ArcGIS.Framework.ICommandBars commandBars = ArcMap.Application.Document.CommandBars;

        //Find the command
        ESRI.ArcGIS.Framework.ICommandItem commandItem = commandBars.Find(uid, false, false);

        //Execute the command
        if (commandItem != null)
