I'm in the process of converting an Addin written in ArcObjects to an ArcGIS Pro Addin. I need to rotation everything in a point layer using the values stored in the ANGlE field. In ArcObjects I was able to define a rotation renderer like this then apply to the entire point layer,

pRotationRenderer.RotationField = "ANGLE"    ' ANGLE is the name of a field in the feature class
pRotationRenderer.RotationType = esriSymbolRotationType.esriRotateSymbolGeographic

How do I achieve this using the ArcGIS Pro SDK?

I've not yet had a chance to develop in ArcGIS Pro but a quick whizz around their API help file I would suggest you explore the CIM model and have a look at the symbology examples for inspiration.

  • Thanks for your suggestion. Unfortunately I've already combed through most of the examples but couldn't find a way to pass the angle column in. Each point's angle are different and there are hundreds of points in a layer I really don't want to have to loop through each point and set the angle one by one.
