I have successfully created polygon symbols and have placed them on a layout. However, when I place the symbol onto a layout, the symbol has no outline, though I am assigning it when I create the symbol. It seems pretty straight forward, but perhaps I am missing something.
Here is a code fragment creating the symbol and theoretically assigning the outline bit:
CIMHSVColor ClassColor = CIMHSVColor.FromXml(pLegClass.ColorXML);
CIMStroke outline = SymbolFactory.Instance.ConstructStroke(ColorFactory.Instance.BlackRGB, 2, SimpleLineStyle.Solid);
CIMPolygonSymbol pPolygonSymbol = SymbolFactory.Instance.ConstructPolygonSymbol(ClassColor, SimpleFillStyle.Solid, outline);
I am able to place the symbol on the layout, but no outline appears. I have tried adjusting the width when creating the CIMStroke outline, but it has no effect. The following image is an example of what I am seeing.
Any insight is appreciated.
Thomas, can you post a slightly larger context....for example, in your code, are you creating a layout element that uses your symbol? Can you provide that too?.
I definitely have egg on my face. Some revisions by an associate set the outline color to white that I wasn't aware of, essentially overwriting my earlier symbol assignment. Sorry for the post and the time spent.
Thanks for inquiring regarding this. The symbols are behaving as advertised.
