Hello - I am in a situation where my Python arcpy scripts are limited (the arcpy API is limited I should say) so I can't create a satisfactory script tool and I can't use a model to create a tool I want because some of the things I need aren't found in the Esri built-in toolboxes.  That leaves me with needing to create my own tool using ArcObjects and making that available in my toolbox as a custom built-in tool.  My problem is that I can't seem to find any documentation that tells me how to take my ArcObject classes and make them available as a built-in tool that I can add to my toolbox.  I hope I explained that coherently.  Any thoughts on how I may go about doing this??

Thanks - Peter

Hi

Not simple but possible.
Here is a full example: http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/arcobjects-net/conceptualhelp/0001/0001000002r6000000.htm

Have Fun

Mody - Thanks for the reply.  The link you supplied is similar to what I recently found at http://resources.esri.com/help/9.3/arcgisengine/java/doc/7894e53d-6fff-4459-9d53-233f172653b2.htm.  This other link though deals with Java ArcObjects which is the language I needed anyway.  So... there does seem to be a way to do this.  I will give it a shot. 

Thanks - Peter
