Convert Labels to Annotations .NET Sample

Goal: Convert labels to Annotations using ArcObjects.


Method: I ran an ESRI code sample from the documentation and received this error:

"A first chance exception of type 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException' occurred in GdB Subsurface Investigation v103.dll

Additional information: Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.

If there is a handler for this exception, the program may be safely continued."

Code sample found here: Covert Labels Sample Code


This is call I make to the function: ConvertLabelsToGDBAnnotationSingleLayer(pMap, 0, False)

pMap is a properly declared and set IMap object.

There is only one layer in the MXD, and I have confirmed (as expected) that it is found at index 0.

The last parameter is a boolean to set Feature Linked annotations.


The error occurs on this line:

pConvertLabelsToAnnotation.AddFeatureLayer(pGeoFeatureLayer, pGeoFeatureLayer.Name & "_Anno",  pFeatureWorkspace, pFeatureClass.FeatureDataset, featureLinked, False, False, True, True, "")


Also, is there a way to use code tags in this forum?
