Conditional Custom Tool Parameter For Input Layer

Question asked by pmckinneyccpa on Oct 6, 2017

I'm developing a custom ArcGIS Desktop tool for my Planning department.  I want to provide users with an option for which dataset will be used as an input.  I want them to be able to select between 1) a layer (shapefile or featureclass) or 2) one ore more tax parcel ids that will be used to construct a feature layer using select by attribute.

 

Essentially, they will be choosing the layer from which to clip soils.  They will either be clipping soils against our tax parcels layer or a special feature class representing a farm.

 

I'd like the tool to only allow for one of these inputs based upon a true/false box parameter.  What is the best way to wire this up when creating the custom tool?

 

Thanks,

 

Patrick
