Hi All,

I have been asked to program a new tool that would imitate the Eliminate functionality of ArcToolbox.  However, they want me to eliminate the smallest polygon, instead of the largest one, as is the default functionality of ArcToolbox.  I need to program this is in Visual Studio 2008 using Visual Basic.Net.  Does anyone know if this is possible, to change the default functionality of Eliminate to delete the smallest sliver polygon, instead of eliminating the largest?  Any sample code would be greatly appreciated. 

Thanks in advance.
