Hi everibody,
I need to add a shapefile to my map (in ArcEngine) by using the AddShapefile method.
But I'd like to have my personal thematic settings for this shapefile.
Maybe I could use a layer file or layer package with my favourite thematism pre-setted.
Well , so I have to load the shapefile and connect it in some way, to the desired layer file or layer package.
Is this possible? How? Could anyone give me an example?
