Custom Tool In Map Viewer

Discussion created by avigis on Nov 5, 2012
Hi everyone,

I am working on a project to develop a tool for watershed delineation. I am using ArcObjects 10.1 with Java.

Just to increase the user comfort, I was thinking about creating a map viewer where all the rasters involved can be shown as they are generated by this tool.

I was reading here http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/arcobjects-java/concepts/engine/index.html#//0001000006s7000000
and I realized that I can add several standard tools like zoom, pan etc and also custom tools.

My question is if can insert a complex tool, like mine (which will do all hydrological analysis at once), into this map viewer along with a dialog like the tools in Desktop?

I do not have much experience with the swing or ArcObjects, so I was wondering if you guys can give me some guidelines or point out some resources on this.

Thanks in advance,
