Feature Cursor adds incorrect feature to ISet

Question asked by ginomellino on Jan 30, 2013

Hi all,

I am attempting to create a collection of IFeature objects based on whether or not they fail a test so that I can add them into a new featureclass (as a kind of error report - if there is a better way to accomplish this then please please please let me know). I use a featurecursor to test each feature for geometry and attribute matches and then if they fail I add them to an ISet (pSet.Add(pFtr)). The problem is that when I do this instead of adding the erroneous features it adds ONLY the final feature in the test feature set. I have not been able to find any information about this which makes me think, a.) This is a random one off bug or b.) There is a much better way to do this. Can anyone please tell me where I am going wrong with this?

Thanks in advance
