How To: Prevent polygon fills from leaking into the background-ArcGIS 8.x

Summary

At certain view scales, the entire view outside the polygon changes colors to match the colors within some of the polygons. This is caused by a polygon shapefile being "dirty".

Procedure

The following steps will show how to "clean" the polygon shapefile.

  1. Run the Clean Shapefile utility located in the ArcObjects Developer Kit.

    Code:
    C:\arcgis\arcexe83\ArcObjectsDeveloperKit\Samples\Utilities\CleanShapefile.


    Note:
    If you don't have the Developer Kit loaded, you can download this utility from ESRI's support site. See Related Information below.

  2. Select a shapefile for export.
  3. Type the name for the output shapefile.
