FAQ: Does ArcGIS still support the esriRasterSdeCompressionTypeEnum class?

Question

Does ArcGIS still support the esriRasterSdeCompressionTypeEnum class?

Answer

Since ArcGIS 9.2, the esriRasterSdeCompressionTypeEnum class has been replaced with esriRasterCompressionTypeEnum.

The esriRasterCompressionTypeEnum class is a new enumeration type, which supports writing compressed images to a file, geodatabase, file formats and ArcSDE.

Existing code that uses the deprecated esriRasterSdeCompressionTypeEnum enumeration type is still supported. However, if used explicitly in C#, or other language that does not support implicit casting, a compilation error may occur. In this case, the workaround is to add an explicit cast to the esriRasterCompressionTypeEnum type.
