Frequently asked question

Can a feature class be programmatically demoted to an object class?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


No. Data becomes unstable if the behavior class of a simple esricore.feature is changed to an esricore.object by using IClassSchemaEdit::AlterInstanceClass or IFeatureWorkspaceSchemaEdit::AlterClassExtensionCLSID.
