ILocatorWorkspace.GetLocator Method

Gets a locator.

[Visual Basic .NET]
Public Function GetLocator ( _
    ByVal Name As String _
) As ILocator
public ILocator GetLocator (
    string Name


The GetLocator method retrieves a locator from a locator workspace.


The Name parameter is the name of the locator that you want to retrieve from the locator workspace.

Within the default local locator workspace, and within ArcSDE locator workspaces, locator names are prefixed by a user name, as in "jack.My Locator". In local locator workspaces, the locator name is prefixed by the user name of the current user. In ArcSDE workspaces, the locator name is prefixed by the name of the ArcSDE user that owns the locator. When you call methods in ArcObjects that have parameters that specify locators in a locator workspace, you must specify the full name of the locator, including the user name. Failing to do so will result in an error.
