Assign Edit Task

Edit tasks support user interaction when placing a feature. A simple example is the ArcFM Manual Angle Setter, which requires the user to set the rotation angle for the symbol when adding a new point feature.

Edit tasks can also be used with other editing tools. Such a combination could prompt the user to click a central point feature (transformer) and several service points. The Radial Edit Task constructs a line feature (conductor) to connect the transformer to each service point. (See Building Custom ArcFM Edit Tasks in the ArcFM Solution Developer Help for more information about customization.) A list of edit tasks provided with ArcFM is available in the Appendix.

  1. Select a feature class in the Catalog Tree.
  2. Click the ArcFM Properties Manager button on the ArcFM Solution toolbar.

    If you don't select a subtype, <ALL> appears in the window bar to indicate that edit task applies to all subtypes of the feature class.
  5. Select Create Edit Task.
  6. Select an edit task from the drop-down menu.
