Split On Edit

The Split on Edit tool provides faster splitting of lines when junction features are created. Split on Edit splits the line before creating the feature. When Split on Edit is set, it does not allow the ArcFM Segment Split autoupdater to execute—Split on Edit itself performs the split.

This functionality only works when placing a feature using the ArcFM Attribute Editor in ArcMap. It does not work if you use ArcGIS editing tools, or create features outside of ArcMap. The Split on Edit functionality does not impact the way your autoupdaters are set. They should be left unchanged for two reasons. When Split on Edit is triggered, the Split autoupdater (which fires later in the process) detects that the junction is being added at an endpoint, and does not split the line again. If you edit with ArcGIS editing tools (or edit outside of ArcMap), Split on Edit does not get triggered, and you need the autoupdater to split the line as usual.

Split on Edit also respects the ESRI_SPLITWITHUPDATE class model name, which determines the method by which ArcFM tools split lines.

Configuring Features to Split

Following is the configuration that allows a point feature to split a line when the point feature is placed.

Related Objects (e.g. ConductorInfo table)

Assign the CONDUCTORINFO model name on the Object Info tab (the Related Object AUs mentioned below require this model name).

Line Feature (e.g. Primary Underground)

  • Assign the SPLITTARGET model name on the Object Info tab.

  • Assign the ArcFM Save Related Objects AU to the Before Feature Split event.

  • Assign the ArcFM Split Feeder Object AU to the On Feature Split event.

  • Assign the ArcFM Restore Related Objects AU to the After Feature Split event.

Point Feature (e.g. Switch)

  • Assign the ArcFM Segment Split AU to the On Feature Create event on the Object Info tab.

  • Set the Split On Edit feature property to Yes.
