[GIS] ArcMap commands .NET code equivalent


What is the .NET code equivalent for this general ArcMap command syntax:


I have been using this one below as a work around, however it is much more code than what I would like to use.

Dim pUID As New UID
Dim pCmdItem As ICommandItem
'Use the GUID of the Save command
pUID.Value = "{AB073B49-DE5E-11D1-AA80-00C04FA37860}"
'or you can use the ProgID
'pUID.Value = "esriArcMapUI.MxFileMenuItem"
pUID.SubType = 3
pCmdItem = m_App.Document.CommandBars.Find(pUID)

Best Answer

That's about the best way that you can do it (that I know of).

You might be able to tack on Execute at the end of your pCmdItem assignment, i.e.

pCmdItem = m_App.Document.CommandBars.Find(pUID).Execute()

but that's the only "optimization" I can think of. A lot of overhead is taken care of when you're using ArcMap rather than ArcEngine.
