This method returns the FeatureAPI object corresponding to the map. The method is used as shown below.
In VC++, allocated on the heap (assuming mapAPI is an instance of MapAPI):
IFeatureAPI* featAPI = new IFeatureAPI;
featAPI->m_lpDispatch = mapAPI.getFeatureAPI();
In VC++, on the stack (assuming mapAPI is an instance of MapAPI):
featAPI.m_lpDispatch = mapAPI.getFeatureAPI();
In VB (assuming mapAPI is a MapAPI object):
In the declarations:
Public featAPI As Object
Private featAPI As Object
Set featAPI = mapAPI.getFeatureAPI
The client receives an instance of this object shared by other clients, if any.
