Switch on labels

Here is a small piece of code, which can be used to switch on labels. Why do I feel it to be on the post? ¬†Well, due to its simplicity. Have a look: –

Public Sub SwitchOnLabels(pFeatLayer As IFeatureLayer, DisplayField As String)

Dim pGFLayer As IGeoFeatureLayer
Set pGFLayer = pFeatLayer

Dim pLabelEngine As ILabelEngineLayerProperties
Set pLabelEngine = New LabelEngineLayerProperties
Dim pAnnoLayerProps As IAnnotateLayerProperties

Set pAnnoLayerProps = pLabelEngine
Set pAnnoLayerProps.FeatureLayer = pGFLayer

Dim exp As String
exp = "[" & DisplayField & "]"
pLabelEngine.Expression = exp
pLabelEngine.IsExpressionSimple = True
pGFLayer.AnnotationProperties.Add pLabelEngine
pGFLayer.DisplayAnnotation = True
End Sub
