Configure the display of ENC content.

Use case

The S-52 standard defines how Electronic Navigational Chart (ENC) content should be displayed to ensure that data is presented consistently across every charting system. S-52 defines several display options, including variations on symbology to ensure that charts are readable both at night and in direct sunlight.

How to use the sample

The sample displays an electronic navigational chart when it opens. Use the options to choose variations on colors and symbology.

How it works

  1. Load the ENC exchange set.
  2. Configure EncEnvironmentSettings.Default.DisplaySettings as specified by the user. The sample exposes options for color scheme, area symbolization, and point symbolization.
  3. When the view unloads, call ResetToDefaults on the various display settings. Because the settings affect all ENCs displayed by Runtime, failing to reset them would affect other views.
