Command line syntax

ET_GPPolylineToPolygon <input_dataset> <out_feature_class> {force_closure} {tolerance}


Expression Explanation
<input_dataset> A Polygon feature class or feature layer
<out_feature_class> A String - the full name of the output feature class (A feature class with the same full name should not exist)
 {force_closure} A Boolean indicating whether the non closed polylines must be closed and converted to polygons.
{tolerance} A Double setting the tolerance (in the units of the input dataset) to be used if the force_closure = True. If force_closure = False this parameter is ignored. Open polylines which end points are closer to each other than this tolerance will be closed and converted to polygons

Scripting syntax

ET_GPPolylineToPolygon (input_dataset , out_feature_class, force_closure, tolerance)
