    Return Value

    A RowToken object that represents the row to be created.
    Edit Operation Create Features

    attributes.Add("SHAPE", polygon);
    attributes.Add("NAME", "Corner Market");

    createFeatures.Create(featureLayer, attributes);
    //Create features using the current template
