  • 1.  How To Deactivate A Frame With MapBasic

    Posted 11-03-2023 16:15

    I cannot find a way to deactivate a map frame in a layout using MapBasic.

    I can activate one using:

    Set Layout Window <LayoutWindow> Selection Add Frame ID <frameID>

    Run Menu Command M_LAYOUT_ITEM_ACTIVATE 

    But I can't find how to deactivate it. And while I'm on the topic, it is very cumbersome to not give the user a submenu to deactivate the frame. Making them scroll over and click in the gray area or margin feels really weird.

    Am I missing something here?

    Please help.

    Hi John

    This statement clears any current selection from the layout:

        Set Layout Window nWID Selection Clear

    where nWID is the ID of a layout window.

    The latest version of the WindowHelper tool that is available in the MapInfo Marketplace has a button on the Layout tab for clearing any selection in the layout.

    I hope this helps
