I might have had the wrong idea, but was thinking more on the lines of interacting with the SSA front end directly - that is, dynamic linking - via the Precisely Applinking tool or similar (which we at DMM managed to make use of in our GISLink product, hence why I was keen to espouse my knowledge of ...

I do Chris!  You can retrieve the IDs of the current selection within SSA, if that is what you are after.  What are you trying to achieve? ------------------------------ James Nolet Dooley Mitchell & Morrison Pty Ltd Mentone, VIC, Australia ------------------------------

Hi Jane, Does a file called "error_log.txt" exist?  If so, it might be that the mbx program doesn't have write access to this file.  Perhaps deleting it will help. ------------------------------ James Nolet Dooley Mitchell & Morrison Pty Ltd Mentone, VIC, Australia ------------------------------

Hi Nikolaj, After selecting the polygon you want to edit, did you try clicking on the "Onform" (Reshape) option?  This option appears in the "Nodes" drop-down ("Snap til knudepunkter" in Danish, it looks like) and must be turned on before you can use the add nodes functionality. ------------------------------ ...

Hi Luke, The eval function is used to retrieve a value returned by a MapInfo command: sValue = eval("Query1.ColName") In addition, you do not need to open a browser or declare a MapBasic variable.  So your code would become: # Open Table File Open_tabInput = pro.Catalog.OpenTable(tabInput, ...

Hi David, That datum code was valid for MGA projections 15 or 20 years ago.  It is still likely to be recognised within MapInfo Pro but not in SSA. I'm glad to have helped. ------------------------------ James Nolet Dooley Mitchell & Morrison Pty Ltd Mentone, VIC, Australia ------------ ...

Thanks Matt - it's good to have my approach corroborated!  David might find that to change the coordinate system of the Native-MI table a Save-Copy-As in MapInfo will be necessary.  Or export to MIF/MID, change the coordinate system in NotePad and import back in. ------------------------------ James ...

Hi David, From what you say it appears you are carrying out the following steps in order: 1. Creating the table resource manually within Spatial Manager; then 2. Uploading the table settings via the Uploader tool in MapInfo. Is it at the time of Step 2 that the coordinate system is overwritten?  ...

Hi Asko, I noticed you are not populating your array properly.  You need to adjust as follows: Dim nArrayIndex As Integer nArrayIndex = 0  ' Initialisation For i=1 to NumOfTables   j=TableInfo(i, TAB_INFO_TYPE)    If j=1 then     nArrayIndex = nArrayIndex + 1     Array1(nArrayIndex)=TableInfo(i, ...

No, I don't quite get it either, Peter.  Perhaps there are duplicate lines interfering with the labelling.  Taking a look at the data, if that could be made available, might help. ------------------------------ James Nolet Dooley Mitchell & Morrison Pty Ltd Mentone, VIC, Australia --------- ...

You are talking about a label issue aren't you Pradip?  For example, in the below image you would need to drag the chainage labels to their correct position? If that is so, you could try adjusting the labelling options on the layer.  Another possibility would be to create start and end point objects ...

Hi Ayman, To carry out two-way dynamic linking to Tech One products (where selected records in SSA are displayed in the Tech One front end) it is worth checking that the Tech One API is available at your site.  There are other options but these may require some manual steps.  At the SSA end you will ...

Hi Ayman, If you don't want the images on the SSA Server, you could place them on a web server or similar so you can access them via a http:// link.  Anywhere else and when you try linking to them directly (that is, when using a mapped drive) your URL will include the "unsafe" keyword, or fail to ...

You can't quit the program, Kev.  It is that important. You can't shut-down either.... (I hope that helps!) ------------------------------ James Nolet Dooley Mitchell & Morrison Pty Ltd Mentone, VIC, Australia ------------------------------

Hi Nick, Are you sure your client is using SQL Server?  Could they be using PostGIS instead?  From an internet search the error message seems to be common to PostGIS. If SQL Server, you can view the check constraints in SSMS: In your client's case, the check constraint is named "enforce_g ...

Hi Jim, The new guy probably has "the Same Layer" set for the "Move Duplicate Nodes in..." setting.  You can check this setting in the back stage Options, under "Map Preferences" and then the "Editing" tab. ------------------------------ James Nolet Dooley Mitchell & Morrison Pty Ltd Mentone, ...

Hi Mat, Thanks for the information about the aerials.  Where you have older imagery files some transformation might be required, or you can rely on the GIS to re-project on the fly.  When displaying in MapInfo (or Exponare), it might be only a matter of updating the coordinates in the reference file ...

Hi Virginia & Mat, Viriginia - I thought I might just add to Mat's helpful process by mentioning that if going with FME and writing spatial data to SQL Server you will need the more expensive Database Edition of FME Desktop rather than the Professional Edition. Mat - Did you do anything with your ...

Hi Russell, I've seen a problem where a field called 'Date' existed in the table I was trying to display.  I'm just wondering if the use of the 'Name' field causes a similar problem. Otherwise, perhaps you can simplify the View you are trying to query to narrow down where the issue lies. -- ...
