More info - I am not sure why toggling the layer filter on and off does not refresh the query table. There may be a reason. ------------------------------ Bob Fortin Software Architect and Distinguished Engineer MapInfo Pro Development Team ------------------------------

Hi John,  I was just explaining it but I missed your point. It works as designed but maybe is missing something. Since the query table is hidden from end users they cannot easily refresh it from the ui. How is the data getting edited? Manually or other wise? Maybe we can be smarter about when the ...

Hi John, The docs could be clearer. From the help: Note: When Filter is applied on a layer an internal hidden table is created. You can use the LayerInfo( , , LAYER_INFO_FILTER_TABLE_ALIAS) to get the alias of the hidden filter query table. Then the syntax to refresh the table is: select Update ...

I have 2 suggestions to try: 1. On System Settings Preference dialog make sure "Encode Workspaces and Tab Files" is checked. 2. You can add Type "NativeX" before the Overwrite token. -Bob If this does not work contact tech support as I think we should be able to handle this. ------------------------------ ...

Hi Justin, You can now open csv files directly using our OGR support which eliminates the need to separately create points. If the file is not too large you can edit it directly from Pro.  Changes made outside of Pro would be picked up when you opened the tab file referring to the csv file. In table ...

Hi Sergi, In comparing your code to HelloWorld.mb I noticed that you declared a shared function. This does not match with your mapbasic declare method statement as there is no return type on it. Also 'call' is used for calling subroutines not functions. I think since you do not need the return type ...

We do have a way to manually customize context menus in the MapInfoPro.mnu file. It is located here C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\MapInfo\MapInfo\Professional\2100 It is now an xml format, but the initial context menus are loaded from there. Of course if you are going to try this be sure ...

Hi Michele, As Peter says we show up to 40 fields. If there is more than 40 we show indexed fields (also up to 40). In v2021.1 we have improved the "Add Condition"  dialog "Plus button" to allow adding multiple fields. You can also search to find fields. This is very helpful when a table can have ...

Hi Ryan, Were you able to try my suggestion to rule out any add-ins that might be causing an issue? Another way to do this is to simply select them all in the tool manager window and click the unload button. -Bob ------------------------------ Bob Fortin Software Architect and Distinguished ...

Hi Ryan, One idea is to see if the issue is being caused by an add-in. An easy way to do this is to start Pro on a command line with MapInfoPro.exe /noautoload If the issue does not happen then you can try to narrow it down to which tool. If it still happens let us know and we can get tech support ...

Hi Tony, I spent a few hours on friday trying this out. I made two new mapbasic functions that take a variable number of parameters. The first one - PredominantVal(expr1, expr1 [, exprn...]) returns the maximum of the values passed in. The return value has the type of the first expression, so it ...

Hi Tony, Have you given some thought as to what you would need in Pro to make this easier? I think it can be done already by using IIF() or Cond() functions. You should be able to do the same thing you did in excel inside of Pro with a careful update statement to set the value of a new column. ...
