Hello to all

This below is an image representing the Porto Cervo Marina map.



I would like to create a designer to recognize each single boat place using an hotspot that must contains the boat place ID and other useful information about the boat ID and/or customer ID who rented the boat place in a given date.

Surfing the examples in Windev, i found a useful tool (WD Graphic Objects) that could resolve my needed.
The main problem is that some based functions are not present, like zoom, rotate and object property. I admit i'm not so confident with OOP has the tool is developed, so i have some difficulties to add by myself the missing features.

Any idea on how to start developing an application like that or on how to improve the WD Graphic Object tool?

Thanks in advance
Gianni

Hi Gianni,

I have used the Metadraw OCX and Windev for this kind of functionality in the past.
Take a look here:
http://www.bennet-tec.com/btProducts/MetaDraw/MetaDraw.html
Just make sure that the company is still in business, before going on with the demo(s).
I think that the demo OCX is FULLY functional so you can try before actually purchasing it - It works fine with WinDev (in 32 bit apps and in the 32 bit WD IDE).

But there was a full app (with source code) - with this functionality - in one of PCSofts LST Magazine issues in the past. It even included an app to design your "maps" before using them in your app - take a look here:

Unfortunately I lost my copy (and the CD) sometime ago (or my wife throwed it away) before I had the chance to read it ...

Hi Steven

Yes, i already know Metadraw component. I've used it few years ago for a project and now
i'm getting back to it, but because of lose my Metadraw license i can't use it.

Thank for the info about the LST demo.
