MapSearch (Version 0.50)
For: MapInfo Pro/MapBasic
By: Egge-Jan Pollé
The MapSearch function allows you to search for objects in the current Map window, based on values in a given column in a table (e.g. a municipality by it's name).
MapSearch offers functionality comparable to the existing Find function in MapInfo Professional.
First you will need to specify (or respecify) the table and column to search.
Then a dialog will appear where you can enter a value (e.g. a part of the municipality name).
The list with possible results will be updated while you type.
After selecting a value and clicking OK the object(s) found will be highlighted (selected) and the Map window will zoom in to them.
The MapSearch button and the MapSearch menu item (in the Query menu) will only be enabled when the front window is a map window.
Please see the file MapSearch.zip for the application (MapSearch.MBX, MSearch.dll and MSearchDialog.dll) and the source code (MapSearch.MB and MSearchDialog.cs).
This application is compatible with MapInfo Professional 9.5 and higher (because it uses some .NET capabilities)
The C# source code is included. You can compile the file using the Visual C# 2008 Compiler:
csc /t:library MSearchDialog.cs
(No Visual Studio needed :-)
