Ticket #290 (closed enhancement: fixed)
Allow shapeindex in mapserver expressions
|Reported by:||palle@…||Owned by:||sdlime|
[shapeindex] (or [shpidx] or [recno]) should be allowed in mapserver expressions to allow query on multiple shapeindices. Here is my original mail to the mapserver-users list, and Stephen Lime's answer: Fra: "Steve Lime" <email@example.com> Til: <firstname.lastname@example.org>, <email@example.com> Dato: 05/03/2003 16:52 Emne: Re: [Mapserver-users] INDEXNQUERY The best way to implement would be by allowing you to query by index. That is treat the index as a normal column in MapServer expressions. That way you'd just use the itemquery and itemnquery modes. That's a lot easier to add then a totally new query mode. Please file this as a feature enhancement and I'll add it to 3.7.

This would allow me to find and display multiple shapes by index. However, this does not exist. I guess I could achieve the same result with a filter, but I am afraid that performance wouldn't be up to standards. Does anyone have a suggestion regarding how to implement this? I am normally using PERL mapscript for advanced purposes, but I would prefer a normal CGI solution. Best regards Palle Due Larsen, Carl Bro GIS&IT
