Ticket #508 (closed enhancement: fixed)
Enhancements to rectObj
|Reported by:||sgillies@…||Owned by:||sgillies@…|
Extending rectObj with a 4-arg constructor so that we can initialize a rectObj r = rectObj(-110.0, 37.0, -105.0, 40.0) and also a toPolygon method which uses msRectToPolygon and allows s = r.toPolygon() # new shapeobj instance from the rectObj For completeness, it would be nice to have a method that returns the four principle values as a tuple, allowing minx, miny, maxx, maxy = r.toTuple() or mapobj.setExtent(r.toTuple()) # setExtents takes the same arguments as # the rectObj constructor Also nice to have would be toWKT and toWKB methods for use with PostGIS and GEOS, although these might be better implemented for the shapeObj class. Am also considering a toString method with a single separator argument allowing bbox = r.toString(',') # returns '-110.0,37.0,-105.0,40.0' This is functionality that I require all the time. These enhancements are part of a project that I am tentatively calling the Primitive Mapscript Classes project. Have made a Wiki page: http://mapserver.gis.umn.edu/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?PrimitiveMapScriptClassesProject and from this Wiki page will link back to Bugzilla. Maybe this can serve as a template for other such projects.
