comment:1 by chrisErickson, 14 years ago

As an addition to this, when passing Enumerations that are bitwise in a DotNet API, you can still use the Enum name in the signature rather than casting it to an int. This makes the API much more friendly, especially when there are similarly named enumerations.

For instance: with a given enum of:

public enum GeometricType {

GeometricType_Point = 1, GeometricType_Curve = 2, GeometricType_Surface = 4, GeometricType_Solid = 8,


The signature for int GeometricPropertyDefinition::GeometryTypes could be: GeometryType GeometricPropertyDefinition::GeometryTypes

and GeometryTypes can return GeometricType_Solid | GeometricType_Surface

Similarly, void GeometricPropertyDefinition::set_SpecificGeometryTypes(GeometryType[] types, int length) could be void GeometricPropertyDefinition::set_SpecificGeometryTypes(GeometryType types)

and the user could hand in GeometricPropertyDefinition::set_SpecificGeometryTypes(GeometricType_Solid | GeometricType_Surface)

The GeometricType Enumeration is currently defined in the FDO 3.3.0 Managed API as...

enum OSGeo::FDO::Schema::GeometricType

in file...


as follows...

/// \ingroup (OSGeoFDOSchema)
/// \brief
/// The GeometricType enumeration categorizes all of the geometry types
/// supported by FDO based on their geometric dimensionality.
public __value enum GeometricType
    /// Represents 0-dimensional geometric primitives, such as Points.
    GeometricType_Point = 0x01,

    /// Represents 1 dimensional geometric primitives, such as Curves and Lines.
    GeometricType_Curve = 0x02,

    /// Represents 2 dimensional geometric primitives, such as Polygons.
    GeometricType_Surface = 0x04,

    /// Represents 3 dimensional geometric primitives, such as Cubes.
    GeometricType_Solid = 0x08,

    /// All
    GeometricType_All = 0x01|0x02|0x04|0x08


GeometricPropertyDefinition pGeomProp = new GeometricPropertyDefinition("Geometry", "location and shape");
pGeomProp.GeometryTypes = GeometricType.GeometricType_All;
pGeomProp.HasMeasure = true;
pGeomProp.ReadOnly = true;
pGeomProp.SpatialContextAssociation = "SC_0";
pGeomProp.Attributes.Add("Measure Units", "metres");

I am using FDO 3.3 RC1 in .net and cannot see the enum described?!

Ok. I see the issue. The enum is defined but not exported to the .NET Assembly.
