#4073 closed defect (fixed)

[Shapelib - PATCH] DBFAddNativeFieldType should flush the active record before updating the file

Reported by: Even Rouault Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: OGR_SF Version: unspecified
Severity: normal Keywords: shape CreateField()


The following snippet leads to junk being written in the first record because it is not flushed to disk before adding the second field. The attached patch fixes this by issuing a DBFFlushRecord() at the beginning of DBFAddNativeFieldType.

ds = ogr.GetDriverByName('ESRI Shapefile').CreateDataSource('createfield.dbf')
lyr = ds.CreateLayer('createfield')

lyr.CreateField(ogr.FieldDefn('foo', ogr.OFTString))

feat = ogr.Feature(lyr.GetLayerDefn())
feat.SetField(0, 'foo')

lyr.CreateField(ogr.FieldDefn('bar', ogr.OFTString))

feat = ogr.Feature(lyr.GetLayerDefn())
feat.SetField(1, 'bar')
ds = None
