CEDRA Avenue Wraps with the increased use and popularity of ArcGIS, the need to migrate Avenue-based applications to the ArcGIS environment has increased significantly. As such, many developers and educational institutions are faced with the dilemma of how to efficiently convert their Avenue code into a format that utilizes ArcObjects, and which is compatible with ArcGIS. One approach, which this book addresses, is to develop a series of "wraparounds" that facilitates the conversion process. That is, the creation of a library of procedures that emulate the function of Avenue requests. By establishing a one to one correspondence between Avenue requests and "wraparounds", the developer is able to substitute an Avenue request with the appropriate "wraparound", thereby significantly reducing the amount of time required to perform the conversion. Topics covered include: general Avenue to VB/VBA syntax differences, Views, Themes, Tables, Selection Sets, Graphic Elements, Querying, Calculating, File I/O operations, Message Boxes, Progress Bars, User-Document interaction, Manipulation of Feature Shapes, Legends, Classifications, Application deployment, and many others.
