Sorry it looks like I rushed the answer. It seems we have not exposed a method in EFAL to set a generic key/value metadata tag, so although the underlying code would use it if it was there, there is currently no way to set it. ------------------------------ Bob Fortin Software Architect and Distinguished ...

Update, There is some bad data in the marketplace causing an issue. Try turning off Marketplace search in the quicksearch tool context menu. Or try not autoloading quicksearch We will fix the data and also have a fix to prevent it from impacting startup time in 2019.3 ------------------------------ Bob ...

Hi Nick, Your post is timely. We just noticed the same thing today. We are looking into it. When a tool is loaded or unloaded quicksearch updates its list of ribbon commands. But we are not quite sure what is slowing it down yet. We are not sure if it is related to the option to search the mapinfo marketplace ...

Hi, Sorry for the delay, When a table is opened we do not keep the files locked. They are only locked when reading or writing to them. Sorry for the confusion, there is no second copy of the tables files, either in memory or on disk. In MDAL you can use table.BeginAccess() to lock a table for read or ...

Hi Miroslav, I looks like you want the row deleted event to be fired when the Pro user deletes a row via the ui. If that is the case then this will not work. Unfortunately the MDAL library operates in its own app domain with a separate copy of the table, (which is why you have to call OpenTable()). The ...

Hi Miroslav, MDAL has limited support for linked tables. Did you try this on a plain native or nativex table? -Bob ------------------------------ Bob Fortin Software Architect and Distinguished Engineer MapInfo Pro Development Team ------------------------------

Kostas, The samples are included with the mapbasic install under Samples\RibbonInterface\DotNet ProSampleAddin shows how to dock a windows forms control. There is also a docking manager sample and many others although in version 15 there would be less than we have now. You could probably keep most of ...

Hi Kostas, First, the bad news: Starting with the 64 bit versions, our docking manager changed and we no longer supported the COM based docking APIs. Recently we have been bringing back some old COM functionality to assist people like you with older apps moving to 64 bit. I have filed a bug for us to ...

There is SelectionCount and SelectionBaseTable and Co ...

Hi George, Have you tried hiding the explorer and or table list windows? Another idea is to start Pro without any addins via /noautoload command line option. If this helps, we also have several ways to stop propagating events we can explore. -Bob ------------------------------ Bob Fortin Software Architect ...
