  • Using all the values stored in an array?

    I created an array of generic points based on some off the hit points I read out of a couple of different features. I used a loop command to do this, but didnt define the array initially? Also I let PCDMIS define the array all on its own, not sure If this is where I went wrong or not. For some reason cant figure out the array command even with the DMIS help file? Anyway...

    When the program was executed the array values all seem correct, and each one could be called individually without any problems.

    My problem is that once all the values were stored in the array, I wanted to use all of these feature points in the array to create another feature, like a circle or plane for example. The software for whatever reason however only used the last value in the array to construct the plane or circle, which of course doesnt help. I could read all of the values out of the array one by one into new features, but this defeats the purpose of the array in the first place.

    For the time being I just read all of the hits I want into a individually created Generic point. Instead of using the shorter version of reading all of the values I wanted out using a loop.

    I would prefer to be able to use the array method as this would shorten my code up significantly and make it easier for me to program.

    Anyone know what I might have been doing wrong, so that I couldnt use all of the points stored in my arrays to construct another feature?

    post program example???

    When ou tried to construct the latter feature, did you simplay name the array as a single component to the construction? Or did you reference the individual members of the array?
