We have some data in SQLite, and i want to know, what is the best practice to store the style. Now my practice is: i finished the stilization, and save them into *.layer files, then load them with workflow into a new drawing. It works fine, but i have some problems and questions:
- The Map layers order is not working well. If i have only one Map layer, with polygon features (they have label), the label is disappear in most cases (its loaded, but the polygons uncover the labels). I have to click the polygon feature, then i need set Draw Order -> Send to Back command (and this is not working well all of the time). In the drawing data is a very helpful command to send all hatch to back (hatchtoback). I want to do this, but with feature data.
- I want export the Map layers (with these styles) to drawing layers, so the drawing object get the feature data as object data. I know the mapimport command, this doint as well, but i can't load the style. I need to create drawing layers, wich contains the feature data, and have a nice style (set from *.layer files). Any Idea?
- How many layer can i load with workflow? Is it stable with hundred of layers? Is parallel the fastest method?
In my opinion: Map layer = contains feature data
Drawing layer = contains drawing data
Thanks in advance!
with layer-files you can save the stylization and the data-source.
If you really need to save the display order the onliest way to save it is the DWG-file that holds the data connections.
