     Re-upload of my application since the crash of PSC ... not sure why this app didn't make the CD? Anyway, this program is much like ESRI's ArcCatalog, but only works with shapefiles (.shp/.shx/.dbf). Explains the reading in of GIS data from the ESRI shapefile format (.dbf is poorly done) but, there is also some viewport scaling lessons for those interested in converting from world coordinates to device coordinates. I may upload an enhanced version with more appropriate .dbf access. I also need to solve the lack of colour categorization of linear features instead of having just black linework. Hope this provides useful code for those geographer/programmer out there!

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

Soleh - This module serves to display the world coordinates of the cursor in the LabelErrorMessage object as the mouse moes over the shapefile display viewport. You will have to be more specific about what error you are getting ...
