Need a way to identify centroid within a shape

Hi

I need what could be call a XFM version of the Topology Tool called "Associate Linkages"

I have some XFM based centoids with attributes.

Then with the Topology tool "Create Shapes" I create all the complex shapes and there is nice areas on each shape feature.

Basically I then just need to transfer the area value from the shape feature  to an attibute on the centoid within the shape.

But how do I find the connection Shape->centroid 

This is all going to end up in a vba application, so programming is not a problem -but jumping to MapManager will is not so desirable.

  • Greetings Erik,

    The "Copy Centroid Business Properties To Polygon Feature Instances" example provides a minimum user interface...

    ...which allows the Bentley Map user to select a centroid (or point) feature class and polygon feature class then perform a copy of one or more selected business properties from the centroid to the surrounding polygon feature instance. With your VBA programming skills you should be able to modify this example to transfer the business properties in the other direction (e.g. from the polygons to the contained centroids).

    Please let me know if you require further assistance.
