[GWP] Display selected objects only?

Hi,

using Geo Web Publisher, is there a way or a workaround how to display selected objects only?

I am using Geo Web Site with Map Viewer now, but my question is more general: If there is a group of identified objects (selected in MapViewer or a result of search etc.), is there a tool / way / API how to isolate them and to display them separately without their original layer(s)? The object can reside on different layers, not always in one only.

The reason my question is results from user query can be plenty of quite complex objects, so to highlight them only is not enough if also the rest of layers content is displayed. It would be nice to have e.g. MapViewer API to copy an element identified by its rendition id to own overlay layer, but I have not found function.

With regards,

  Jan

    Without considering the API, three features can be utilized to assist in visual isolation of search results from a *single* layer.

    From within the Site Author's Search object:

    -Select Graphical Elements:
    (available, when the map layer is set as 'selectable', within the Map Author)
    This will allow the items in question to be selected, and thus to appear in the highlight color

    -Show persistent symbols:
    This would allow display of an additional raster symbol at a set (persistent) pixel size, denoting the object.

    -Layer Display Change as a Result of the Search:
    This allows append/override of the current layer display, as a result of the search

    These features may not allow you to achieve the goal stated, when your results are obtained from *multiple* graphical source layers.
    Can you elaborate on how you are arriving at this presently?

    thanks,
