Hi I'm after the annotation information on topology and I need to understand the structure of the: VIB_Display_List (OctetString) attribute.
Can anyone help?
I am a colleague of Dave's on this question and it is quite important we understand this.
Can anyone help or will it need a support call ?
I’m not sure if this answers your question enough or not…
There’s a combination of algorithms that run and process the information from the annotations (text, background, lines etc), the width and height (placement), the zoomscale, and whether it’s grouped or not. I can’t tell exactly how it does it, but it takes that data and stores it in the VIB_Display_List.
Thanks for the reply Jay, we really need detailed information about the structure.
Unfortunately I’m not able to provide the specifics. What are you needing to accomplish? Maybe there’s a different alternative?
I’m currently rendering a topology view in to a webpage using the VIB_IIB_List data, but also want to render the items in the VIB_Display_List, annotations etc.. To do this I need to understand the structure.
Ok, that makes sense. I would suggest opening a case to have our engineering team look into it. From the looks of the code I don’t know if this is something we can provide easily…
