I have a table in manifold 8, one column contains a string with WKT coordinate of a polygon.
I want to populate a a column with the corresponding Geom in order to draw the polygon.
in Manifold9 I know how to do this, very easy. I need it for a colleague who doesnt have manifold 9. He must be able to do it alone in manifold8
I need to do it in Manifold8, I found the following function in the help file : Geom NewGeomFromTextWKT(String text)
Creates new geometric entity from textual data in OGC WKT format.
I tried to use it in an active column in manifold8 (of type Geom), but it doesnt work
Func = NewGeomFromTextWKT(Record.Data("geometry"))
it bugs with the following error : 'type incompatible'. The active column is in type Geom.
Any idea how I can fix that?
