Prototype and description of the function getcoordform() (Function of the unlock requiring group "Parameter determination") |

getcoordform() Determination of the east and north component notations of a 2D Coordinate System. Prototype of the DLL function in C++ syntax (attend lower case!): extern "C" __declspec(dllimport) unsigned long __stdcall getcoordform( unsigned short wCoordSys, unsigned short wCoordLength, char **pszCoordFmEa, unsigned short *wCoordLgEa, char **pszCoordFmNo, unsigned short *wCoordLgNo, unsigned short *wCoordTyp); Prototype of the DLL function in Visual Objects syntax: _DLL function getcoordform(; wCoordSys as word,; // 2 Byte wCoordLength as word,; // 2 Byte pszCoordFmEa ref psz,; // 4 Byte, char**, 30 alloc. wCoordLgEa ref word,; // 4 Byte pszCoordFmNo ref psz,; // 4 Byte, char**, 30 alloc. wCoordFmNo ref word,; // 4 Byte wCoordTyp ref word); // 4 Byte as logic pascal:geodll32.getcoordform // 4 Byte The allocation of memory for "ref psz" / "char**" is necessary only if setstringallocate(FALSE) is called before. The function returns the east and north component notations of the 2D Coordinate System fitting to wCoordSys in the string parameters pszCoordFmEa (east component) and pszCoordFmNo (north component). The notations are expanded by adding decimal places to the size indicated in wCoordLength. The notations of alphanumeric coordinates are not expanded. The minimum number of digits or characters necessary for the east and north components are returned in the parameters wCoordLgEa and wCoordLgNo. The notations are returned in the language set by the function setLanguage() before. The parameters are passed and/or returned as follows: wCoordSys Coordinate System, for which the notations are to be determined. The available Coordinate Systems are specified in the list "Coordinate Reference Systems". wCoordLength Length, to which the notations are expanded by adding decimal places. Passing a zero causes the representation of the notations with only one decimal place. Passing the value 1000 causes the representation without any decimal places. pszCoordFmEa The string with the notation of the east component of the (ref) coordinate is returned by reference. The exactly format of the notation is described in the list "Defaults of the coordinate systems". Note: "ref pszCoordFmEa" corresponds to "char**" in C. 30 bytes of memory for the zero terminated string must be allocated with dependence to the call of the function setstringallocate(). Please consider the notes in the description of the function setstringallocate(). wCoordLgEa The minimum number of digits or characters necessary for the (ref) east component of the coordinate is returned by reference. pszCoordFmNo The string with the notation of the north component of the (ref) coordinate is returned by reference. The exactly format of the notation is described in the list "Defaults of the coordinate systems". Note: "ref pszCoordFmNo" corresponds to "char**" in C. 30 bytes of memory for the zero terminated string must be allocated with dependence to the call of the function setstringallocate(). Please consider the notes in the description of the function setstringallocate(). wCoordLgNo The minimum number of digits or characters necessary for the (ref) north component of the coordinate is returned by reference. wCoordTyp The type of the Coordinate System is returned by reference: (ref) 0 = numeric Coordinate System 1 = alphanumeric Coordinate System returnVal In case of an error the function returns FALSE, otherwise TRUE. The returned notations and numbers of digits / characters looks dependently of the Coordinate System and the desired return length (here 10) e.g. like this: Geographic coordinates [deg, min, sec]: vdddmmss.s 8 vddmmss.ss 7 0 or Austrian Gauss-Krueger coordinates: kkkmmm.mmm 6 kkkmmm.mmm 6 0 or British National grid: aaeeeeennnnn 12 ‹blank› 0 1 Unlocking: This function is a component of the unlock requiring function group "parameter determination". It is unlocked for unrestricted use together with the other functions of the group by passing the unlock parameters, acquired from the software distribution company, trough the function setunlockcode(). Without unlocking only a few function calls for test purposes (shareware principle) are possible. |
