hi all.

this code is for get selected Feature FID:



       private void map1_SelectionChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
            //  DotSpatial.Data.IFeature feat = map1.GetFeatureLayers()[0].DataSet.GetFeature(0);
            //  this.Text = feat.DataRow.ItemArray.GetValue(0).ToString();
            List<IFeature> ls1 = new List<IFeature>();
            FeatureLayer fl1 = map1.Layers[0] as FeatureLayer;
            ISelection il1 = fl1.Selection;
                ls1 = il1.ToFeatureList();
                this.Text = "";
                for (int i = 0; i < il1.Count; i++)
                    this.Text += ls1[i].Fid.ToString()+" , "; //FID
                    this.Text += ls1[i].DataRow.ItemArray.GetValue(0).ToString() + " , "; //attribute 


Good luck.

well done bro!!! Although I went backwards to using MapWinGIS 6 to implement this function after so many days of trying and looking through documentations, I will however try it to see how it works. Thanks buddy!!! Nice code too :)

well guys, I meet problem with this code while I get the fid from the mappointlayer! I selected some point in the mappointlayer then use your code to get the fid,but there is one feature return the fid equals -1? how this happened? I will very appreciate with anyone's help!

if you open the attribute table of this layer manually in the legend control before running your code, check whats the FID there. if its 0 then fine and if it is -1 then the shapefile is corrupt i guess.

well, if the file is corrupt, then can the file be added to the map using the map.addlayer()? Thanks!

The file has no problems, the problem is ISelection, I have tried to solve the problem and the only thing I've accomplished is through code load and unload shapefile and the problem is solved FID >=0 ...

Using the FID RecordNumber instead, there is no assurance that the run of each element indexshape and the file may be damaged...

I tried the following but I used to map the selection on this fine but the FID becomes -1 for all elements of the selection shape...


Dim fLayer As  FeatureLayer
.'Here my code


anybody solution the problem?

you can go to look into the source code for the map.functionmode=functionmode.identify;

ok I will review and comment how me was...

Thanks lzz0517......

I look into the source code for the functionmode.identify in DotSpatial.Controls.FeatureIdentifier and that helped me a lot thanks lzz0517....  :D

I post the code for anyone who has had the same problem FID = -1

Dim fLayer As  FeatureLayer
            'Here code for load fLayer
If Not IsNothing(fLayer) Then
  Dim result As List(Of IFeature) = New List(Of IFeature)()
  For Each feature As IFeature In result
    If Not IsDBNull(feature.ShapeIndex) Then
    End If
End If
