FeatureSet.CoordinateType.Z: creating an XYZM shapefile

The CoordinateType is not being passed into result:
In FeatureSet.cs:928 add:
result.CoordinateType = CoordinateType;
which fixes the problem.


I am trying to create an XYZM shapefile, but the CoordinateType stays "Regular" although I set the FeatureSet CoordinateType to CoordinateType.Z.

Example code:
            string outfile = @"c:\temp\outfile.shp";
            IFeatureSet fs = new FeatureSet();
            Coordinate c = new Coordinate(10.1, 20.2, 3.3, 4.4);
            IFeature f = new Feature(c);

            fs.CoordinateType = CoordinateType.Z;
            fs.Projection = KnownCoordinateSystems.Geographic.World.WGS1984;
            fs.DataTable.Columns.Add(new DataColumn(("ID"), typeof (int)));

            f = fs.AddFeature(f);

            f.ShapeType = ShapeType.PointZ;

            f.DataRow["ID"] = 1;

            fs.SaveAs(outfile, true);
When I debug saving of the feature to a Shapefile, the Shapefile's CoordinateType is Regular, althoug I've set the FeatureSet CoordinateType to CoordinateType.Z

Am I doing something wrong or is this a known issue? (I saw two similar posts which went unanswered).

Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.

Yes, as you mentioned earlier, it was an issue.
Now it is fixed.
