FieldGenius Points Data

Post by Bill Tellier » Sun Mar 23, 2003 1:52 pm

I uploaded some points from a MSCAD2002 project and only part of the point description was transferred. The point data was something like this

1 5000.000 6500.000 102.00 SF:102con.match

There was about 50 points I transferred with this type of information in them. I need this information in the field as it is pertinent to what I'm staking out. The SF stands for a SurFace point, the 102con stands for elevation 102.00 contour and it is the daylight point at the existing ground match. What part of the point's description is the actual description and what part is the Note and how do I transfer ALL of the point's descriptions/Notes to the Field Genius :?: After reviewing the points data within the FG all of the information is there, but it is not being displayed with the HUD on and picking the point on-screen. The only information displayed is the point's Desc and not the Note. :oops:

Hello Bill,

Currently the FieldGenius description field and note fields are limited to 8 and 30 characters respectively.

In your example (1 5000.000 6500.000 102.00 SF:102con.match) anything that falls before the colon is the description, anything after is the note.

You're correct in that the HUD doesn't display any information stored in the note field and we need to fix this. A work around is to toggle off the HUD which will cause our old store and edit dialog to appear when a point is tapped.
