To Display the Design Element Linked to One of the Records
This procedure refers to the Database.dgn file from the example database that is available at http://www.bentley.com/MicroStationDatabaseExamples.
This design file has linkages to GIS database tables.
In this example you will display the design element linked to one of the records resulting from the SELECT statement: SELECT * FROM parcel.
In SQL, in this context, * means "all columns" or "all attributes".
Build the Select statement using the Visual SQL Query Builder.
- Turn on .
- Click Execute to create the form dialog.
- In the form dialog, click Next to step through the list of query responses until you find a particular parcel in which you are interested.
Click Locate to display the element corresponding to the displayed query result.
You are prompted to select a view in which to locate the parcel element.
Select the view in which you want the parcel element displayed.
If the parcel record selected corresponds to a parcel in an open map, the parcel element displays centered in the selected view, with its number circled and highlighted.
If the parcel record selected is not linked to a graphic element in the active DGN file, the following message is displayed: "No element linked to current row."
