Geographic Information Systems Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for cartographers, geographers and GIS professionals. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I need to create an identify tool that will return text attributes arranged in a graphical form. The scenario is there are text attributes for signs and they need to be displayed just like they would on the sign that is identified (like a graphic). This would also need to be used in ArcExplorer for those in my department without ArcMap.

Thanks!!

Isn't this the same question as gis.stackexchange.com/questions/8638/identify-features? –  whuber Dec 20 '11 at 18:42
    
-1. I don't see what kind of answer you're expecting, your question doesn't state the actual problem. –  stakx Feb 19 '12 at 20:19

Is there a particular reason you want to create your own identify tool, or would it work to just:

to your database?

The goal is to create a popup that displays attribute data in a certain layout. After more research, it looks like I may be able to solve the problem using an HTML popup. –  Matt Dec 21 '11 at 13:47

Yup, solved it using an HTML popup that linked to a PDF. The scenario was I needed to link official printed data to a map and linking to a scanned PDF worked perfectly. –  Matt Feb 21 '12 at 15:54
    
@Matt, could you please "Answer" your own question with some added details about your solution and check it as the "Accpeted" answer so others can learn from your work? –  RyanDalton Feb 21 '12 at 16:58

This issue was resolved by using an HTMl link for each feature on the map (in this case, points for intersections). PDF were liked via the HTML popup feature in ArcMap 10 which provided the original information for each feature, reducing the probability of data entry error.
