Use field calculator (Python) on shape field, e.g.: arcpy.Point(1747952,5907660) If you know coordinates of this point. This is extension of original answer. Create a copy of the layer in table of content and and call it 'points'. Select correct point in 'points. Use field calculator (Python) on shape field for record with missing geometry: def ...
In QGIS, try Settings -> Options, Digitizing tab: Feature creation [x] Reuse last entered attribute values. This works for newly created objects, but not if you fill in data of already existing objects.
Don't know what will happen, I've never used ArcSDE. But you can check the state of the Editor using IEditor.EditState property and use that to stop your addin launching what ever code it was going to do?
To do that is preferable create another field with Double type and copy the string field in it. For example, in the next image, I've created the string field 'myString' (editing session) and I've put in it the value "5.78453'. You can corroborate that the type is string because is left aligned. In the below image it can be observed the creation of field ...
When you have a record but no geometry it's known as a null geometry. The quick fix while in an Edit Session is to select the record/row in question and use the Replace Geometry tool on the Advanced Editing toolbar. This will allow you to create a point to replace the null. It works on points, lines, and polygons, and can replace both null and exisiting ...
Here's a solution works with lines and polygons but not points (for that see @ChrisW's answer): the Continue Feature tool from Edit Vertices toolbar. (Doesn't help Amy, but maybe someone else later). start editing, open the feature class attribute table select a has-attribute-only record pan/zoom to correct location r-click on map, select Edit Vertices, ...
There are several ways to accomplish this depending on specific needs and available license level. First step for all methods is to create a new feature class/layer for the gap areas. Even if you want to have them on the same layer in the end, working with two layers makes things much easier for editing purposes. Next, draw a generalized polygon on this ...
Everybody thanks a lot. Finally, I did it. Was to easy (when you know how). In QGIS 2.8.1 the tool is SPLIT LINES WITH LINES (on the V. Overlay, on Geoalgorithms, from Advanced Interface). I came there thanks to Chris W advice.
Could you make use of the Quick Multi Attribute Edit plugin? You can create a number of points first, select a group of them, and bulk edit common attributes using the plugin.
For apps I've been involved with, we use secured Feature Services (with the accounts used to secure the services coming from Active Directory - these are different than the accounts used to secure the ArcSDE layers in the geodatabase), in conjunction with a Proxy application, to control access to editable layers. An alternative to the Proxy application is to ...
I've not tried this personally in this exact situation, but you should theoretically at least be able to add a new point at the correct location (leaving the attributes blank). Then go to the attribute table and select both rows (the newly created point without attributes and the corresponding attribute record without a point). Then go to the Editor ...
