comment Opening a featureclass not being the owner of the data in SDE
OK - glad I talked it out with you. Agreed - it makes sense what you say. :)

comment Opening a featureclass not being the owner of the data in SDE
Well, I debugged the code where I get to the line as quoted in the question, and it shows "VIEWER.STREETS" as the featureclass its trying to open (in the exception, even though I am only passing in the source name of the featureclass without the schema owner details i.e. "STREETS"). The exception says "VIEWER.STREETS" does not exist, and that's kind of right as it's technically "EDITOR.STREETS", as "EDITOR is the data owner. In the test, I am connected to the workspace using an account - "VIEWER" with rights/permissions to view EDITOR data.

But you can't have everyone accessing the database with schema owner credentials or sde connection with those credentials.

comment Display 3 maps equally
Thanks chaps - It would appear that is all to do with the css/margins gutters etc and the claro css or whatever theme you choose. Thanks for your help guys.

I will also look at trying to create a Mosaic dataset in my python script, as you suggest.

Thanks for your reply - I have updated my post with the error message I get when using the ImageParameters/getResultImageLayer code. Any ideas?

comment ESRI ArcMap Add-in Config.esriaddinx
How do you deploy the xml file to the Environment.SpecialFolder.ApplicationData folder when you distribute the addin file to your users? Is it a case of manually copy/pasting the file?

comment How to Verify if a FeatureLayer already exists?
Just reading this - I take it the extra data you save, gets stored in the MXD not the actual featureclass i.e. one stored in ArcSDE?

Yep - they work for me now - and then once it didn't. God knows!

Yep, tried both, same result.

comment ListFeatureClasses brings back more than expected
Doesn't work, tried with just an "*" and "Point", it still brings back all point featureclasses and all grids.

comment Quick way to make a convex hull
@whuber - yeh, those are really good ideas - I think the only drawback on this methodology are the actual spatial and attribute selection functions - they take an absolute age!, and I have put a spatial index on the point featureclasses! However this may be due to fact SDE is running on a crappy desktop box, I am now in the middle of transferring the data onto a proper server with the appropriate SDE tuning for vector data. I will feed back when I get a result. PS - I think it may be worth writing this up as an answer then I can award you the points etc.

comment Quick way to make a convex hull
@whuber - I have put your idea into Python code now and it seems to have worked excellently for a feature class of 11 million points - it cut down the processing to 750K points and the convex hull was perfect. Now doing a 16 million one, but alas no luck yet - I have applied a new spatial index in the hope it will speed things up.

@Hornbydd - I didn't actually know that, but thanks, I will look into that.

@whuber - yep totally agree with your thoughts. Just trying to work out whether your original idea would work...there's definitely something it it :)

comment Quick way to make a convex hull
@whuber - the performance issue is: looping through ALL the points in the search cursor to put them into an array in order to make a multipoint out of them - that takes a crazy amount of time!

No - using Oracle. That's an option, to use the database side - but I'm just working through Python at the moment.
