I'm trying to develop a small program using MapBasic for MapInfo. I want to get access to the standard "Modify table structure" (or "Image registration" for raster tables) dialog through "Layer Control" menu using right click on the layer. It may be very helpful especially when you've got a lot of open layers and tables in MapInfo.
Standard way is a little bit challenging:
- You need to Remember the name of your layer
- then you go to "Table" -> "Maintenance" -> "Table structure..." -> Find your table in the popup menu ->
- Begin to modify it.
The same thing with the raster registration: you always must to find your table in the popup menu before you can modify it.
I want to skip this popup menu. You just right click on the layer, choose "Modify table/Raster Registration" option and go straight to the "Modify table structure" dialog. The issue is that I cannot figure out how to get access to these standard MapINfo dialogs. I have found them in "mires .dll" using "resourse hacker", but I still cannot skip the popup menu.
Is it possible?
