I am trying to access the geography feature property of a feature being edited. I need to do it programatically (in order to auto populate a field using the geography) using VB Script. I cannot seem to figure out what the ArcPad object is that I want to access in the script. Any suggestions?



How do I access the Points Collection of an added feature in ArcPad studio?

Dim objRS, objLayer, objShape, pointsCollection, centroid

Set objLayer = Map.SelectionLayer Set objRS = objLayer.Records

objRS.Bookmark = Map.SelectionBookmark

Set objShape = objRS.Fields.Shape

pointsCollection = objShape.Parts.Item(1)


Your question is a bit vague. Have you looked at the help as there are plenty of examples? To access features within a FeatureClass you would use the RecordSet, have a look here.
