Create Polygon Topology - Select Links dialog box
 
 
 
NoteThis functionality applies only to drawing objects.

Every area forms a polygon; and each polygon in a polygon topology consists of a set of links. When you create polygon topology, use this dialog box to select the links to include in the topology.

To create a polygon topology

Click Create tabTopology panelNew. At the Command prompt, enter maptopocreate.

You can select all links in the map or select them manually. You can also filter (restrict) link selection to a subset of links, in which you include only the links that are on specified layers and in specified object classes.

Link information is stored as object data and saved with the map. Each link is given a unique ID number, which is automatically processed whenever you use a topology command.

Select All

Include all links that meet the filter criteria.

Select Manually

Include only the links that you manually select in the map. Click the Select Objects to select the links. Only links that meet the filter criteria will be selected.

Layers

Specify the layers to use to filter (restrict) link selection to a subset of links, in which you include only the links that are on the specified layers. This filter is used for both automatic and manual selection of objects. To select from a list of layers in the map, click Select Layers. To use all layers, enter an asterisk (*) or leave the box blank.

Object Classes

Specify the object classes to use to filter (restrict) link selection to a subset of links, in which you include only the links that are in the specified object classes. To select from a list of object classes in the map, click Select Object Classes. To use all object classes, enter an asterisk (*) or leave the box blank.
