Topology Query Result dialog box
 
 
 
NoteThis functionality applies only to drawing objects.

Use this dialog box to specify the type of topology to create with the queried objects. If you create a temporary or permanent topology, specify a name and description for the topology.

To query a topology

Click Create tabTopology panelDefine Query. At the Command prompt, enter maptopoquery.

Topology names can contain letters, numbers, and the underscore and hyphen characters. For temporary topologies, the name must begin with an asterisk (*).

None

Objects are retrieved into the current drawing, but no topology data is created.

Temporary

Objects are retrieved into the current drawing, and the topology data is loaded into memory. This data is not saved to the objects.

You can use a temporary topology with the following commands: Buffer, Dissolve, Overlay, Trace, Unload, Rename, Statistics, and Delete. You cannot edit a temporary topology.

As soon as you close the current drawing, the temporary topology is removed from memory.

Click Map Setup tabTopology panelRename. At the Command prompt, enter maptoporen.Specify a name without an asterisk.

Permanent

Objects are retrieved into the current drawing, and a new topology is created.
