Namespace:  Telogis.GeoBase
Assembly: (in Version:
public static Polygon[] QueryPolygons(
	BoundingBox bbox,
	string tableName


Type: Telogis.GeoBaseBoundingBox
The BoundingBox representing the area to be queried.
Type: SystemString
The name of the polygon table to query.

Return Value

Type: Polygon
An array of Polygons matching the specified type.

This method matches Polygons that pass through rect and continue outside its area.
Further, Polygons with BoundingBoxes that intersect rect will also be returned by this method, thus it is possible that streets will be returned that appear to lie outside rect.

Map features are stored in tables, named according to type. Developers with custom data should avoid using the table names in the list below.
