Now I am working to simplify how we manage rates and would like to give our pricing team a tool that would allow them to:
- Create Zones graphically and save them to a 'zone' table with the zone coordinates being saved to a geometry column in an SQL Server 2017 table.
- View Zones graphically and while selecting two zones (via CTRL-Click) have a panel appear where they can specify the vehicle type and the base rate and have that data save into a zone-to-zone pricing table where it would reference the keys in the 'zone' table.
- Ideally the user would have the ability to pull up zone graphically, manually edit the zone with a drawing tool and then save them back to the zone table where the geometry column would be updated.
Can anyone suggest how this might be done in PowerBuilder? A long time ago it would start with including a Microsoft Internet Object that was instantiated. As time went by there were fewer and fewer ways to support this without modifying the registry settings (e.g., IE11).
Ideally, the PowerBuilder application would incorporate a supported off-the-shelf tool that has KML editing built-in. I have searched 'powerbuilder' and 'kml' and have not been able to find anything in the community or via Google where someone has already done this.
I would appreciate it if anyone can comment with respect to the possibility of incorporating existing KML tools into a PowerBuilder project and referencing the objects or if there is a way to natively include Google Earth into the project. While I would love for this to work in Appeon, I would be happy to have it work in a standalone PowerBuilder 2017 application.
Thanks in advance your time in reviewing this and pointing me in the right direction.
