Does anyone know if it is possible to include a wildcard value in a renderer?

I want to create a renderer based on two fields where features with one value display with certain symbology (e.g. no fill but a border color based on a second field), and everything else displays using a different symbology (e.g. a solid fill color based on the second field).

I'm using AppStudio but I assume the concept should run across all the sdk's...?

Cheers,

-Paul

I guess I read over this too fast and missed the two fields part of this. You are right, you can only specify the one default symbol. Otherwise, it is up to the developer to define all of the possible different unique value combinations.

Hey Paul-

Set the default label and default symbol. Everything will get labeled/symbolized like that symbol unless they match one of your class breaks or unique values, in which case they will use whatever you assigned it.

Thanks,

Luke

Thanks Luke - as I understand it though, the default obviously only allows one symbology. What I want is:

Field1 = A and Field2 = B then blue.Field1 = A and Field2 = C then red.

Field1 = anything other than A and Field2 = B then green.

Field1 = anything other than A and Field2 = C then pink.

etc...

The key would be the ability to put a wildcard * or % reference or not equals != in. But it seems like the renderer only does a 'equals' comparison, not any other search expression. I can't find any indication anywhere that this can be done so am assuming it can't...?
