I am stumped. I have a sql server database, and I have a table with valid geometry fields. I am able to define the ISqlWorkspace, and build the IQueryDescription by doing a "select * from maptable" (and I have tried specifiying manually the fields, no change. I am able to retrieve the column names and values via the SqlWorkspace.GetColumns() call. But when I try to take this queryDescription and SqlWorkspace, I am unable to cast it to a featureclass. Is there any samples or tutorials or ideas on how to make the MapControl to display a table with Sql Server 2008 R2 Spatial's geometry column in c# or vb.net? Any help would be appreciated.
