Put it here in case it got clipped...I have a calc that takes 2 fields and concatenates them together in a new field to use for symbology. Then I was told that the fields used are dynamic. Therefore I need the ability where if a person changes a field used in the concatenation it automatically changes the calced, combined field with the new info. I have access to ArcGIS 10.5 thru 10.7 products...the DB is currently 10.2.2 but we will upgrade that soon. Any ideas? I know this may not be the perfect publish location but I don't know where else to post it
I'm not seeing much action on this. Do I have it in the right area? If not can somebody recommend where it should go?
First off: how or when is this calculation being performed? You seem to imply your third field needs to be dynamic as the other fields apparently are. This might be a case for Introduction to attribute rules—Geodatabases | Documentation but without a little more insight, that may or may not be the route to take.
Multiple things come to mind:
Have you already tried something and observed any issues?
On a side note: The question in the thread, need not be the entire question in itself. It should a small synopsis probably to give an idea. A lot of people ignore questions\threads, which are not formatted properly.
Well it is not a view and we are dealing with daily change on 81,354 features. Because the symbology is built using Z whatever change is done in X & Y have to be reflected in Z. I haven't used triggers in a long time maybe that is what we need. I can explore that.
Ok about your side note...but how am I going to really give info enough to make sure people have what they need to answer? I guess they can just ask questions. I just wanted to minimize the back and forth as we all are busy.
After thinking about it...I haven't used triggers in a while. But I have a couple questions:
- I assume you are referring to a database trigger or are you thinking something within ArcCatalog or ArcMap?
- Could you provide an example of a trigger?
Thanks for everything!
Thanks for the replies to Joe and Asrujit!
As Asrujit SenGupta suggests: try to keep your thread titles to a minimum. Yes, we are all busy, but for me, I'd rather get a teaser of a title and open the thread than get bored reading a lengthy one and move on before finishing it...
I just put another thread out for a coding issue. I will try from here on to be better about this 🙂
my suggestion for that title would be:
Python: Need help converting Tifs into a Mosaic or
Need help converting Tifs into a Mosaic with Python
and then fill us in with the details in the body of the thread.
Also, personally I never open a .zip file from anyone I don't know, no offense, just business. If you want to post code, use the syntax highlighter described here: https://community.esri.com/message/903148-re-arcmap-105-python-script-error?commentID=903148#comment...
