Hi Support,

I am using ArcGIS Desktop 9.3.1 for my Utility Project. I have busbar Featureclass (ComplexJunction) which is also participated in Geometric network. I have designed Standard builder diagram type using SCH Designer. since Busbar has subtype Main Bus and Dropper. Multiple droppers are connected to Main Bus. When I am selecting only Busbar(including mainbus and dropper) and trying to generate Schematic Diagam using ArcGIS Desktop- ArcEditor. its displays Main bus in steps and diffrent elements in schematic diagram eventhough in actual its only entity and has vertices for dropper Orginating point where Dropper can start. I would like to know How to avoid steps and bring Mainbus in One element in my schematic diagrams. Since It gives me wrong representaion. Please refer Image1 and Image2 snapshot.

Image1 : geographic feature where 1 Main bus and 4 Dropper has been selected.
Image2: Schematic diagram. in that Main Bus displayed in steps which is wrong in dark brown colour. and Dropper have been shown in Brown color where other elements are connected.

How Main bus can come as 1 entity and not in steps. So that it can give correct representaion.

It looks like all the features are in the diagram correctly, it is just a problem of display.  The manual answer to the display is to use the 'Main Line' algorithm, pick the start point and stop point and then apply it. To automatically do it, you would need to build an algo that somehow automatically knows how to determine what is the start and stop points and then apply the algo without the user manually doing it.

Hi,

Thanks a lot for the information. I will check using Main line. One query is there any provision where I can start point and stop point programtically. Since I havent got this option usign designer.
