Riverside County Search Tool

Discussion created by rfairhur24 on Nov 13, 2014

These two add-ins are the set of search tools I created for Riverside County. If you download the County's data and reconnect the data sources these tools can search for various items.  The map contains the minimum search tool set up requirements.  Any other layers can be added to the map without affecting the tools as long as the search layer names are not changed.  I also have included a layer file to add to your existing maps as an alternative to using the Base map; however, in addition to the layer the Base map includes layout objects that work in conjunction with the tools to display a Title and scale bar that best match the tool search results.  Finally, there is an instruction guide for using the Search for Road Segment tool Word 2007 document attached.  The Add-Ins work for ArcGIS 10.3 or above.

 

How to Install the Search Tools

 

For users of my search tools who currently see my tools in ArcMap:  If you are currently using my search tools in ArcMap and you want to update them to the latest version, you just need to refresh the Add-Ins by doing the following:

 

  1. Close ArcMap if it is open.
  2. Save the attached SearchFormsNew1.zip file to your desktop and double click it.
  3. Unzip the files and double click the SearchFormsNew1.esriAddIn file.

Updated the SearchFormsNew.esriAddIn to include a Point Address search tool and modified the Base Search Tool Map.mxd to include a Search Address Points layer to support the tool.  Added a separate layer file as an alternative way to add the search capabilities to existing maps.  Indicated the version of ArcMap supported by the Add-Ins. 12/3 - Corrected dialog behavior for APN Address Search tool.  12/4 - Created a Search for Parcel Owner tool.  12/8 - Added Installation Instructions and usage instructions for the Search for Road Segment tool.

Message was edited by: Richard Fairhurst - August 23, 2016 9:54 A.M. PST - Updated the SearchFormsNew.esriAddin Tool to handle Address searches when the Owner1 fields are Null and altered the CaseReporter button to make the local path based on the user name.  The SearchFormsNew.esriAddIn may require ArcMap 10.3 now.

PST - Updated the SearchRoadSegment.esriAddin Tool to fix bug in the Intersection Search tool that caused the Primary name to change when user selected and started typing over the Secondary Name, so that now the Secondary Name is edited as expected.

 

Message was edited by: Richard Fairhurst - January 10, 2018 11:40 AM PST - I attached a 10.5.1 version of the main search tools named SearchFormsNew1.zip.  If you have ArcMap 10.5.1 or higher installed, use the tools in the SearchFormsNew1.zip version instead of the tool in  SearchFormsNew.esriAdding.zip version.  The latest tool fixes bugs created as a result of RCIT changing the Parcel_Assessors feature class so that it stores Null values in text fields instead of "" values.

 

Message was edited by: Richard Fairhurst - January 11, 2018 08:55 AM PST - I replaced the SearchFormsNew1.zip file with a revised version that replaced the LMS Cases search with the PLUS Cases search.  The PLUS Cases search needs a layer called Search PLUS Cases that has data coming from the PLUS_ACTIVITIES feature class or a derivative subset feature class extracted from PLUS_ACTIVITIES with a field called CASE_ID.

 

Message was edited by: Richard Fairhurst - March 14, 2018 10:26 AM PST - I added the SearchRoadSegment1.zip file with a revised version that updates the Search Road Segment tool for ArcMap 10.5.

 

Message was edited by: Richard Fairhurst - July 2, 2018 11:28 AM PST - I updated the SearchFormsNew1.esriAddin.zip file with a revised version of the Search Plus Cases tool that allows case numbers to have up to 25 characters..
