I will be working my VMap problem within the next couple of weeks. Don told
me which 4.6.3 packages (i.e., com.bbn.openmap.omGraphics package and the
com.bbn.openmap.layer.vpf package) I would need because I didn't want to do
a full update.

Hi Don (and Darol)

Some time ago you gave me support with a java file of the
FeatureDrawingAttributes class trying to solve a bug in the OpenMap software
4.6.2 that cause problems in the management of VMAP layers attributes (crv,
nam, F_code description, etc..). I know that you got in contact with my
developer. bug was solved thanks to yuor support but some other problem need
to be overtaken (no error shown running the software but no layer labels
Moreover, I remember that Darol was affected by the same problem and I'd
like to know if he solved his troubles or not (and how if yes).
Two last question: I've understood that OpenMap 4.6.3 should definitely
solve this trouble. Is there an extimation of this software availability? Is
there any further chance to work on the code to reach my goal before the
4.6.3 is available?
Thanks very much
