I've got problem with 4.8.8 version of ManWinGIS.
When i edit a shape file and then finish it with .StopEditingShapes. My DBF file fields type are changed. It happens to data type fields -> convert do character fields.

If someone's have the same problem please send me a solution.


... Ok I found information that MapWinGIS doesn't support date fileds type .... so i think topic it's closed

You're right. The shapefile format uses the dBaseIII format for the .dbf files and that format doesn't support date fields. Just integer, double and character.
