My initial mapserver app. was using 3.5 and the layer description below
worked fine. It uses a customized font with the roation angle derived from
an attribute in the shape file. However, when I maigrated all to the most
recetn mapserver *4.0 I think) a couple of things went wrong.
1. the colour was grey until user zoomed in very close.
2. the LABELANGLEITEM hung the application.
Question - my goal is to use a cutomized font that I'm able to rotate and
have an outline and a fill colour. Has there been any chnages to the way
mapserver 4.0 handles this issue?
===From Map File====
TEXT "A" # the text is actually the keyboard character that corresponds
to the symbol in the font
EXPRESSION ('[Name]' eq 'SeaTide' AND [Posid] eq 1)
OUTLINECOLOR 0 0 0
COLOR 0 240 0
DUMP TRUE # allow GML export
