I read this message originally because you included msRasterLayerOpen() in
the subject line. Did you get the error message in the subject line at
What is the CLASS definition supposed to accomplish in a WMS layer?
The msRasterLayerOpen() is the open/close code I recently wrote for
raster layers so that query results could be accessed. If you are getting
that error message, it might be because WMS layers are also being treated like
raster layers for some purposes that they should not. If you can submit a
bug report for a situation where that message is issued when it should not,
perhaps you should submit a bug report on the issue so that I can fix it.
I haven't looked to close at the WMS layer code, but in general the results
of the WMS query are fetched back as a raster file which is then passed off
to the normal raster layer rendering code to overlay. If the WMS layer definition
is passed in unaltered to the raster code (I think it works this way) then of
course everything will be painted red. There is no [INWONERS] attribute as far
as the raster classification code is concerned, so the expression would
presumably always evaluate as true and everything would be set to red. If
you did a test like "[INWONERS] < 2500 and [INWONDERS] ne 0" I suspect the
class definition would be ignored by the raster code. But even then the
low level raster code would still try to "classify" the WMS result which I
doubt you really want.
