[Mapguide-users] CGI QueryMapFeatures

Hi Scott,

I did a quick check on the QueryMapFeatures OPERATION.  It is intended
to work with visible layers only.  Any layers not visible at the current
scale range will be excluded.

You may want to look at SELECTFEATURES instead.  It requires more in
depth knowledge of the layers and their data sources but does not depend
on view state because it goes directly against the feature source.

Is there any documentation on the FCGI OPERATIONS and params Yet?
Since the WebAPI is so wrapped around it it would be nice to no what
parameters are available...
When I goto http://localhost/mapguide/mapagent/index.html
"OPERATION=QueryMapFeatures" isn't even an option...and I'm assuming
even this site doesn't give all the options of FCGI params either.

I can't find documentation on the FCGI operation QueryMapFeatures When I
change the ViewerAPi Code where it filters by the selectable and visible
layers " LAYERNAMES=" + encodeURIComponent(GetVisSelLayers())"
To a list of Non-visible layers it doesn't work....
....I want users to be able to select features using the geometry on
layers that are not visible as well for parsing purposes? Can I use this
Operation for that
