Dear all,

We would like to have your feedbacks on our proposition to add new
selection functionnalities in the Digitizing Tool Bar.

These functions come from the 'SELECTPLUSFR' extensions, developed by
MASSE (french Ministry of Ecology) and available here :


 Originally 'SELECTPLUS' is a collection of tools for selecting objects on
vectors historically developed by Barry Rowlingson and supplemented by
Carson JQ Farmer.

SELECTPLUSFR includes a “Create Drawn Objects” tool that allows user to
create circles or rectangles.
Our proposal is to add the “Create Drawn Objects” tool into the
“digitizing” tool bar.

The procedure is as follows :


   *Click* button to initialize the command ;

   *Click in the map window* to place the center of the circle and get the
   box set the properties of the circle (object proposed default).

The it is possible to :


   change the type object ;

   previewing dynamic drawing of the object ;

   move the object by changing the X and Y coordinates (or scroll button) ;

   change the attributes of the object : a circle radius or width and
   height for a rectangle (or scroll button) ;

   change the label associated with the object ;

   change associated with the object position (*only for rectangles*) ;

   switch to the current way (map window) or general control ;

   recall the X and Y coordinates of the last point raised in the map
   window ;

   change the selection option on the layer to achieve (interaction with
   toolbar) ;

   make a selection with the object (no need to create it) ;

   create object (memory layer).

If this proposal gets your attention and interest, we could be able to work
on it for the version after 2.4.

All feedbacks welcome !

Thanks !
