Extents objects store information about other objects extents properties. Objects in MapWinGIS such as the Map, Shape, and Shapefile all have extents as a property. The extents properties tell us where in the map an object lies, what area is included in the entire map, or where on the map the current map view is located. Extents can be used to set the zoom to include only a certain region specified by extents.
The functions and properties are listed below. Clicking on each will yield a description of the function and its arguments as well as sample code where applicable.
