This toolbox displays the clicked point in degree/minute/second format. The toolbox illustrates how to:

  1. Get a coordinate from a user click on the map
  2. Get longitude and latitude in degrees, minutes, and seconds
  3. Format strings to show those values

You can modify the strings to display in other formats, and the user can copy and paste the strings when DMS versions of coordinates are needed.


  1. Download the file GISDK_Click Coord and extract the file CLICK COORD DMS.RSC. A good place to save the resource file is in the GISDK\Samples folder in the Maptitude program folder.
  2. Open or make current the map that you want to use.
  3. Choose Tools-GIS Developer's Kit-GISDK Toolbar to open the GISDK toolbar.
  4. Compile this toolbox in test mode using the Compile button (first button).
  5. Run this toolbox by clicking the Test button (second button), typing the dialog box name (DMS), clicking the Dialog Box radio button, and clicking OK.
