Spatialsearch and text

Spatialsearch and text

Spatialsearch and text

I am working with the axDrawingControl using Csharp and I noticed that spatialsearch can't find text shapes.

Spatialsearch can't find groups unless it has some geometry. I thought the same might be true for text but apparently not. There is clearly something in the text shape that is not triggering spatialsearch but I am just flailing about trying to find it.

Any suggestions?


RE: Spatialsearch and text

Figured this out. Apparently, because there is no Geometry, spatial search does not detect text objects because there is nothing to be "contained in".

I found that if I set the fill of the text objects to white or some color, spatial search can find the text objects.
