    Exclamation Shapes in colision

    Hi.

    is there any way to know if two shapes are in collision? or 3,4,n??

    I mean, I have two shapes on map, and the user of my applications create other zone, but someone edge pass inside an existing zone...
    i would that the user can't do it. Again the first question...

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    No. But you could calculate that in your application. Looks easy if it are regular shapes (circle, rectangle, ...). But for freeform more difficult. then you have to calculate each point for each shape to see if it is in another shape.

    Maybe dont let the user use the drawing tools ? Then you have more control, depending on what you try to acomplish of course.
