MapScript Objects

For a complete MapScript object, variable, and method guide see the latest on the MapServer documentation web site page or Sean Gillies’ reference guide (http://zcologia.com/mapserver).

Class diagrams are also available from these web sites:

Classes within the map file can be accessed as objects in MapScript. In fact, there are more objects to handle than you normally see, because MapServer does a lot of the work with them behind the scenes. The main part of a MapScript application is the map object (mapObj ). The mapObj can have many layer objects (layerObj ) as well as legend (legendObj ), scale bar (scalebarObj ), and reference map (referenceMapObj) objects. Figure 14-1 shows a diagram of how these objects are hierarchically structured.
