Applying style on attribute value

Hi Mike
Is there a possibility to apply style on attribute value but with providing a joker in the value.

Ex atrribute value AAAAAA.123
All values starts by AAAAAA followed by an Idnumber.
I'd like to set a style to all AAAAAA.
It could be something like AAAAAA%

It would be much easier than selecting with search all AAAAAA and changing layer.

Thanks
Iaorana

    If you are using the Search->Search by Attribute menu command, just use the * wildcard in your search string, like 'AAAAA*' to match the desired values, then edit them.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    It's not what I was looking at.
    I would rather keep the value as it is as the id is important and use in the overlay control center >>options >> areas, points, lines style >>apply stlyles by attribute value with an *
    Would it be difficult to implement?

    That was not difficult at all to implement. I have now updated the attribute values to allow wildcard (* and ?) characters. I have placed a new build at http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper11.zip with the change for you to try. Simply download that file and extract the contents into your existing v11.xx installation folder to give it a try. If you are using the 64-bit version, there is a new build available at http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper11_64bit.zip .

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,
