[Chameleon] Maptips and PostGIS

I get the same problem enabling MapTips with postgis layers. Could you finally fix it in a way or another?


  Hello again,

  I have done some more investigations regarding the problem of PostGIS 
  layers not recognized by the Maptips widget. It works fine with shapes 
  but not with PostGIS. Until now, I found that the getShape function:

                  $oShape = $oLayer->getShape($nTile, 0 );

  in LayerAttributes.php does not return an object if the layer is a 
  PostGIS layer. Therefore, the layer does not appear in the selection dialog.

  If I use $oLayer->getItems() to retrieve the attributes of the layers, 
  they at least appear in the "Configure MapTips", but nothing happens 
  within the map. Might this be specific to the development version of 
  Mapserver/MapScript (see below for the configuration)?

  By the way, clicking <OK> in the "Configure MapTips" executes the 
  currently active navigation function, e.g. ZoomIn or ZoomOut. Is this a 
  misconfiguration or a bug?

  Finally, my configuration:

  Windows XP Pro
  Postgres 8 nativ Windows
  PostGIS 1.0
  Apache 2.0.53
  PHP 5.0.3 (modul)
  Mapserver and Mapscript 4.5 (development version from MapTools.org).
