Hi all,

I develop a Win-App and the last step is to import the Shapefile
(exmple.shp) into an existing MySQL Database. At this moment i
use following C#-code and it works fine:

string appPath = @"C:\Program Files\FWTools2.2.1\bin\ogr2ogr.exe";
string appArgs = " -f MySQL MySQL:myDB,user=root,password=xxx D:\\ex.shp
-nln ex -update -append -nlt GEOMETRY";

Process ogrProcess = new Process();
ogrProcess.StartInfo.FileName = appPath;
ogrProcess.StartInfo.Arguments = appArgs;

ogrProcess.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false;
ogrProcess.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = true;
ogrProcess.StartInfo.RedirectStandardOutput = true;


string Result = ogrProcess.StandardOutput.ReadToEnd();

But I think this is not a fancywork. Now I see in the
FW-Tools Software *.dll's for developing with VS-C#.
But i don't now how I can use this. The existing
examples don't help me and Master Google say nothing about
c# and FW-Tools...

Has somebody an example for realizing this? Or a Link to
an existing examples?


King Regards...
