Hi Bram,

I've tested what you told me but it still not work. I have no error, but my
dbf and my shp are not created. I post my new code, so could you tell me if
I do (again ^^) something wrong ?

Thank you


My code :

//création du dbf
IntPtr ptrDBFCreate =

//création du shapefile
IntPtr ptrSHPCreate = shpFile.SHPCreate(@"\SD-MMCard\TestParcelle\test.shp",

//nouvelle colonne dans le dbf
shpFile.DBFAddField(ptrDBFCreate, @"\SD-MMCard\TestParcelle\test.dbf",
ShapeFile.ShapeFile.DBFFieldType.FTString, 255, 0);

//écriture de la valeur liée au futur shape
shpFile.DBFGetRecordCount(ptrDBFCreate), 0, "to");

//création du point
double[] x = new double[1];
double[] y = new double[1];
double[] z = new double[1];
x[0] = 803606;
y[0] = 803606;
z[0] = 0;

IntPtr psObject =
shpFile.SHPCreateSimpleObject(ShapeFile.ShapeFile.ShapeType.Point, 1, x, y,

//écriture du point dans le shape
shpFile.SHPWriteObject(ptrSHPCreate, -1, psObject);

//fermeture du dbf et du shapefile
