Hi  Vassilis,

I tried what you told me too, but it still not work. No error, but no
files... It's hopeless !! ^^
I think there is something wrong against me with this library !!!

Thank you for your reply !


My code : 

//création du dbf
IntPtr ptrDBFCreate = shpFile.DBFCreate(@"\SD-MMCard\TestParcelle\test");

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

//nouvelle colonne dans le dbf
shpFile.DBFAddField(ptrDBFCreate, @"\SD-MMCard\TestParcelle\test",
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
