      Description

      The "Information" tool only lets you click a point. It should allow you to select a box (give me information for the feature in this box).

          about the info tool select box.
          I can't do that due to WMS spec (it is a point at something and ask "what is this")
          Already had the request to change the cursor to a "pointer" so users don't expect to be able to draw a box.

          Q: can Arc* do a info using a box?
          Note we could try tricking the wms, define a "Screen" the size of the "box" with w=1 and h=1 and ask for the pixel.

          Is it worth it to make the above hack? I kind of wanted the info toool to be a simple example (and not contain hacks).

          We will change the cursor (to be a pointer) for the info tool, and leave this issue as a wish for a new tool.

          Experiments with using a single pixel the size of the indicated box with a wms still result in a single point request (richard can tell us the server that did this).

          The info for an area tool is currently handled by selection. If we had such a tool would we be able to explain how it is different from selection?

          At the very least it is only going to work on feature information (not wms).

          Dave your call on this if you think info area is the same as selection, close and resolve this issue. If you still want it we can leave it open.

          Okay here is how to fix this one ... make a new Info tool that allows a polygon to be drawn (you can steal the distance tool code for advice on how to draw a series of points).

          Submit this to the InfoView2 as per last time; on that side of the fence:
          - create a filter out of your polygon and use it to query and feature source
          - use the bounding box of the polygon to determine how to ask WMS for info
