RE: Bad Mapping Exceptions

Hi Bill,

You said to only construct ScalarMaps to DisplayRealTypes in one spatial
DisplayTupleType. I'm confused what this means since when I setup my
array of mappings passed to setMaps(), I only have 1 DisplayRealType
("mapTo") that the RealType ("mapFrom") gets mapped to. When you say not
to mix Display.XAxis with Display.Latitude, are you saying that both
XAxis and Latitude should not be a "mapTo" field in the same cell? What
do you mean by 1 spatial DisplayTupleType?

public void setCellMapping(int width, int height) throws VisADException,
RemoteException {
          int fields = theJgapAPI.field_count;            //used as arg
to getMappingForCell()
          int cell_number = (width + (4 * height));             //used
as arg to getMappingForCell()           
          ScalarMap[] theMaps = new ScalarMap[fields];   //array that
will be passed into setMaps()   
        Data[] myData = mySS.DisplayCells[width][height].getData();  
        Vector myVector = new Vector(theJgapAPI.field_count); //capacity
= 10 because there are 10 input fields in small.v5d
        int useless = DataUtility.getScalarTypes(myData, myVector,
false, true);  //will setup the myVector structure holding input fields
scalar types            
        for (int i = 0; i < fields; i++) {              
                int assignment
theJgapAPI.getMappingForCell(cell_number, i);
                DisplayRealType mapTo = mappings[assignment];
                RealType mapFrom = (RealType) myVector.get(i);

                theMaps[i] = new ScalarMap(mapFrom, mapTo);

Yes, make sure you only construct ScalarMaps to DisplayRealTypes
in one spatial DisplayTupleType. That is, for example, don't mix
Display.XAxis with Display.Latitude or DisplayCylRadius.

Good luck,
