Altova MapForce 2020 Professional Edition

The following JScript example shows how to use the MapForce API to automate tasks pertaining to MapForce projects. Before running the example, make sure to edit the variable strSamplePath so that it points to the MapForceExamples folder of your MapForce installation.

 

To successfully run all operations in this example below, you will need the Enterprise version of MapForce. If you have the Professional version running, comment out the lines that insert the WebService project.

var objMapForce = null;
var objWshShell = null;
var objFSO = null;
 
// !!! adapt the following path to your needs. !!!
var strSamplePath = "C:\\Users\\<username>\\Documents\\Altova\\MapForce2020\\MapForceExamples\\Tutorial\\";
