I'm looking for the D4D equivalent of the Classic DCAL Contour_Search function. I've searched the D4D libraries for 'Contour' and 'Search' (as well as a couple of abbreviations of those words), but have not managed to find it.
Does anybody know if this function exists in D4D (and if so what it is called).

Hi David,

The Contour Search function is not currently exported to DCAL for Delphi. It will be added as a 'boudary_search' function in the next build.

boundary_search(pt1 : point; var frst, last : lgl_addr) : asint; stdcall;

Thank You,
