Adjusting a group of (stacked) TEXTs to avoid overlapping

    Hi all,

    I have a task of bringing the xdata coded in the blocks and lines as texts, stacked one above the other for attribute checking plotting purpose.

    I can bring up the coded value as texts stacked upon one other programatically, something like below:

    2"
    CastIron
    259' long
    Active
    /
    /
    Feature _______/

    My question is, my features (blocks, lines) are too near, so that the texts popping up from different features overlap upon each other and mess up.

    In Arc/INFO software, after label generation, we use a command (adjustlabels) that can adjust the label placements locations so that they do not overlap with each other, as well as with other features.

    Any one tried with such efforts?
    Could any one help me in this matter?

    Thanks for any help offered.

    Dean,
    Me thinks you didn't read the fine print on the site that came from
    (dotsoft.com):
    Feel free to use the functions here in any way you please, with these
    exceptions.

    1.. You may not include any of this code in your own works for others.
    2.. You may not modify this code and offer derivatives.
    3.. You may not post them online (including web sites, ftp sites,
    bulletin boards, and other online services) for public downloading.
    Jeff
