Declaration:procedure ReplaceTown (DBEntry: longint; Name: TgdbName; Date: TDateTime; StateFlag: longint; Location: TSCoords; Altitude: single; ClassNumber: byte; UserTag: longint);

The method ReplaceTown replaces the database entry specified by DBEntry by town data. The parameter Name contains the name of the town. The parameter Date holds the date and time associated with the town. The parameter StateFlag reflects the state of the database entry. The position of the town is defined by the parameter Location. The parameter Altitude defines the (average) altitude of the town. ClassNumber contains the number of the class the new database entry should belong to, and the UserTag parameter may hold a user-defined number. UserTag is not used by the database system, it can be used to store additional information.

Hint: Please note the difference between a city and a town: while a city is large enough to be represented by an outline polygon, a town is represented by a single point.
