Creating a polygon automatically from a table of points in MapInfo Professional

Products Affected: MapInfo Pro™, MapBasic®
There is no native MapInfo Professional tool that creates a polygon automatically from table of points. There is a simple MapBasic tool can be used to accomplish this.

Attached is a third party developed application called POLYFPTS.MBX that adds points from a user-chosen points table to a region object in the Cosmetic Layer.  Points are added in rowID order.

Another tool called ConnectTheDots, currently posted on, has the same basic functionality.  It allows the user to choose polygon vs. polyline and to pick styles for either.  It places the new object into the source table of points instead of the Cosmetic Layer.
