Mapdl.arinqr(anmi, key, pname='__tmpvar__', **kwargs)

Get information about a area.

Secondary Functions: Set current area pointer to this area.

Warning

DISCLAIMER: This function is un-documented in the official ANSYS Command Reference Guide. Hence its support is limited and it use is not encouraged. Please use it with caution.

Parameters

pnamestr

Name of the variable where the queried value is stored.

**kwargs

Extra arguments to be passed to Mapdl.run.

Returns
int or str

For key=1

  • 0 = anmi is undefined.
