ndinqr#

Mapdl.ndinqr(node, key, pname='__tmpvar__', **kwargs)#

Get information about a node.

Secondary Functions: Set current node pointer to this node.

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
nodeint

node number. It should be 0 for key=11, DB_NUMDEFINED, DB_NUMSELECTED, DB_MAXDEFINED, and DB_MAXRECLENG.

pnamestr

Name of the variable where the queried value is stored.

**kwargs

Extra arguments to be passed to Mapdl.run.

Returns
str, int, or float

The returned value of ndinqr is based on setting of key.
