alist

Mapdl.alist(na1='', na2='', ninc='', lab='', **kwargs)

Lists the defined areas.

APDL Command: ALIST

Parameters
  • na1 – List areas from NA1 to NA2 (defaults to NA1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NA1 = ALL (default), NA2 and NINC are ignored and all selected areas [ASEL] are listed. If NA1 = P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining arguments are ignored (valid only in the GUI). A component name may also be substituted for NA1 (NA2 and NINC are ignored).

  • na2 – List areas from NA1 to NA2 (defaults to NA1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NA1 = ALL (default), NA2 and NINC are ignored and all selected areas [ASEL] are listed. If NA1 = P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining arguments are ignored (valid only in the GUI). A component name may also be substituted for NA1 (NA2 and NINC are ignored).

  • ninc – List areas from NA1 to NA2 (defaults to NA1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NA1 = ALL (default), NA2 and NINC are ignored and all selected areas [ASEL] are listed. If NA1 = P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining arguments are ignored (valid only in the GUI). A component name may also be substituted for NA1 (NA2 and NINC are ignored).

  • lab

    Determines what type of listing is used (one of the following):

    (blank) - Prints information about all areas in the specified range.

    HPT - Prints information about only those areas that contain hard points.

Notes

An attribute (TYPE, MAT, REAL, or ESYS) listed as a zero is unassigned; one listed as a positive value indicates that the attribute was assigned with the AATT command (and will not be reset to zero if the mesh is cleared); one listed as a negative value indicates that the attribute was assigned using the attribute pointer [TYPE, MAT, REAL, or ESYS] that was active during meshing (and will be reset to zero if the mesh is cleared). A “-1” in the “nodes” column indicates that the area has been meshed but there are no interior nodes. The area size is listed only if an ASUM command has been performed on the area.
