LocalFieldQuantities Property

Applies to


Returns the collection of admissible local field quantities.


Result.LocalFieldQuantities (
  [p As Point]
) As FieldQuantities


[in] Point


LocalFieldQuantities property represents the collection of FieldQuantity objects where every object describes one of physical quantities QuickField can compute analyzing the problem results.

The collection represented by this property contains only local physical quantities. This means that the values of quantities in this collection define the field at the point used as the property argument.

When you access the LocalFieldQuantities property without arguments, it represents the collection of all local quantities related to the resultís problem type. When you access the LocalFieldQuantities property with a point argument, the collection contains only the quantities that QuickField can compute at the point used as the argument.

Note, that no member of LocalFieldQuantities collection represents a fixed value. You could rather see it as a set of parameters QuickField uses to compute the value of a local quantity at the specified point. To access the quantity values calculated for a member of LocalFieldQuantities collection, invoke this memberís Calculate method with appropriate arguments.

You can find the Visual Basic example demonstrating how to use LocalFieldQuantities in the article on FieldQuantities Object.
