Field quantities

The QfQuantity enumeration lists all local and integral physical quantities that QuickField can calculate.
These constants are used by the ColorMap property of the FieldPicture object, Curve property of PlotPicture, TimePlotPicture and TimePlotPoint objects, by several methods and properties of the Columns object and some others.

The correspondence between the QfQuantity enumeration constants and physical quantities calculated by QuickField is given by the following tables:
