PyFlux: Get application type

Recommended Posts


I'm back with questions regarding Python/PyFlux. I'm trying to determine the current application in a script. I have two questions:

1. In my tests, I found out that my current application is always Application[2]. Why is there no Application[0], and why is Application[1] the pre-processor?

2. When I type "Application[2]" in the PyFlux command line, I get "ApplicationMagneticTransient3D[2]", which would be good for me to determine the application. Yet, when I assign it to a variable "myVar = Application[2]", a print of that variable returns "2". I can't seem to get the information I want. There must be a python mechanism that I don't understand, and it might be useful for several other tasks in Flux.


Thank you very much in advance!

The Application[1] is always the preprocessor. Application[2] is for the physical application.

I propose you to use a specific command (which is valid for all Flux entities):


print A

It should display something like this for transient application:






I hope it will help.
