CSV file from GetAllArray Method


I have the following code that I want to output in CSV format.  I am struggling with the correct formatting.

A small sample output of the program is this:-


The coordinate of Node 325 is (16, 10, 0).
The coordinate of Node 215 is (16, 14, 0).
Load ID 48, Propety ID 7, Elem Type 6, Nodes 325, Nodes 215


I can produce a CSV file but can not populate it correctly. I am trying to setup a table that has a seperate column for each output above and loops through until no more data is left to display in a table.  


Column 1 is Load ID

Column 2 Property ID

Column 3 Elem Type

Column 4 Node A

Column 5 Node B

Column 6 Coordinates A

Column 7 Coordinates B


My attempt was integrating Counts in a while loop

e.g. C0 = entID , C1 = propID, C2=elemType etc all representing columns.

Then using .Addcolumn, example:


The HTML Clipboard

data.AddColumn( False, False, FT_ELEM, 0, "Load ID",FCT_DOUBLE, numElem, C0, C1, newID )
data.AddColumn( False, False, FT_ELEM, 0, "Property ID", FCT_DOUBLE, numElem, C0, C2, newID )
data.AddColumn( False, False, FT_ELEM, 0, "Element Type", FCT_DOUBLE, numElem, C0, C3, newID )


Any help or tips for a better approach would be appreciated.

Re: CSV file from GetAllArray Method


Hello oSam,


If you would like to create a CSV file, you can make it using WinWrap Basic language (from FEMAP API Programming Pane):

Sub Main
    Dim App As femap.model
    Set App = feFemap()

    Dim nodeID As Long
    Dim xcoordinate As String
    Dim ycoordinate As String
    Dim zcoordinate As String


    Open "D:\Test_API.csv" For Output As #1
    'The following line write text "The coordinate of Node; 325;is (;16;,;10;,;0;)"
    Print #1, "The coordinate of Node;"+Str(nodeID)+";is (;"+xcoordinate+";,;"+ycoordinate+";,;"+zcoordinate+";)"
    'The following line write text "325;16;10;0"
    Print #1, Trim(Str(nodeID))+";"+xcoordinate+";"+ycoordinate+";"+zcoordinate
    Close #1

End Sub


If you use Visual Studio, you can use StreamWriter object:


objWriter = New System.IO.StreamWriter("D:\Test_API.csv")
objWriter.WriteLine("Text to CSV file")

Re: CSV file from GetAllArray Method


Hello Peter, I appreciate your response but the API I am trying to construct would go through all the produced outputs and sort them into a table in a CSV file. I have created csv files with no trouble before but can not seem to get it to populate correctly this time. I am trying to aim for an automatic population of the data tables as mentioned in my original post.
