NX11 replacements API for ufunc attribute routines

Experimenter
Experimenter

The following ufunc routines are completly removed in NX11,

 

 

uc2703

uc5091

uc5096

uc5094

uc5090

uc5126

uc5122

uc5118

uc5114

uc5105

uc5104

 

does anyone know how to get the NX programming documentation that contains the above routines, this is to see the purpose and the argument details of these API, so that I can look for the replacements in NX11?

 

I found the old NX documentation at this link:  https://support.industrysoftware.automation.siemens.com/general/nx.shtml.  However, it appears that they removed the programming documentation for releases prior to NX7.5

 

Thanks in advance

From what I gather, these deleted routines were VERY old, not necessarily replaced by new functionality in NX 11.

 

For example, I went back a dozen years to old NX 2 Open Help and found the following which documents replacement routines for some of the attribute read value routines in your list (this is all the documentation I could find on the subject):

 

Note that before the NX7.5 release, the NX Help was not posted on the GTAC site due to licensing restrictions, only the What's New Guide and Release Notes which came with the software were posted. So this material wasn't removed, it was never available

Apparently this information is still available in the NX 11 Open C Programmer's Guide:
