IGETID

IGETID

Because IGETID is designed to locate the most likely match for a partial identifier, retrieving some identifiers may require careful construction of the partial identifier to be expanded. See How IGETID Expands Identifiers for information on constructing useful searches.

Examples


IPLOT, RANDOMU(seed, 30)        
IPLOT, RANDOMU(seed, 30)        
IPLOT, RANDOMU(seed, 30)            
PRINT, IGETID('plot')        

returns a result similar to:

/TOOLS/PLOT TOOL_2/WINDOW/VIEW_1/VISUALIZATION LAYER/DATA SPACE/PLOT        
 
PRINT, IGETID('data space/*')        

returns:

/TOOLS/PLOT TOOL_2/WINDOW/VIEW_1/VISUALIZATION LAYER/DATA SPACE/PLOT        
/TOOLS/PLOT TOOL_2/WINDOW/VIEW_1/VISUALIZATION LAYER/DATA SPACE/PLOT/SYMBOL        
/TOOLS/PLOT TOOL_2/WINDOW/VIEW_1/VISUALIZATION LAYER/DATA SPACE/AXES        
/TOOLS/PLOT TOOL_2/WINDOW/VIEW_1/VISUALIZATION LAYER/DATA SPACE/AXES/AXIS0        
/TOOLS/PLOT TOOL_2/WINDOW/VIEW_1/VISUALIZATION LAYER/DATA SPACE/AXES/AXIS1        
/TOOLS/PLOT TOOL_2/WINDOW/VIEW_1/VISUALIZATION LAYER/DATA SPACE/AXES/AXIS2        
/TOOLS/PLOT TOOL_2/WINDOW/VIEW_1/VISUALIZATION LAYER/DATA SPACE/AXES/AXIS3        
 
PRINT, IGETID(TOOL='plot*1')        

returns:

/TOOLS/PLOT TOOL_1        
 
PRINT, IGETID('plot', TOOL='plot*')        

returns:

/TOOLS/PLOT TOOL/WINDOW/VIEW_1/VISUALIZATION LAYER/DATA SPACE/PLOT        
/TOOLS/PLOT TOOL_1/WINDOW/VIEW_1/VISUALIZATION LAYER/DATA SPACE/PLOT        
/TOOLS/PLOT TOOL_2/WINDOW/VIEW_1/VISUALIZATION LAYER/DATA SPACE/PLOT

Syntax


Result = IGETID ([Id] [, TOOL=value]

Return Value


Returns a full iTools identifier, an array of iTool identifiers, or an empty string if no matching iTools object is found.

Arguments


Id

A scalar string containing the partial identifier to be expanded.

Keywords


TOOL

By default, IGETID searches only in the current iTool. Set this keyword equal to a scalar string that contains a partial identifier specifying the iTool or iTools in which to search for matches for Id. When the TOOL keyword is set, IGETID searches all of the currently instantiated iTools for tools whose full identifiers match the value of the TOOL keyword before searching for Id.

Set this keyword equal to '*' to search for Id in all of the currently-instantiated iTools.

If a value is specified for the TOOL keyword and the Id argument is not supplied, IGETID returns full identifiers for the iTools that match the specified partial identifier. For example:

PRINT, IGETID(TOOL='plot 1')        

returns

/TOOLS/PLOT TOOL_1        
 

If the * symbol is used, all tools that match the requested string are returned.

For example:

PRINT, IGETID(TOOL='plot*')        

returns

/TOOLS/PLOT TOOL        
/TOOLS/PLOT TOOL_1        
 

How IGETID Expands Identifiers


A full iTool identifier string contains the identifier strings of the component objects. A component object identifier string is known as a substring, and substrings are delineated by the / character.

You do not need to enter the exact substring of the intended visualization object. IGETID’s matching algorithm overlooks small formatting irregularities to return the match(es) that best fit the given substring.

If the * symbol is not used, the first match where each substring is contained in the full ID is returned.

Note: By default, substrings are matched inside the current iTool. To search for substrings in other iTools, use the TOOL keyword.

For example:

PRINT, IGETID('surface')        

returns

/TOOLS/SURFACE TOOL_1/WINDOW/VIEW_1/VISUALIZATION LAYER/DATA SPACE/SURFACE        
 
PRINT, IGETID('view 1/data sp')        

returns

/TOOLS/SURFACE TOOL_1/WINDOW/VIEW_1/VISUALIZATION LAYER/DATA SPACE        

 

If the * symbol is used in the last substring, return all IDs that match at that level of the hierarchy.

For example:

PRINT, IGETID('view*')        

returns

/TOOLS/PLOT TOOL/WINDOW/VIEW_1         
/TOOLS/PLOT TOOL/WINDOW/VIEW_2         
/TOOLS/PLOT TOOL/WINDOW/VIEW_3        

If the last substring is the * symbol, return all IDs contained in the last substring.

For example:

PRINT, IGETID('data space/*')        

returns

/TOOLS/SURFACE TOOL_1/WINDOW/VIEW_1/VISUALIZATION LAYER/DATA SPACE/SURFACE        
/TOOLS/SURFACE TOOL_1/WINDOW/VIEW_1/VISUALIZATION LAYER/DATA SPACE/AXES        
/TOOLS/SURFACE TOOL_1/WINDOW/VIEW_1/VISUALIZATION LAYER/DATA SPACE/AXES/AXIS0        
/TOOLS/SURFACE TOOL_1/WINDOW/VIEW_1/VISUALIZATION LAYER/DATA SPACE/AXES/AXIS1        
/TOOLS/SURFACE TOOL_1/WINDOW/VIEW_1/VISUALIZATION LAYER/DATA SPACE/AXES/AXIS2
