Calling Sequence GetParameterType(paramname) GetParameterType(paramname, opts)

Parameters

 paramname - string; name of a parameter in an open NX part opts - option of the form part=filename

Description

 • The GetParameterType command determines the type of the specified parameter in an open NX part. If no part= option is given, then the parameter is taken to be in the current work part.
 • The type is returned in the form of a Maple string describing the NX type of the parameter. Note that this is not a Maple type, but rather the name of the NX type.

Examples

 > $\mathrm{with}\left(\mathrm{CAD}[\mathrm{NX}]\right):$
 > $\mathrm{OpenConnection}\left(\right):$

This example assumes that a part containing the displayed parameters is already open in NX.
