polyQueryBlindData([associationType=string], [binaryData=string], [booleanData=boolean], [doubleData=float], [intData=int], [longDataName=string], [maxValue=float], [minValue=float], [shortDataName=string], [showComp=boolean], [stringData=string], [subString=string], [typeId=int])

Note: Strings representing object names and arguments must be separated by commas. This is not depicted in the synopsis.

polyQueryBlindData is NOT undoable, NOT queryable, and NOT editable.

Command query's blindData associated with particular polygonal components. So, the command will require the following to be specified: - selection list to query Optional are the: - typeId - associationType - longDataName or shortDataName of data being queried. - The actual data being specified. - showComponent flag Note that for object level blind data, the showComponent flag will be ignored. If no components are selected, the assocation flag will be ignored and object level data will be queried.

Return value

stringBlind data


query, blind, data


blindDataType, polyBlindData


associationType, binaryData, booleanData, doubleData, intData, longDataName, maxValue, minValue, shortDataName, showComp, stringData, subString, typeId
Long name (short name) Argument types Properties
typeId(id) int create
Specifies the typeId of the BlindData type being queried. If the typeId is not specified, then all of the components that match the query will be output. The typeId of the elements found will be output if the ShowComponents option is used. Will be in the format "object.component.attribute::typeId". If the typeId is specifed then the "::typeId" portion will not be output with the ShowComponents option.
associationType(at) string create
Specifies the dataTypes that are part of BlindData node being queried. Allowable associations are "object" for any object, and "vertex" "edge" and "face" for mesh objects.
longDataName(ldn) string createmultiuse
Specifies the long name of the data that is being queried by this command.
shortDataName(sdn) string createmultiuse
Specifies the short name of the data that is being queried by this command.
minValue(min) float create
Specifies the minimum value to search for. This option will query float, double and integer types of blind data.
maxValue(max) float create
Specifies the maximum value to search for. This option will query float, double, and integer types of blind data.
subString(ss) string create
Specifies the substring that should be checked against a STRING type blind data. If the sub string is found query is successful. Will not look at non String type blind data elements.
doubleData(dbd) float create
Specifies the double/float value to search for
intData(ind) int create
Specifies the integer value to search for
stringData(sd) string create
Specifies the string value to search for
booleanData(bd) boolean create
Specifies the string value to search for
binaryData(bnd) string create
Specifies the binary string value to search for
showComp(sc) boolean create
The showComponent option controls whether the object.[component].attribute name is output preceeding the actual value. If the showComponent option is used then the restriction of only returning 1 type of blind data (i.e. one of integer, float, double... is removed, as the return for all are strings. If the association is object and not component, then this option will still cause all the attribute names to be printed
