i :=

Get the structural element component-ID number. This is a unique value assigned internally at creation, not to be confused with the ID number.


Unlike other objects in FLAC3D, ID numbers for structural objects (elements, links, and nodes) refer to collections of elements and associated objects created together and representing a single overall structure. For structural objects, the unique internally assigned ID number associated with the object is called the component-ID number. See the function.

Returns:i - the structural element component-ID number
Arguments:p - a pointer to a structural link
