i :=

Get the structural element ID number. This is not to be confused with the component-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 ID number
Arguments:p - a pointer to a structural link
