Item Number (Scilab gateway)

How to get the number of items in a list (list, mlist, tlist).

Calling Sequence

SciErr getListItemNumber(void* _pvCtx, int* _piAddress, int* _piNbItem)

Arguments

_pvCtx

Scilab environment pointer, pass in "pvApiCtx" provided by api_scilab.h.

_piAddress

Address of the list.

_piNbItem

Return the number of items.

SciErr

Error structure where is stored errors messages history and first error number.

Description

This help describes how to get the number of items in a list (list, mlist, tlist).
