Append the entity IDs from the named table to the specified mark.


hm_tabletomark table_name mark_id ?panel_sensitive?


HyperMesh Tcl Query Command


This command appends the entity IDs stored in table_name to mark mark_id. Valid mark_ids are 1 and 2.

The ?panel_sensitive? option can be used when multiple panel levels have been pushed, either using the shortcut function keys, or the hm_pushpanel command. This option determines whether to use the current panel or the previous panel for the operation. This option is relevant only when the mark has been created from a panel entity selector under the above conditions. Valid panel_sensitive options are:

0 - Use the previous panel (default).

1 - Use the current panel.

Tables are not stored within a HyperMesh database (.hm file). When the current model is deleted or a new model is loaded, all tables are cleared.

If a table contains an entity that is subsequently deleted, the entity is removed from the table. Renumbering does not modify the entity IDs stored in the table.


To put the elements from table elem_table on element mark 1:
hm_tabletomark elem_table 1


Incorrect usage results in a Tcl error. To detect errors, you can use the catch command:
if { [ catch {command_name...} ] } {
   # Handle error
If table_name does not exist, you will get the following error:
hm_marktotable: the table <table_name> was not found.
If mark_id is invalid, you will get the following error:
hm_marktotable: invalid mark mask <mark_id> specified, must be either 1 or 2.
If mark_id is empty, and ?force? is not specified or is specified as 0:
hm_marktotable: no entities were found on the mark.
