Hi everybody,

is it possible to read into the controlDict?
I just need to know if I am using latestTime or startTime as startAt option.

Is it also possible to know if the runTime is one of those at which fields writing is performed?

Thanks in advance,

Hi, You could use
You could use runTime.startTime() in order to get the start time set in controlDict.

There is also the option to display the time name .. runTime.timeName()

Is this what you wanted?



All times are GMT -4. The time now is 04:52.
