Hi there,

I have similar question (so I decided not open a new thread just for this).

Is it possible to get a list of all cells who contain a given point? As I understand, "mesh.findCell(position);" will give me the cell whose centre is nearest to "position"; in my case, "position" will be coordinates of cells nodes, so I need to get all the cells that 'contain' that point...
