Hey Foamers,

i would like to add some information to my particles.
Therefore I added a member "List<scalar> myList" to myparticle class.
So each instance/particle will have that list.
I would like to write out that data so i tried to add that to the mypartticleClassIO.C file.
When I compile I get an error message and im am stuck right now..
/// in myParticlesClassIO.C
//this one works:
	  IOField<scalar> m(c.fieldIOobject("m",IOobject::NO_READ),np);
//this one not: 
    	  IOField<List<scalar > >  myList(c.fieldIOobject("myList",IOobject::NO_READ),np);
And i get the error message:

/opt/openfoam171/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/Field.H:87: error: no type named ‘cmptType’ in ‘class Foam::pTraits<Foam::List<double> >’
So two questions:
1.) How do I add a lot of scalars (lets say 50-100) to my particle class, so that i have proper IO ?
2.) If the answer is list, how do I manage the IO?

I hope my response is not too late. I do not know what you need exactly but a scalarField works for the IOField so as vectorField and symmTensorField

IOField<scalarField> matHistoryScalar(
