Default Macro problem: export specific monitors

HerrOlsson is on a distinguished road
I'm trying to export some of my monitors from my simulation to a csv file using a macro (I have A LOT of monitors, so I have to use a macro).

I want to export only the monitors which has "Force" in their name, and "time step" as trigger. My problem is that I can't find out how to write the line for filtering out the monitors I want. I can filter out the ones with "Force" in the name, no problem. But I don't know how to filter on trigger type.

My code is as below:
package macro;

import java.util.*;

import star.common.*;
import star.base.neo.*;

public class solutionDataExport extends StarMacro {
  public void execute() {

  private void execute0() {

    Simulation simulation_0 = 
	// Collect all monitors
    Collection<Monitor> monitorReports = simulation_0.getMonitorManager().getMonitors();
	// Create an empty vector to which the monitors will be added
	Vector monitorsVector = new NeoObjectVector(new Object[] {});
	// Add monitors with "Force" in name and trigger type time step to vector 
	for (Iterator<Monitor> iterator = monitorReports.iterator(); iterator.hasNext();) {
		Monitor thisMonitor =;
		if (thisMonitor.getPresentationName().contains("Force") && ???){
	// Export csv-file
	simulation_0.getMonitorManager().export("./simulationData.csv", ",", monitorsVector);
In other words, with what should I replace ??? in line 29 of the code to make it work as intended?
Thanks in advance!
