- All Known Subinterfaces:
public interface MiCellFilterDefines a cell filter.
This interface is used for filtering cells.
Filtering cells is a way to specify which cells are used and which cells are ignored during the mesh extraction.
Each class implementing
MiCellFiltermust implement an
acceptCellmethod with either 1, 2 or 3 indices as arguments.
false, the cell identified by these indices is not taken into account by the extraction. It is as if the mesh does not contain this cell.
In order to define a custom cell filter, create a class derived from one of the following classes.

getTimeStamp()Returns for this filter a unique time stamp across all filters in the application.
long getTimeStamp()Returns for this filter a unique time stamp across all filters in the application.
When the content of the filter changes, the time stamp must increase. The time stamp allows extractors to identify this filter and to be aware about any changes to it.
MxTimeStampcan be used to generate a valid time stamp.
