ETABs API - Retrieve Auto Seismic Info

ETABs API - Retrieve Auto Seismic Info

ETABs API - Retrieve Auto Seismic Info

I am trying to retreive auto seismic loading information with the ETABs API.

A few problems I am running into.

The documentation points to this AutoSeismic.GetASCE716() being available and it would expose a lot of the information I am looking for:

The problem is that I do not see this GetASCE716 property exposed in C sharp?

The GetIBC2006 function is exposed, but does not work to return any meaningful results.

Another issue, the model I am working with might have ASCE7-22 or ASCE 7-16 loading. Do new functions in the API need to be exposed to reveal this information?

Really, the only item I truly care about is retrieving the differing types of loads that are created, aka, X, X +e, X -e, Y, Y -e, Y +e. If anyone else knows a way to get to this programmatically, that would be super helpful.

RE: ETABs API - Retrieve Auto Seismic Info

Solved this one, seems like databasetables are the play moving forward with API. All this info is contained in the database table, using GetTableForDisplayArray function
