Sets and Lists

There are many instances in GSA where there is a need to work with collections of nodes, elements, cases, etc. Depending on the context these can be either Selection Sets or Lists.

Lists are used where the user is required to specify a collection of entities. A list is expressed as a string of text in a specific syntax.

Sets are only specified and displayed in Graphic Views though they can be translated into lists and used elsewhere in the program. Forming and working with selection sets is described in detail in Working with Graphic Views.

Lists can either be explicit or embedded.
