How do I get the length and vertex values of a simple edge

ron_morelandron_moreland Member Posts: 79 ✭✭
Is there a simple example of how to query an edge for length and vertices? I've looked through several .fs examples and I get lost on what is relevant to my question. In particular the concept of context. If I pass in the edge in precondition, what should the context be when I query that edge?

    Thanks, I'll go through it again. It's been a while.I haven't looked at the second example.

    Don't hesitate to ask if this is not clear after that.

    I went though the examples. The second was particularly helpful, It brought up a couple points I hadn't thought of and explain the solution. The warnings about "qNthElement" and entity order was interesting. I didn't consider the problem I could encounter with that.
    Thanks for the help.
