Re: ShadowFunctionOrSetType

Hi Michelle,

If you have a ScalarMap object, you can find out what is being mapped
with ScalarMap.getScalar().getName(). You can find out what it is being
mapped to with ScalarMap.getDisplayScalar.getName(). Since you have an
array of ScalarMap objects, it should be simple to iterate through them
and check each one to see if it matches your conditions.

If for some reason the above is insufficient, I must ask, if you are
generating these mappings elsewhere in your *own code*, why can't you
add functionality to detect such mappings at the point of generation,
instead of trying to determine it from VisAD later?  That is, if I name
my dog Rover, does it make sense to ask my dog what his name is later?
It makes more sense for me to remember his name myself.
