Is the function field evaluation limited to only 3 variables or am I missing something? Is it possible to evaluate more?

Hi Ana,

No. You can have an unlimited number of variables. The key point is to call the evaluate method correctly. That is, using an array, such as:

  double value = _view.functionField.evaluate(new double[] {a,b,c,d } );

See the attached example, where I use 4 variables.
