Dear John,

I am beginning to understand Geant4's transportation process.
GetFieldValue() is used to solve a particle's equation of motion in the field by each step.
Geant4 handles particle's trajectory, comparing the solved equation with some points (e.g. initial-position, mid-position and endpoint).

I set a command you say, I  could check steps.

Thank you for your help.

Best Reagrds,
