Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.
Inline: Display the subject line only or also the text of the posting(s); for the choice "All" the "Outline" choices are switched off.
|1||0||1||no text / full text of posting|
|2||1||All||text for level 1 only / text for All postings|
Outline: Choose the depth of the posting thread, successive toggle controls provide increasing detail.
|1||2||1||2 levels / 1 level (original posting)|
|2||3||2||3 levels / 2 levels|
|3||3||All||3 levels / all levels (all postings)|
What I do is declare a std::map<int,int> that maps from trackID to PDGid, clear it in BeginOfEventAction(), also clear it in EndOfEventAction(), and add an entry in PreUserTrackingAction(). Now I can get the PDGid of the parent track, and thus all I need to know.
The question is where to declare it, because it is used in several different Geant4 classes. My approach is to have a singleton class BLManager that contains all Geant4 callbacks, so I simply declare it in that class. Because of the way the callback classes are deleted, this requires a small wrapper class for each Geant4 callback class.
Instead of that, you could just declare the map to be global.
