I would like to define some color for the different components of my detector on GDML. I tried to add it using exactly the example given in the GDML user guide (<auxiliary auxtype=”Color” auxvalue=”blue”/>), but it didn't work. I get
Evaluator : unknown variable
*** ExceptionHandler is not defined ***
*** G4Exception : InvalidExpression issued by : G4GDMLEvaluator::Evaluate() Error in expression: blue ... Aborted
Does anyone know how to do it correctly? Do I have to modified the way the auxiliary are read or the example in persistency/gdml/G01 is enough?
Also, I was wondering if it was possible to define material using only a name and a density considering that it is not an element and that the chemical composition is unknown? I' using, for example, FR4, so my definition would be
<material name="FR4" > <D value="1.85" /> </material>
but I get an error from G4Element saying that Z and A can't be smaller than 1. And also, why is the material read as an element and not as a material using G4Material?
