How to merge workflow ?

Hello, I wrote a python result code to plot with dpf the total stiffness energy of named selection with name "R_" + number ("R_1", "R_2", "R_3", etc...).

The user has to select his named selection in the property provider, and the plot appears as a result. My code is :

def post_started(sender, analysis):# Do not edit this line


def define_dpf_workflow(analysis):

  import mech_dpf

  import Ans.DataProcessing as dpf


  # On charge nos résultats

  dataSource = dpf.DataSources(analysis.ResultFileName)

  # On charge notre modème

  model = dpf.Model(dataSource)

  R = this.GetCustomPropertyByPath("Énergie de déformation modale/Sélection").ValueString


  E = dpf.operators.result.stiffness_matrix_energy()   



  e = dpf.operators.math.accumulate(E)

  scale = dpf.operators.math.scale()



  a = e.outputs.getfield().Data[0]

  E_totale = dpf.operators.math.add_constant()



  dpf_workflow = dpf.Workflow()

  dpf_workflow.Add([E, E_totale, e, scale])


  dpf_workflow.Record('wf_energy', False)

  this.WorkflowId = dpf_workflow.GetRecordedId()

Then, I want to display all the plots "all the workflow" in on plot.

I have different possible plots and I want the python result to display all the parts in one plot. (with different colors because the stiffness energy is different for each part)

Any help could help,

Thank you

    @Adrien Vet ,

    I think the general idea you need is to manually create a DPF Field object with Elemental scoping. You can then manually set the values of the Field.Data property from a list (DataList) like this:
    DataCollection = System.Collections.Generic.List[System.Double](map(System.Double, DataList))

    You can also use an existing field where you extract the energy of each element, but then simply change the Field.Data values to be whatever you want. This is just to have an operator setup an elemental field rather than do it from scratch.
