Number of element nodes in the element set.

## Description

This routine returns the number of element nodes for the element set. This depends only on the topology (test, wedges, and so on) of the elements in the element set. For example,
Integer nElemNodes ;
...
nElemNodes = udfGetElmNElemNodes( udfHd ) ;

## Errors

• This routine expects a valid udfHd.
• This routine may only be called within a Body Force, Material Model or Component Model user function.
