Tecplot offers an enormous array of style settings. If you are writing an add-on or python automation, you can use the Code Generator to determine the hierarchy of the Style Value you need. These snippets can be cut and pasted. The 2008R2 version will generate python-compatible code for Tecplot "get" functions.

Compatible with: Tecplot 360/Focus 2008
The Python style generation is available only in Tecplot 360/Focus 2008 Release 2 (September 2008)
Style generation for string parameters (e.g., time/date values) refers to a memory location, not the actual string value. This is a bug.
ArgList: appendSet, appendSringList do not copy the appended items [bug 9892]

Start Tecplot. There will be a new menu option under Tools:
The help page has a lot more detail. However, there are three modes (they're all performing the same function):
Toolbox mode - In Tecplot 360/Focus 2008, we added a StyleValue class (see the ADK reference manual) to simplify working with style settings. We recommend using this versus classic mode.
Classic mode - generates code using Tecplot's TcUtil layer. These functions are all in C, many available in FORTRAN.
Python mode - generates set style functions that are accessible via Python. This mode is supported only for Tecplot 360/Focus 2008 Release 2 (September 2008):
