AHELP for CIAO 4.9 ChIPS v1


Context: images


Hide the specified image.




The function arguments.

Argument Description
id A ChipsId structure identifying the item, or a string containing the name of the object.

If no argument is given then the current image is hidden, otherwise the argument determines what to hide. Note that this does not delete anything; use the display_image command to make the items visible again.

Example 1

chips> add_image('image.fits')
chips> hide_image()

Create a image, then hide it.

Example 2

chips> add_image('image.fits', 'id=events')
chips> add_image('image2.fits')
chips> id = ChipsId()
chips> id.image = 'events'
chips> hide_image(id)

Two images are created; the second image is current after it is created. The id.image command sets the image value of the ChipsId structure to the first image. That image is then hidden.

Example 3

chips> add_image('evt2_image.fits')
chips> add_image('evt2_image2.fits')
chips> hide_image('all')

Two images are created, then the hide_image command hides them both.
