AHELP for CIAO 4.16 Sherpa


Context: plotting


Return the data used to create the fit plot.


get_fit_plot(id=None, recalc=True)

id - int or str, optional
recalc - bool, optional


Example 1

Create the data needed to create the "fit plot" for the default data set and display it:

>>> fplot = get_fit_plot()
>>> print(fplot)

Example 2

Return the plot data for data set 2, and then use it to create a plot:

>>> f2 = get_fit_plot(2)
>>> f2.plot()

Example 3

The fit plot consists of a combination of a data plot and a model plot, which are captured in the `dataplot` and `modelplot` attributes of the return value. These can be used to display the plots individually, such as:

>>> f2.dataplot.plot()
>>> f2.modelplot.plot()

or, to combine the two:

>>> f2.dataplot.plot()
>>> f2.modelplot.overplot()


The parameters for this function are:

Parameter Definition
id The data set that provides the data. If not given then the default identifier is used, as returned by `get_default_id` .
recalc If False then the results from the last call to `plot_fit` (or `get_fit_plot` ) are returned, otherwise the data is re-generated.

Return value

The return value from this function is:

data -- An object representing the data used to create the plot by `plot_fit` . It contains the data from `get_data_plot` and `get_model_plot` in the dataplot and modelplot attributes.
