get_model_component

Context: modeling

Synopsis

Returns a model component given its name.

Syntax

get_model_component(name)

name - str

Example

When a model component is created, a variable is created that contains the model instance. The instance can also be returned with `get_model_component` , which can then be queried or used to change the model settings:

>>> create_model_component('gauss1d', 'gline')
>>> gmodel = get_model_component('gline')
>>> gmodel.name
'gauss1d.gline'
>>> print([p.name for p in gmodel.pars])
['fwhm', 'pos', 'ampl']
>>> gmodel.fwhm.val = 12.2
>>> gmodel.fwhm.freeze()

PARAMETERS

The parameter for this function is:

Parameter Definition
name The name of the model component.

Return value

The return value from this function is:

component -- The model component object.

Notes

The model instances are named as modeltype.username, and it is the username component that is used here to access the instance.
