# image_fit¶

sherpa.astro.ui.image_fit(id=None, newframe=True, tile=True, deleteframes=True)

Display the data, model, and residuals for a data set in the image viewer.

This function displays the data, model (including any instrument response), and the residuals (data - model), for a data set.

The image viewer is automatically started if it is not already open.

Parameters: id (int or str, optional) – The data set. If not given then the default identifier is used, as returned by get_default_id. newframe (bool, optional) – Create a new frame for the data? If False, the default, then the data will be displayed in the current frame. tile (bool, optional) – Should the frames be tiles? If False, the default, then only a single frame is displayed. deleteframes (bool, optional) – Should existing frames be deleted? The default is True. sherpa.utils.err.IdentifierErr – If the data set does not exist or a source expression has not been set.

Examples

Display the fit results - that is, the data, model, and residuals - for the default data set.

>>> image_fit()


Do not tile the frames (the three frames are loaded, but only the last displayed, the residuals), and then change the frame being displayed to the second one (the model).

>>> image_fit('img', tile=False)
>>> image_xpaset('frame 2')
