sherpa.ui.set_dep(id, val=None)

Set the dependent axis of a data set.

  • id (int or str, optional) – The data set to use. If not given then the default identifier is used, as returned by get_default_id.

  • val (array) – The array of values for the dependent axis.

The function does not follow the normal Python standards for parameter use, since it is designed for easy interactive use. When called with a single un-named argument, it is taken to be the val parameter. If given two un-named arguments, then they are interpreted as the id and val parameters, respectively.


Create a 1D data set with values at (0,4), (2,10), (4,12), (6,8), (8,2), and (10,12):

>>> dataspace1d(0, 10, 2, dstype=Data1D)
>>> set_dep([4, 10, 12, 8, 2, 12])

Set the values for the data set ‘src’:

>>> set_dep('src', y1)
