Parameter object

Parameter and scope information


The parameter object represents a parameter, which is a quantity that can change or can be constant. SimBiology® parameters are generally used to define rate constants. You can add parameter objects to a model object or a kinetic law object. The scope of a parameter depends on where you add the parameter object: If you add the parameter object to a model object, the parameter is available to all reactions in the model and the Parent property of the parameter object is SimBiology.Model. If you add the parameter object to a kinetic law object, the parameter is available only to the reaction for which you are using the kinetic law object and the Parent property of the parameter object is SimBiology.KineticLaw.

See Property Summary for links to parameter object property reference pages.

Properties define the characteristics of an object. Use the get and set commands to list object properties and change their values at the command line. You can graphically change object properties in the graphical user interface.
