copyobj (any object)

Copy SimBiology object and its children

Syntax

copiedObj = copyobj(Obj, parentObj)
copiedObj = copyobj(modelObj)

Arguments

ObjAbstract kinetic law, compartment, configuration set, event, kinetic law, model, parameter, reaction, rule, species, or variant object.
parentObj
If copiedObj is...parentObj must be...

modelObjModel object to be copied.
copiedObjOutput returned by the copyobj method with the parent set as specified in input argument (parentObj).

Description

copiedObj = copyobj(Obj, parentObj) makes a copy of a SimBiology® object (Obj) and returns a pointer to the copy (copiedObj). In the copied object (copiedObj), this method assigns a value (parentObj) to the property Parent.

copiedObj = copyobj(modelObj) makes a copy of a model object (modelObj) and returns the copy (copiedObj). In the copied model object (copiedObj), this method assigns the root object to the property Parent.

    Note:   When the copyobj method copies a model, it resets the StatesToLog property to the default value. Similarly, the Inputs and Outputs properties are not copied but rather left empty. Thus, when you simulate a copied model you see results for the default states, unless you manually update these properties.

Examples

Create a reaction object separate from a model object, and then add it to a model.

  1. Create a model object and add a reaction object.

    modelObj1 = sbiomodel('cell');
    reactionObj = addreaction(modelObj1, 'a -> b');
  2. Create a copy of the reaction object and assign it to another model object.

    modelObj2 = sbiomodel('cell2');
    reactionObjCopy = copyobj(reactionObj, modelObj2);
    modelObj2.Reactions
    
    SimBiology Reaction Array
