Root object

Hold models, unit libraries, and abstract kinetic law libraries


The SimBiology® root object contains a list of the SimBiology model objects and SimBiology libraries. The components that the libraries contain are: all available units, unit prefixes, and available abstract kinetic law objects. There are two types of libraries: one contains components that are built in (BuiltInLibrary), and the other contains components that are user defined (UserDefinedLibrary).

You can retrieve SimBiology model objects from the SimBiology root object. A SimBiology model object has its Parent property set to the SimBiology root object.

See Property Summary for links to root 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 interactively change object properties in the SimBiology desktop.
