Finding non-constant species in Simbiology Object

Asked by Deepa Maheshvare on 29 Apr 2019
Latest activity Answered by Jeremy Huard on 29 Apr 2019
I'm reading an sbml file to create a Simbiology object
modelObj = sbmlimport('File.xml');
I'd like to see the species that are non-constant.
I'm using the following line of code to obtain non-constant species
VariableSpecies = sbioselect(modelObj,'Where','Constant*','==',false)
The output is a function handle. I am not sure how to display the names of the species.
Any suggestions?

What you get is not a function handle but an heterogenous array of SimBiology objects. This array contains a mix of different component types like species, parameters or potentially compartments.
If this is what you want, you can get their names with
names = get(VariableSpecies, 'Name')
But if you only wanted species (not parameters nor compartments), you can get them like this:
speciesObj = sbioselect(modelObj, 'Type', 'Species','Where','Constant','==',false)
names = get(speciesObj, 'Name')
