Get

From PyMOLWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

get returns the value of a setting.

This command is very useful for determining the any setting(s) when writing a script. For example, with this command you can find out if the background is opaque, where the light source is, etc.

USAGE

get name [, selection [, state ]]

Examples

get opaque_background

get line_width

PYMOL API

print cmd.get(string name, string object, int state, int quiet)

Notes

  • The API command will not print out and should be stored or used for comparison
  • "get" currently only works with global, per-object, and per-state settings. There is currently no way to retrieve per-atom settings.
