show_as turns on and off atom and bond representations.

Details

The available representations are the usual:

(History: Python 2.6 came out with the keyword as which is also a PyMOL keyword. So, we had to change the PyMOL-named keyword to show_as.)

USAGE

show_as representation [, selection ]

ARGUMENTS

  • representation = lines, spheres, mesh, ribbon, cartoon, sticks, dots, surface, labels, extent, nonbonded, nb_spheres, slice, extent, slice, dashes, angles, dihedrals, cgo, cell, callback, everything
  • selection = string {default: all}

EXAMPLES

 
# show the backbone as lines
show_as lines, name ca or name c or name n

# show everything as a ribbon
show_as ribbon

PYMOL API

 
cmd.show_as(string representation, string selection)

NOTES

  • selection can be an object name
  • as alone will turn on lines and nonbonded and hide everything else.
