Unit object

Hold information about user-defined unit


The SimBiology® unit object holds information about user-defined units. To create a unit, create the unit object and add the unit to the library using the sbioaddtolibrary function.

Use the unit object property Composition to specify the composition of your units. See Property Summary for links to unit 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 graphically change unit object properties in the SimBiology desktop. For more information, see SimBiology Model Component Libraries.
