AHELP for CIAO 4.13 Sherpa v1


Context: data


Return the data used by plot_bkg_source.


get_bkg_source_plot(id=None, lo=None, hi=None, bkg_id=None, recalc=True)

id - int or str, optional
lo - number, optional
hi - number, optional
bkg_id - int or str, optional
recalc - bool, optional


Example 1

Retrieve the source plot information for the background of the default data set and display it:

>>> splot = get_bkg_source_plot()
>>> print(splot)

Example 2

Return the background plot data for data set 2, and then use it to create a plot:

>>> s2 = get_bkg_source_plot(2)
>>> s2.plot()

Example 3

Create a plot of the first two background components of the 'histate' data set, overplotting the second on the first:

>>> b1 = get_bkg_source_plot('histate', bkg_id=1)
>>> b2 = get_bkg_source_plot('histate', bkg_id=2)
>>> b1.plot()
>>> b2.overplot()

Example 4

Retrieve the background source plots for the 0.5 to 7 range of the 'jet' and 'core' data sets and display them on the same plot:

>>> splot1 = get_bkg_source_plot(id='jet', lo=0.5, hi=7)
>>> splot2 = get_bkg_source_plot(id='core', lo=0.5, hi=7)
>>> splot1.plot()
>>> splot2.overplot()

Example 5

For a PHA data set, the units on both the X and Y axes of the plot are controlled by the `set_analysis` command. In this case the Y axis will be in units of photons/s/cm^2 and the X axis in keV:

>>> set_analysis('energy', factor=1)
>>> splot = get_bkg_source_plot()
>>> print(splot)


The parameters for this function are:

Parameter Definition
id The data set that provides the data. If not given then the default identifier is used, as returned by `get_default_id` .
lo The low value to plot.
hi The high value to plot.
bkg_id Identify the background component to use, if there are multiple ones associated with the data set.
recalc If False then the results from the last call to `plot_bkg_source` (or `get_bkg_source_plot` ) are returned, otherwise the data is re-generated.

Return value

The return value from this function is:

source -- An object representing the data used to create the plot by `plot_bkg_source` .
