MxConstraint-class {OpenMx}R Documentation

MxConstraint Class


MxConstraint is an S4 class. An MxConstraint object is a named entity. New instances of this class can be created using the function mxConstraint.


The MxConstraint class has the following slots:

name - The name of the object
formula - The R expression to be evaluated

The ‘name’ slot is the name of the MxConstraint object. Use of MxConstraint objects in other functions in the OpenMx library may require reference by name.

The ‘formula’ slot is an expression containing the expression to be evaluated. These objects are operated on or related to one another using one or more operations detailed in the mxConstraint help file.

Slots may be referenced with the @ symbol. See the documentation for Classes and the examples in the mxConstraint document for more information.
