Python Attribute Examples

Python Attribute Examples

Consider the case where you have a Gurobi model <span>$</span>m<span>$</span>. You can retrieve the number of variables in the model by querying the NumVars model attribute:

(Note that attribute capitalization doesn't matter in the Python interface, so you could also query <span>$</span>m.NumVars<span>$</span> or <span>$</span>m.numvars<span>$</span>).

If you've performed optimization on the model, the optimal objective value can be obtained by querying the ObjVal model attribute:


If you'd like to query the value that a variable takes in the computed solution, you can query the X attribute for the corresponding variable object:

  for v in m.getVars():
You can also query the value of <span>$</span>X<span>$</span> for multiple variables in a single getAttr call on the model <span>$</span>m<span>$</span>:
  print(m.getAttr(GRB.Attr.x, m.getVars()))

For each attribute query method, there's an analogous <span>$</span>set<span>$</span> routine. To set the upper bound of a variable, for example:

  v = m.getVars()[0]
  v.ub = 0
(In this example, we've set the upper bound for the first variable in the model to 0).
