[chimera-dev] Retrieving model_id / model_name via API

Hi Lars,
	The model attributes for the ID are ‘id’/‘subid’ for the parts before and after any ‘.’ respectively, and the ‘name’ attribute has the model name.  You would loop through all volume models with something like:

from chimera import openModels
from VolumeViewer import Volume
for vol in openModels.list(modelTypes=[Volume]):
	print “%d.%d %s” % (vol.id <http://vol.id/>, vol.subid, vol.name)

We realize the programmer documentation isn’t great.  What little we have you can find here: https://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/docs/ProgrammersGuide/index.html <https://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/docs/ProgrammersGuide/index.html> .  One of our objectives for ChimeraX is much better programmer documentation.
