Variables

Add a variable

Use add_variable to add a single variable.

julia> x = MOI.add_variable(model)
MathOptInterface.VariableIndex(1)

add_variable returns a VariableIndex type, which should be used to refer to the added variable in other calls.

Check if a VariableIndex is valid using is_valid.

julia> MOI.is_valid(model, x)
true

Use add_variables to add a number of variables.

julia> y = MOI.add_variables(model, 2)
2-element Vector{MathOptInterface.VariableIndex}:
 MathOptInterface.VariableIndex(2)
 MathOptInterface.VariableIndex(3)
Warning

The integer does not necessarily corresond to the column inside an optimizer!

Delete a variable

Delete a variable using delete.

julia> MOI.delete(model, x)

julia> MOI.is_valid(model, x)
false
Warning

Not all ModelLike models support deleting variables. A DeleteNotAllowed error is thrown if this is not supported.

Variable attributes

The following attributes are available for variables:

Get and set these attributes using get and set.

julia> MOI.set(model, MOI.VariableName(), x, "var_x")

julia> MOI.get(model, MOI.VariableName(), x)
"var_x"
