Welcome to our advanced tutorials on how to use the open source ChainBuilder software. Below are a few of the many different types of models that can be created with the ChainBuilder software. The tutorials assume some background knowledge of the ChainBuilder software.
If this is your first time using the ChainBuilder software, please review the Basic Tutorials first.:
The Button Model allows the user to control exactly when a model should start to run. Normally, ChainBuilder will run models automatically, each time inputs are altered. By adding a button to your model, you can interrupt the connection between the inputs and the workflow. This is especially helpful if the user must alter multiple inputs before running the model.
The Scenario Model allows you to save specific inputs into a named group. Once the group of inputs is saved, it can be re-accessed at a later time. This is especially helpful if there are a limited number of possibilities you would like to compare. This may also be helpful if you want to prepare the model to run in a specific way for a presentation.
There are three steps: 1. Create the base model, without scenario capabilities 2. Create a workflow for scenarios 3. Assign input parameters to scenarios.
