AuxiliaryCoordinate.set_data(data, copy=True, inplace=True)[source]

Set the data.

The units, calendar and fill value of the incoming Data instance are removed prior to insertion.

New in version 3.0.0.

data: Data

The data to be inserted.

A data_like object is any object that can be converted to a Data object, i.e. numpy array_like objects, Data objects, and cf instances that contain Data objects.

copy: bool, optional

If False then do not copy the data prior to insertion. By default the data are copied.

inplace: bool, optional:

If False then do not do the operation in-place and return a new, modified AuxiliaryCoordinate instance. By default the operation is in-place and None is returned.

New in version 3.7.0.

None or AuxiliaryCoordinate

If the operation was in-place then None is returned, otherwise return a new AuxiliaryCoordinate instance containing the new data.
