Update or Re-fit a Model
update allows a user to over-ride the tuning parameter selection process by specifying a set of tuning parameters or to update the model object to the latest version of this package.
"update"(object, param = NULL, ...)
an object of class
- a data frame or named list of all tuning parameters
- not currently used
If the model object was created with version 5.17-7 or earlier, the underlying package structure was different. To make old
train objects consistent with the new structure, use
param = NULL to get the same object back with updates.
To update the model parameters, the training data must be stored in the model object (see the option
trainControl. Also, all tuning parameters must be specified in the
param slot. All other options are held constant, including the original pre-processing (if any), options passed in using code... and so on. When printing, the verbiage "The tuning parameter was set manually." is used to describe how the tuning parameters were created.
