 I am trying to change the value of an element in a record array
#1
[inline]import numpy as np
person_data_def = [('name', 'm8'),('height', 'f8'),('weight', 'f8'),('age', 'i8')]
people_array = np.zeros(4, dtype=person_data_def)
print(people_array)
people_array[0] = ('delta', 73, 300, 38)
print(people_array)[/inline]

Output:
[(0, 0., 0., 0) (0, 0., 0., 0) (0, 0., 0., 0) (0, 0., 0., 0)]
Error:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:/Users/user/PycharmProjects/test/test2.py", line 5, in <module> people_array[0] = ('delta', 73, 300, 38) ValueError: Could not convert object to NumPy timedelta

dtype is set to timedelta and then you want to pass string? Quite obviously numpy doesn't allow that, otherwise - what is the point of dtypes.

Maybe following can help:

>>> person_data_def = [('name', 'm8'),('height', 'f8'),('weight', 'f8'),('age', 'i8')]                                                       
>>> people_array = np.zeros(4, dtype=person_data_def)      # you create 4-row array of zeros
>>> people_array
array([(0, 0., 0., 0), (0, 0., 0., 0), (0, 0., 0., 0), (0, 0., 0., 0)],
      dtype=[('name', '<m8'), ('height', '<f8'), ('weight', '<f8'), ('age', '<i8')])                                                                                     
>>> np.dtype(people_array[0][0])                            # first element of first row                                                                                                            
dtype('<m8') 
>>> people_array[0][0] = 5                                  # accepts integer

I'm not 'in'-sane. Indeed, I am so far 'out' of sane that you appear a tiny blip on the distant coast of sanity. Bucky Katt, Get Fuzzy
