ak.with_name(array, name, highlevel=True, behavior=None)
  • base – Data containing records or tuples.

  • name (str) – Name to give to the records or tuples; this assigns the "__record__" parameter.

  • highlevel (bool) – If True, return an ak.Array; otherwise, return a low-level ak.layout.Content subclass.

  • behavior (None or dict) – Custom ak.behavior for the output array, if high-level.

Returns an ak.Array or ak.Record (or low-level equivalent, if highlevel=False) with a new name. This function does not change the array in-place.

The records or tuples may be nested within multiple levels of nested lists. If records are nested within records, only the outermost are affected.

Setting the "__record__" parameter makes it possible to add behaviors to the data; see ak.Array and ak.behavior for a more complete description.
