Difficulty with Setting Parameters in APIs

    Hello everyone, 
    I need small help for setting CPLEX parameters. I know  it is explained in the documentation, but independent from which parameter I set, I have some difficulties to set them  on different APIs. For example, in the following picture, you see, the setting MIP emphasis. What is the exact line to set it in C++ and  Python  ? Is there any specific formula that I can implement for all APIs to set parameters?  

    Thank you so much in advance

    Answer for P{ython API: assuming `model` is a Cplex instance,
    model.parameters.emphasis.mip returns a Parameter object, with a `set()` method to modify.

    For example (taken from the `` sample in Cplex Python samples), setting hidden  feasibility (=4) as mip emphasis reads:


    If you're using DOcplex, assuming `model` is an instance of `` , a simple assignment is enough:

    model.parameters.emphasis.mip= 4

      Hope this helps.
