Dear all,
In my simulation once the cancer cell comes in to contact with ECM,  starts to secrete MMP and once the MMP concentration in ECM lattice sites reach a threshold, they switches their type from ECM to medium or they die. but my code doesnt work.(ECM is frozen)
Sincerely,

You can't set the volume and surface qualities for MEDIUM or for a single pixel. You should be able to just set the cell type of the pixel to MEDIUM (cell.type=0).

So try just
   px.type=0
and remove the px.target... and px.lambda... commands

If that simple approach doesn't work try
    self.cellField.set(px,CompuCell.getMediumCell())
Yeah target volume was just an assupmtion and was uncommented and in fact i had used px.type=0 but it didnt work. thank you  very much for your help, self.cellField.set(px,CompuCell.getMediumCell()) solved the issue.
