Unit: SDL_statis
Class: TPLSModel
Declaration: property IsDiscriminantModel: boolean;

The property IsDiscriminantModel controls whether the PLS model is based on binary (indicator) response variables (PLS discriminant analysis) or on continuous ones (PLS regression). If IsDiscriminantModel is set TRUE the optimum thresholds for the classfier (property ClassifThreshold) are automatically determined when CalculateModel is called.

Please note that when applying a discriminant model to unknown data, the estimated response values have to be compared to the classifier thresholds in order to obtain a binary response.
