pandas.Panel.convert_objects

Panel.convert_objects(convert_dates=True, convert_numeric=False, convert_timedeltas=True, copy=True) [source]

Attempt to infer better dtype for object columns.

Deprecated since version 0.21.0.

Parameters:

convert_dates : boolean, default True

If True, convert to date where possible. If ‘coerce’, force conversion, with unconvertible values becoming NaT.

convert_numeric : boolean, default False

If True, attempt to coerce to numbers (including strings), with unconvertible values becoming NaN.

convert_timedeltas : boolean, default True

If True, convert to timedelta where possible. If ‘coerce’, force conversion, with unconvertible values becoming NaT.

copy : boolean, default True

If True, return a copy even if no copy is necessary (e.g. no conversion was done). Note: This is meant for internal use, and should not be confused with inplace.

Returns:
converted : same as input object
