p1$id # get id
p1$validate(mtcars) # check if parameter can be updated
p1$set(mtcars) # set parameter to mtcars

# create table parameter with validation function that requires
# all values in the first column to be less then 200 and that the
# parameter have the same column names as the iris data set
