Hi,

Is it possible to have a nonlinear constraint on a factor loading using observed variables? For instance, my mplus input looks something like this:

f by item2* item2 item4;
f by item1* (fl);

f@1;

MODEL CONSTRAINT:
NEW(p1);
fl=p1*age;

where age is an observed variable that I have in the "constraint" statement.

When I do this I get this error -
*** FATAL ERROR
THIS MODEL IS NOT AVAILABLE.

Thanks!
