getnodesbyid (biograph)

Get handles to nodes


NodesHandles = getnodesbyid(BGobj,NodeIDs)



Biograph object.


Enter a character vector or cell array of character vectors containing node identifications.


NodesHandles = getnodesbyid(BGobj,NodeIDs) gets the handles for the specified nodes (NodeIDs) in a biograph object.


  1. Create a biograph object.

    species = {'Homosapiens','Pan','Gorilla','Pongo','Baboon',...
    cm = magic(7)>25 & 1-eye(7);
    bg = biograph(cm, species)
  2. Find the handles to members of the Cercopithecidae family and members of the Hominidae family.

    Cercopithecidae = {'Macaca','Baboon'};
    Hominidae = {'Homosapiens','Pan','Gorilla','Pongo'};
    CercopithecidaeNodes = getnodesbyid(bg,Cercopithecidae);
    HominidaeNodes = getnodesbyid(bg,Hominidae);
  3. Color the families differently and draw a graph.
