If your driver is not in the matlabroot\toolbox\instrument\instrument\drivers directory,
in the MATLAB® Command Window, make sure that the directory containing
your driver is on the MATLAB path.
If you do not see the directory in the path listing, and the
driver is not in the matlabroot\toolbox\instrument\instrument\drivers directory,
add the directory to the path with the command
where directory is the
pathname to the directory containing your driver.
Open the Test & Measurement Tool.
In the Test & Measurement Tool tree,
expand the Instrument Drivers node.
Select the MATLAB Instrument Drivers node.
Your driver might not be listed yet, so
click Scan in the lower-right corner
of the tool. If the tool found your driver, it is listed in the tree
Select the ie_drv.mdd node
in the tree.
Right-click the ie_drv.mdd node
in the tree, and select Create Device Object
Using Driver. The following dialog box appears.
Select the Select
the created device object in the tree on dialog close check
box. The device object in this example does not need a resource, so
keep that field empty.
When the Test & Measurement Tool creates the device object,
an entry for the object appears as a node in the tree. The Browser-ie_drv node
should already be selected in the tree. This refers to the device
object you just created.
Click Connect in
the upper-right corner of the Test & Measurement Tool. This establishes
a communication channel between the tool and the IE browser window,
and an empty IE window appears on your screen. Remember that the Create code for your driver creates an object
for the IE browser, and the Connect code
and makes its window visible.
The driver you created allows you to specify where the browser
window appears on your screen and how large it is.
Click the Properties tab,
and then select Top in the Device object properties list.
The first value displayed for setting this property is 0.0.
Click Set. The IE
browser window shifts upward to the top edge of your screen.
With the mouse, grab the IE window, and
drag it down some distance from the top of the screen.
Now return to the Test & Measurement
Tool window, and click Get for the Top property.
Notice in the Response pane how many pixels down
you have moved the window.
Use your driver Vsize property to change
the size of the browser window.
Select Vsize in the Device object properties list.
Enter a property value of 200,
and click Set. Notice the IE window size.
Enter a property value of 400 and
click Set. Notice the IE window size.
Try resizing the IE browser window directly
with the mouse. Then in the Test & Measurement Tool, click Get for
the Vsize property. Notice the value returned
to the Response pane.
Use the goTo function of your generic driver
to control the Web page that the browser displays.
In the Test & Measurement Tool, click
the Functions tab for your device object.
Select goTo in
the list of Device object functions.
In the Input argument(s) field,
enter 'www.mathworks.com'. Be sure to include the
Click Execute. Observe
the IE browser and see that it displays the MathWorks Web site.
Experiment freely. When you are finished,
right-click the Browser-ie_drv node in the tree
and select Delete Object. Close the
Test & Measurement Tool, and close the IE browser window you created
in this example.
