mexSet (C)

Set value of specified graphics property

Do not use mexSet. Use mxSetProperty instead.

C Syntax

#include "mex.h"
int mexSet(double handle, const char *property,
  mxArray *value);



Handle to a particular graphics object


String naming a graphics property


Pointer to an mxArray holding the new value to assign to the property


0 on success; 1 on failure. Possible causes of failure include:

  • Specifying a nonexistent property.

  • Specifying an illegal value for that property, for example, specifying a string value for a numerical property.


Call mexSet to set the value of the property of a certain graphics object. mexSet is the API equivalent of the MATLAB® set function. To get the value of a graphics property, call mexGet.
