This topic describes information specific to .NET methods. For general information about calling methods on objects in MATLAB®, see Calling Object Methods.
Use the following MATLAB functions to view the methods of a class. You can use these functions without creating an instance of the class. These functions do not list generic methods; use your product documentation to get information on generic methods.
methods — View method names
methods with '-full' option — View method names with argument list
methodsview — Graphical representation of method list
You might find the methodsview window easier to use as a reference guide because you do not need to scroll through the Command Window to find information. For example, open a methodsview window for the System.String class:
MATLAB maps C# keywords to MATLAB method access attributes, as shown in the following table.
|C# Method Keyword||MATLAB Attribute|
|params||Array of particular type|
|protected, private, internal, protected internal||Not visible to MATLAB|
MATLAB maps VB.NET keywords to MATLAB method access attributes, as shown in the following table.
|VB.NET Method Keyword||MATLAB Attribute|
MATLAB uses the following rules to populate method signatures.
obj is the output from the constructor.
this is the object argument.
RetVal is the return type of a method.
All other arguments use the .NET metadata.
MATLAB uses the following rules to select a method signature.
