isprop (COM)

Determine whether input is COM object property

Syntax

tf = isprop(h,'propertyname')

Description

tf = isprop(h,'propertyname') returns logical 1 (true) if the specified name is a property of COM object h. Otherwise, returns logical 0 (false).

COM functions are available on Microsoft® Windows® systems only.

Examples

Test a property of an instance of a Microsoft Excel® application.

h = actxserver('Excel.Application');
isprop(h,'UsableWidth')

MATLAB® returns true, UsableWidth is a property.

Try the same test on SaveWorkspace.

isprop(h,'SaveWorkspace')

MATLAB returns false. SaveWorkspace is not a property; it is a method.
