GetVariable

Data from variable in Automation server workspace

Synopsis

IDL Method Signature

HRESULT GetVariable([in] BSTR varname, [in] BSTR workspace, 
[out, retval] VARIANT* pdata)

Microsoft Visual Basic Client

GetVariable(varname As String, workspace As String) As Object

MATLAB Client

D = GetVariable(h,'varname','workspace')

Description

D = GetVariable(h,'varname','workspace') gets data stored in variable varname from the specified workspace of the server attached to handle h and returns it in output argument D. The values for workspace are base or global.

Do not use GetVariable on sparse arrays, structures, or function handles.

If your scripting language requires a result be returned explicitly, use the GetVariable function in place of GetWorkspaceData, GetFullMatrix, or GetCharArray.

Examples

This example uses a Visual Basic® .NET client to read data from a MATLAB® Automation server:

Dim Matlab As Object
Dim Result As String
Dim C2 As Variant
Matlab = CreateObject("matlab.application")
Result = Matlab.Execute("C1 = {25.72, 'hello', rand(4)};")
C2 = Matlab.GetVariable("C1", "base")
MsgBox("Second item in cell array: " & C2(0, 1))
