isundefined

Find undefined elements in categorical array

Syntax

Description

example

TF = isundefined(A) returns a logical array, TF, that indicates which elements in the categorical array, A, contain undefined values. isundefined returns logical 1 (true) for undefined elements; otherwise it returns logical 0 (false). The size of TF is the same as the size of A.

Any elements in A without a corresponding category are undefined. Undefined values are similar to NaN in numeric arrays.

Examples

collapse all

Create a categorical array, A, from numeric values where 1, 2, and 3 represent red, green, and blue respectively.

A = categorical([4 1; 2 3; 2 1; 3 4; 1 1],1:3,{'red','green','blue'})
A = 

     <undefined>      red         
     green            blue        
     green            red         
     blue             <undefined> 
     red              red         

A is a 5-by-2 categorical array with three categories: red, green, and blue. Array elements corresponding to the numeric value 4 in the input array to the categorical function do not have a corresponding category. Therefore, they are undefined in the output categorical array, A.

Find undefined elements in A.

TF = isundefined(A)
TF =

  5×2 logical array

   1   0
   0   0
   0   0
   0   1
   0   0

A(1,1) and A(4,2) are undefined.

Categorical array, specified as a vector, matrix, or multidimensional array.
