meta.class.fromName

Return meta.class object associated with named class

Syntax

mcls = meta.class.fromName('ClassName')

Description

mcls = meta.class.fromName('ClassName') is a static method that returns the meta.class object associated with the class ClassName. Note that you can also use the ? operator to obtain the meta.class object for a class name:

mcls = ?ClassName;

The equivalent call to meta.class.fromName is:

mcls = meta.class.fromName('ClassName');

Use meta.class.fromName when using a char variable for the class name:

function mcls = getMetaClass(clname) 
   % Do error checking
   mcls = meta.class.fromName(clname);
   ...
end
