Type representing tables with specified indices

Use only in the MuPAD Notebook Interface.

This functionality does not run in MATLAB.


testtype(obj, (obj_type))


Type::TableOfIndex(obj_type) represents tables with indices (keys) of type obj_type.

The call testtype(obj, Type::TableOfIndex(obj_type)) checks, whether obj is a table and all indices (keys) are of the type obj_type. If both conditions are met, the call returns TRUE, otherwise FALSE.

The indices of a table are the left hand sides of the operands of a table.

This type does not represent a property.


Example 1

The following table uses identifiers as keys and integers as values:

T := table(a = 1, b = 2, c = 3, d = 4):
testtype(T, Type::TableOfIndex(DOM_IDENT))

Type::TableOfIndex only checks the types of the keys of the table, so the following call returns FALSE:

T := table(a = 1, b = 2, c = 3, d = 4):
testtype(T, Type::TableOfIndex(DOM_INT))

delete T:



Any MuPAD® object


The type of the indices; can be an object of the library Type or one of the possible return values of domtype and type
