Property grid using JIDE implementation

by

 

A graphical user control based on the JIDE PropertyGrid that mimics MatLab's property inspector.

javaclass(mtype, ndims)
% Return java.lang.Class instance for MatLab type.
%
% Input arguments:
% mtype:
%    the MatLab name of the type for which to return the java.lang.Class
%    instance
% ndims:
%    the number of dimensions of the MatLab data type
