Property grid using JIDE implementation

by

 

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

nestedfetch(obj, name)
% Fetches the value of the named property of an object or structure.
% This function can deal with nested properties.
%
% Input arguments:
% obj:
%    the handle or value object the value should be assigned to
% name:
%    a property name with dot (.) separating property names at
%    different hierarchy levels
% value:
%    the value to assign to the property at the deepest hierarchy
%    level
%
% Example:
%    obj = struct('surface', struct('nested', 23));
%    value = nestedfetch(obj, 'surface.nested');
%    disp(value);  % prints 23
