You can package MATLAB® files to create a toolbox to share with others. These files can
include MATLAB code, data, apps, examples, and documentation. When you create a
toolbox, MATLAB generates a single installation file (
that enables you or others to install your toolbox.
|Package toolbox project|
|Query or modify version of toolbox|
|Install toolbox file|
|Return information about installed toolboxes|
|Add new factory settings group|
|Add new factory setting|
|Validate that setting value is a logical scalar|
|Validate that setting value is a numeric scalar|
|Validate that setting value is a string scalar|
|Validate that setting value is an integer scalar|
|Version-specific changes in factory settings tree of toolbox|
|Record move or rename of factory setting or group|
|Record removal of factory setting or group|
|Load or reload factory settings|
|Results of upgrading personal settings of toolbox for specific version|
|Group of factory settings and factory subgroup objects|
|Factory settings object|
|Results of upgrading toolbox with specific version number|
|Exception that occurs when upgrading toolbox|
|Results of upgrade operations|
|Status of individual operation when upgrading toolbox|
You can package MATLAB files to create a single installation file to share with others. These files can include MATLAB code, data, apps, examples, and documentation.
Help text appears in the Command Window when you use the
help function. Create help text for your program by
inserting comments at the beginning.
To determine which of your programs files have help text, you can generate a Help Report.
To customize code suggestions and completions for your functions, provide MATLAB with information about your function signatures.
If you create a toolbox that works with MathWorks® products, you can include custom documentation that is viewable in the MATLAB Help browser. Custom documentation can include figures, diagrams, screen captures, equations, and formatting to make your toolbox help more usable.
Display examples such as videos, published program scripts, or other files that illustrate the use of your programs in the MATLAB help browser.
Determine which functions and scripts your program is dependent upon.
Create factory settings that can be used to customize the appearance and behavior of the toolbox after installation.
