Class: dynamicprops

Add dynamic property

Syntax

P = addprop(A,PropertyName)

Description

example

P = addprop(A,PropertyName) adds a property named PropName to each object in array A. The output argument P is an array of meta.DynamicProperty objects that is the same size as A.

Dynamic properties exist only on the specific instance for which they are defined. Dynamic properties do not become part of the class definition.

You can add dynamic properties only to objects derived from the dynamicprops class. Access the data in dynamic properties using the instance variable and the property name (obj.PropertyName).

Input Arguments

Data Types: char | string

Output Arguments
