clearInstallationValue

Clear installation value for setting

Description

example

clearInstallationValue(s) clears the installation value for the specified setting. If the installation value is not set or not writeable, MATLAB® throws an error.

Examples

collapse all

Set an installation value for the maximum column width for comments in MATLAB. (Note that this example assumes that installation settings are writable by the user.) Then clear the installation value using the clearInstallationValue function.

Set the installation value for the maximum column width setting to 80. Verify the value has been set. Because there the personal and temporary values are not set, ActiveValue takes its value from InstallationValue.

s = settings;
s.matlab.editor.language.matlab.comments.MaxWidth.InstallationValue = 80;
s.matlab.editor.language.matlab.comments.MaxWidth
ans = 

  Setting 'matlab.editor.language.matlab.comments.MaxWidth' with properties:

          ActiveValue: 80
       TemporaryValue: <no value>
        PersonalValue: <no value>
    InstallationValue: 80
         FactoryValue: 75

Clear InstallationValue. Verify that the active value reverts to the factory value.

clearInstallationValue(s.matlab.editor.language.matlab.comments.MaxWidth)
s.matlab.editor.language.matlab.comments.MaxWidth
ans = 

  Setting 'matlab.editor.language.matlab.comments.MaxWidth' with properties:

          ActiveValue: 75
       TemporaryValue: <no value>
        PersonalValue: <no value>
    InstallationValue: <no value>
         FactoryValue: 75
