Class method names


methods ClassName
m = methods(___)



methods ClassName displays the names of the methods for the class ClassName. If ClassName is a MATLAB® or Java® class, then methods displays only public methods, including those methods inherited from superclasses.


methods(obj) displays the names of the methods for the class of obj.


methods(___,'-full') displays a full description of the methods, including inheritance information and, for MATLAB and Java methods, method attributes and signatures. This function does not remove duplicate method names with different signatures. This option does not work with classes defined before MATLAB 7.6.


m = methods(___) returns the method names in a cell array of character vectors.

Language Dependency

This function does not show generic methods from classes based on the Microsoft® .NET Framework. Use your product documentation to get information on generic methods.

Methods Keyword

The word methods is also a MATLAB class-definition keyword. See classdef for more information on class-definition keywords.

Listed Methods

This function reports the methods from all method directories together and removes all duplicate method names from the list.
