Query tsdata.event by name


[event,ind] = findEvent(tse,tsename)
[event,ind] = findEvent(tse,tsename,n)


[event,ind] = findEvent(tse,tsename) returns the first tsdata.event object event with the name tsename in an array of tsdata.event objects tse. The output argument ind is the index of tse corresponding to event.


[event,ind] = findEvent(tse,tsename,n) returns the nth tsdata.event object in the array tse and its index.


collapse all

Create a vector containing two tsdata.event objects with the name MyEvent. Find the first event named MyEvent.

tse1 = tsdata.event('MyEvent',1);
tse2 = tsdata.event('MyEvent',2);
tse = [tse1 tse2];
[event1,ind1] = findEvent(tse,'MyEvent');
    EventData: []
         Name: 'MyEvent'
         Time: 1
        Units: 'seconds'
    StartDate: ''
ind1 = 1

Find the second event named MyEvent.

[event2,ind2] = findEvent(tse,'MyEvent',2);
    EventData: []
         Name: 'MyEvent'
         Time: 2
        Units: 'seconds'
    StartDate: ''
ind2 = 2
