Find IDs of states

Since R2023a



    stateIDS = findstate(graph,stateData) finds the state IDs stateIDS of the states specified by stateData, if they exist in the navGraph object graph.

    The function returns stateIDS when all elements of a row of stateData are identical to elements of a row in the States table.

    Load navGraph data for states and links.

    load navGraphData.mat

    Create a table to use to search for the state ID.

    stateData = table([3 6 0.142170047601527; 1 1 1],["F"; "A"],[2; 2], ...

    Find the indices of the states.

    id = findstate(navGraphObj,stateData)
    id = 2×1

    The navGraph states table contains a state corresponding to the first state data, so the function returns its index. However, the states table does not contain a state that corresponds to the second state, so the function returns 0.

    Input Arguments

    collapse all

    Graph object, specified as a navGraph object.

    State data, specified as the names of the states, the state vectors, or a states table.

    Specify the names of the states as a column vector of character vectors, column vector of string scalars, or cell array of character vectors.

    Specify the state vectors as a matrix in which each row represents a state vector. The state vectors must be of the same size as those in the StateVector column of the States table.

    Specify the states table as a table that the same columns as the States table.

    Data Types: single | double | cell | char | string | table

    Output Arguments

    collapse all

    State IDs, returned as a column vector of positive integers. When the function does not find a specified state pair, the value for the corresponding element in stateIDS is 0

    Data Types: double
