Hi, I am so new to matlab. How to load the simbiology project objects and children into matlab workspace? I have tried to use sbioloadproject (filename, modelObj); cs = getconfigset(modelObj); but it just load the model object but not the properties inside the project.
What I need now is to automatically run the *.m file that could load and run the *.sbproj and finally obtain the graph result from the *.sbproj without manually run the *.sbproj file. Due to some none imported properties in the *.sbproj into workspace, the graph plotting had given an error, which make the graph could not be plotted. Hope somebody could show the correct way of doing it. Thanks.

Hi Zetty,
It's difficult for us to help you without more information. What version of MATLAB are you using? What is the exact error you are getting? Can you attach the files that you are talking about (the .m and .sbproj files)?

Hi Arthur. I am using MATLAB R2013b. The error received is 'undefined functions or variable t' where the 't' is a variable that is available in the .sbproj file. This is the link to the dropbox containing the .m and .sbproj files. I don't know what is wrong with it. Really hope you could help. Thanks!

Hello Zetty,
in your code you are using the line
simData = sbiosimulate(m1, cs, Dose) ;
This way you create a SimData object which contains the simulation results. If you want to plot the results against time using this object, please use the "sbioplot" command
If you want to have the vector with time points and the matrix with the simulation results directly you can use the following syntax
[t, x, names] = sbiosimulate(m1, cs, Dose) ;
You can find further information regarding this topic here: web(fullfile(docroot, 'simbio/ref/sbiosimulate.html'))

You are welcome. Btw. you know that you can also contact technical support for questions like yours, right?

Really?? I didn't know that. How to know the type of questions that we can ask the technical support?
Update: I just found the page. Will try to use that facility after this. You have been very helpful. Thanks for informing!

You are welcome. You need a license with current maintenance which many companies and universities have.
