How do you overload the help of a built-in method?

3 views (last 30 days)
I've followed the advice in Matlab's documentation on implementing a custom copy method in some of my classes (overloading the copyElement method). However, it'd be nice to be able to display custom help for the modified method, in order to explain the additional functionality. Of course the matlab.mixin.Copyable.copy method is sealed, so cannot be overwritten. Anyone any ideas?

I think the only thing you can do is document the new behaviour under the class documentation rather than the method documentation.
