Display format for nonscalar objects




displayNonScalarObject(obj) is called by the disp method when obj is nonscalar (prod(size(obj)) > 1). Override this method to customize the display of a nonscalar object array.

The default display of a nonscalar object array consists of a header and a list of property names. The header shows the dimensions of the object array. The properties appear in the order defined in the class definition. displayNonScalarObject shows only those properties with GetAccess set to public and Hidden set to false.

Input Arguments
