Validate that setting value is integer array with one element



matlab.settings.mustBeIntegerScalar(settingvalue) issues an error if settingvalue is not an integer array with one element. This function does not return a value.

This function ignores input arguments that are empty values. Therefore, no error is thrown when the setting value is empty.

Create a setting and specify a function to validate that the setting value is an integer scalar.

Create the settings group mysettings.

s = settings;

Add the setting MyIntegerSetting to mysettings and specify the validation function matlab.settings.mustBeIntegerScalar.


Now, test whether the validation function works. Set the value of MyIntegerSetting to a noninteger value. As expected, MATLAB® throws an error.

s.mysettings.MyIntegerSetting.PersonalValue = 'Hello';
Error setting 'MyIntegerSetting' in group 'mysettings': Value must be integer.
