How to publish as pdf from command tab

7 views (last 30 days)
I have a function which I am running from command window as follows.
[logical_out, run_time, reaction_time] = reaction_time_function4('alexis', '11-Feb-2022', 'Trial27')
But when I try to save the result as pdf in the command window using
it throws me an error.
data_on_date = sorted_data( == char(day),:);
Basically I have to hard code the function which I want to avoid. (Because it will be more time consuming)
When I try to add the publish command in the function it throws me the same error.
Is there any work around this?

To do this using the publish function use the codeToEvaluate name-value pair argument as shown in the "Generate HTML View of MATLAB function with Input Arguments" example on the publish documentation page.

Thanks for your comment! I almost got what I needed. Although the following code worked, but I am getting too many outputs.
publish('reaction_time_function4.m','codeToEvaluate','[logical_out, run_time, reaction_time] = reaction_time_function4(''alexis'', ''11-Feb-2022'', ''Trial27'');')
I want in pdf format and only 1 .pdf output. How can I do that?

Open the function and go to the publish tab in the toolstrip. From there, click the dropdown under the publish icon for settings. Change the function call in the "MATLAB Expression:" to be: [logical_out, run_time, reaction_time] = reaction_time_function4('alexis', '11-Feb-2022', 'Trial27')
Then hit publish.

Thanks for your comment. But I don't see a 'settings option' under publish dropdown.
By function call in the "MATLAB Expression:" do you mean running command from command window like the image?

Sorry, it's "Options" not settings, the second item in the dropdown. You can also select "PDF" as the output format in there.
