actxserver function to create and
manipulate objects from MATLAB® that are exposed in an application that supports Automation. The function
returns a handle to the object's main interface, which you use to
access the object's methods, properties, and events, and any other interfaces it
If your MATLAB program uses a custom control, for example, one that you have created especially for your application, you must register it with the Microsoft® Windows® operating system before you can use it. You can do this from your MATLAB program by issuing an operating system command:
!regsvr32 /s filename.ocx
where filename is the name of the file containing the control. Using this command in your program enables you to provide custom-made controls that you make available to other users by registering the control on their computer when they run your MATLAB program.
