PutWorkspaceData

Data in Automation server workspace

Synopsis

IDL Method Signature

PutWorkspaceData([in] BSTR varname, [in] BSTR workspace,
[in] VARIANT data)

Microsoft Visual Basic Client

PutWorkspaceData(varname As String, workspace As String,
data As Object)

MATLAB Client

PutWorkspaceData(h,'varname','workspace',data)

Description

PutWorkspaceData(h,'varname','workspace',data) stores data in the workspace of the server attached to handle h and assigns it to varname. The values for workspace are base or global.

Use PutWorkspaceData to pass numeric and character array data respectively to the server. Do not use PutWorkspaceData on sparse arrays, structures, or function handles. Use the Execute method for these data types.

The GetWorkspaceData and PutWorkspaceData functions pass numeric data as a variant data type. These functions are especially useful for VBScript clients as VBScript does not support the safearray data type used by GetFullMatrix and PutFullMatrix.

This example creates an array in a Visual Basic .NET application and displays it in MATLAB.

Create a Visual Basic .NET client with the following code.

type putworkspacedata.vb
Dim Matlab As Object 
Dim data(6) As Double 
Dim i As Integer 
Matlab = CreateObject("matlab.application") 
For i = 0 To 6 
    data(i) = i * 15 
Next i 
Matlab.PutWorkspaceData("A", "base", data) 
MsgBox("In MATLAB, type" & vbCrLf & "A")
