Use Autocomplete

Autocomplete in MATLAB® Mobile™ makes typing easier by suggesting names of functions, methods, keywords, properties, MATLAB objects, files, folders, variables, and structures.

To use autocomplete, enter two or more characters of a term and select an option from the displayed suggestions.

You can:

  • Swipe left or right to scroll through the list.

  • Tap outside of the list to clear the list.

  • Narrow a long list before making a selection, by adding additional characters to your original term.

  • Complete parts of a name that uses dot notation by adding a dot.

For MATLAB Mobile to complete a file or folder name, it must be on the search path or in the current folder. Variables and properties must be in the current workspace.

Case Sensitivity

The autocomplete suggestions that MATLAB Mobile displays depend on whether a term contains upper- or lower-case characters.
