Description

example

isenabled = matlab.addons.isAddonEnabled(name) returns true if the add-on with the specified name is enabled. Otherwise, it returns false.

If multiple versions of an add-on are installed, you must specify a version.

example

isenabled = matlab.addons.isAddonEnabled(identifier) returns true if the add-on with the specified identifier is enabled. Otherwise, it returns false.

example

isenabled = matlab.addons.isAddonEnabled(___,version) also specifies the version of the add-on. Use this syntax with any of the arguments in previous syntaxes.

             Name                   Version     Enabled                  Identifier              
    ___________________________    _________    _______    ______________________________________

    "Random File Name Creator"     "1.0"         true      "75442144-f751-4011-bf0e-32b6fb2f1433"

Determine if Random File Name Creator is enabled. MATLAB® confirms that the add-on is enabled.

Suppose that you have versions 2.0 and 4.0 of an add-on called My Toolbox installed on your system. Disable version 4.0 of the add-on and confirm that it is disabled.

Get the list of installed add-ons.

addons = matlab.addons.installedAddons
addons =

  2×4 table

             Name                   Version     Enabled                  Identifier
