io.reader class

Package: io

Base class used to define custom variable or file reader for Simulation Data Inspector

Description

Use the io.reader base class to specify how to import custom variable and file formats into the Simulation Data Inspector. Write a class definition file that uses the io.reader methods to specify how to extract information like time and data values from the variable or file. Use this syntax as the first line in the class definition file to inherit from the io.reader class, where MyReader is the name of your subclass:

classdef MyReader < io.reader

For an example that shows how to write and use a custom file reader, see Import Data Using a Custom File Reader.

For an example that shows how to write and use a custom workspace data reader, see Import Workspace Variables Using a Custom Data Reader.

The io.reader class is a handle class.
