Remove custom property from COM object

Syntax

deleteproperty(h,'name')

Description

deleteproperty(h,'name') deletes property specified in string, name, from custom properties belonging to object or interface, h.

You can only delete properties created with the addproperty function.

COM functions are available on Microsoft® Windows® systems only.

Examples

This example removes a custom property from an instance of the MATLAB® sample control.

  1. Create an instance of the control:

    f = figure('position',[100 200 200 200]);
    h = actxcontrol('mwsamp.mwsampctrl.2',[0 0 200 200],f);
    get(h)
    
         Label: 'Label'
        Radius: 20
    

    MATLAB also displays interfaces.

  2. Add a custom property named Position and assign a value:

    addproperty(h,'Position');
    h.Position = [200 120];
    get(h)
    
           Label: 'Label'
          Radius: 20
        Position: [200 120]
  3. Delete the custom property Position:

    deleteproperty(h,'Position');
    get(h)
    
         Label: 'Label'
        Radius: 20

    MATLAB displays the original list of properties:
