How to assign new data to previous Centroid using K-means

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.
I have written the following code. Now, i am going to apply on new incoming dataset.
for example one data come then i applied K-means, the output is save and the second data come the algorithm check if it belong to that centroid it assign that data to that centroid.
How can i modified the code for new incoming dataset.
%Find the Optimal Clusters for this dataset
eva = evalclusters(dataset1,'kmeans','silhouette','KList',[1:10])
%Apply Kmeans to the dataset with Optimal Clusters K
[idx,C,sumdist] = kmeans(dataset,K,'Display','final','Replicates',5);
%Plot the Clusters
legend('Cluster 1','Cluster 2','Cluster 3','Cluster 4','Cluster 5','Cluster Centroid')

Maybe you can just find the distances of all points in your training set from their centroids. Then, for your second set, compute the distances of each point to each of the centroids. Whichever centriod the point is closest to is the cluster it belongs to. You could also use knnsearch for that.
