How to remove struct fields of a specific type

18 visualizzazioni (ultimi 30 giorni)
I have a struct that contains data of various formats including further structs and instances of class objects. I would like to remove all fields that are of a specific type without needing to use their field names.
For example, the trackingScenario struct contains a varying number of "Tracker" objects that I would like to remove if desired. I have posted an example of the struct below.
struct with fields:
configData: [1×1 struct]
simulation: [1×1 struct]
Platform_1: [1×1 struct]
Platform_2: [1×1 struct]
Platform_3: [1×1 struct]
Platform_4: [1×1 struct]
Target_1: [1×1 struct]
Target_2: [1×1 struct]
new_test_tracker2: [1×1 Tracker]
The desired output would be the struct without the "Tracker" field. This has stumped me so thanks in advance!

The function class can be used in a loop over the fieldnames to identify the fields to be removed with rmfield.
s.w = int32(0);
s.x = 1;
s.y = 2;
s.z = int32(3);
s = struct with fields:
w: 0 x: 1 y: 2 z: 3
% remove the int32 fields
fnames = fieldnames(s);
for ii = 1:numel(fnames)
if string(class(s.(fnames{ii}))) == "int32"
s = rmfield(s,fnames{ii});
s = struct with fields:
x: 1 y: 2
The function isa might also do the job of identifying the field to be removed, depending on the class hierarchy and if you want to remove objects basedon their superclass.

You can use the rmfield function to remove a specified field from structure array.
