Call .NET Methods With params Keyword

This example shows how to call methods that use a params keyword in the argument list.

The input argument num in the following paramsTest method is modified by the params keyword.

using System;
namespace netdoc
    public class SampleParamsTest
        //test params keyword
        public int paramsTest(params int[] num)
            int total = 0;
            foreach (int i in num)
                total = total + i;
            return total;

The function signature in MATLAB® is:

Return TypeNameArguments
int32 scalar RetValparamsTest(netdoc.SampleParamsTest this,
System.Int32[] num)

Create an assembly from the SampleParamsTest code, using instructions in Build a .NET Application for MATLAB Examples.

Create an asmpath variable set to the full path to the DLL file, SampleParamsTest.dll, created by your development tool. For example:

asmpath = 'c:\work\Visual Studio 2012\Projects\SampleParamsTest\SampleParamsTest\bin\Debug\';
asmname = 'SampleParamsTest.dll';

Load the assembly.

asm = NET.addAssembly(fullfile(asmpath,asmname));

Call the method.

cls = netdoc.SampleParamsTest;
mat  = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6];
db5 = paramsTest(cls,mat)
db5 =
