How can I set the "Prompt location" property of a Simulink.MaskParameter programmatically.

The "promp location" of a mask parameter is available through the mask editor window, but the property is not available in the Simulink.MaskParameter class. How can it be set programmatically?

Mask parameter “Prompt Location” can be set programatically using the command ‘p.DialogControl.PromptLocation
Where p is a mask parameter.
Below is an example code
import Simulink.*;
% give the path of the masked block to the get function
a = Simulink.Mask.get('filename/BlockName);
p = a.Parameters(1);
p has following properties
Type: 'edit'
TypeOptions: {0×1 cell}
Name: 'Parameter2'
Prompt: ''
Value: '0'
Evaluate: 'on'
Tunable: 'on'
NeverSave: 'off'
Hidden: 'off'
ReadOnly: 'off'
Enabled: 'on'
Visible: 'on'
ShowTooltip: 'on'
Callback: ''
Alias: ''
DialogControl: [1×1 Simulink.dialog.parameter.Edit]
ConstraintName: ''
p.DialogControl has properties as follows
Name: 'Parameter2'
PromptLocation: 'left'
Row: 'new'
HorizontalStretch: 'on'
Tooltip: ''

The above answer was provided using MATLAB 2019a.
Seems that such parameter is not available in MATLAB 2017b.
