Updated 3 Sep 2013

Creates overview of all functions, subfunctions or methods of the currently edited function or class file. For script files the section headlines are drawn. For that, a list below the document bar is generated, which refresh’s automatically while you are typing.

It only works if the position of the document bar is on the right or left side of the editor.

The list of functions is sortable and can be used for navigation. It should help to keep the overview in large projects or class files.
Mouseover gives information about in- and output arguments of the functions and methods.

Furthermore an instance of the currently edited class file is generated in the base workspace, if the constructor can be called with no arguments.
Names of instances are: this, obj (change createInstance_, if necessary)

Please report all bugs found.

If you like the plugin, add 'embeddedmethodsviewer' to your 'startup.m' file

Many thanks to Yair Altman for providing findjobj.

In most cases function needs 'findjobj' from matlabcentral.com:
