Load an existing label definitions table into the workspace.

load('sublabelDefsTable.mat')

Create a label definition creator object from the the label definitions table.

ldc = labelDefinitionCreator(labelDefs)
ldc = 
labelDefinitionCreator contains the following labels:

	Car with 1 sublabels and 0 attributes.	(info)
	TrafficLight with 2 sublabels and 0 attributes.	(info)

For more details about attributes and sublabels, use the info method.

Add attribute "Color" to the label "Car". Specify the attribute type as a string with value 'Red'.

addAttribute(ldc,'Car','Color',attributeType.String,'Red')

Display information about the sublabels under the label "TrafficLight".

info(ldc,'TrafficLight')
           Name: "TrafficLight"
           Type: Rectangle
     Attributes: []
      Sublabels: ["RedLight"    "GreenLight"]
    Description: 'Bounding boxes for traffic light'

Add attribute "IsOn" to the label "TrafficLight/RedLight". Specify the attribute type as logical with value true.

addAttribute(ldc,'TrafficLight/RedLight','IsOn','logical',true)

Display the details of the label definition creator object.

ldc
ldc = 
labelDefinitionCreator contains the following labels:

	Car with 1 sublabels and 1 attributes.	(info)
	TrafficLight with 2 sublabels and 0 attributes.	(info)

For more details about attributes and sublabels, use the info method.

Display information about the attributes under the label "Car" using the info object function.

info(ldc,'Car')
           Name: "Car"
           Type: Rectangle
     Attributes: "Color"
      Sublabels: "Light"
    Description: 'Bounding box for vehicle'

Display information about the attributes for sublabel "RedLight" under the label "TrafficLight" using the info object function.

info(ldc,'TrafficLight/RedLight')
           Name: "RedLight"
           Type: Rectangle
     Attributes: "IsOn"
      Sublabels: []

Input Arguments

Label definition creator, specified as a labelDefinitionCreator object.

Label or sublabel name, specified as a character vector or string scalar that uniquely identifies the label or sublabel to which the attribute is to be added.

  • To specify a label, use the form 'labelName'.

  • To specify a sublabel, use the form 'labelName/sublabelName'. In this case, the attribute associates to the sublabel.

Attribute name, specified as a character vector or string scalar that identifies the attribute to be added to the label or sublabel.

Type of attribute, specified as one of these values:

  • attributeType enumeration — The type of attribute must be one of these enumerators in attributeType enumeration: Numeric, Logical, String, or List.

Example: addAttribute(ldc,'Car','Color',attributeType.String,'Red');

  • Character vector or string scalar — This value must partially or fully match one of the enumerators in attributeType enumeration.

Example: addAttribute(ldc,'Car','Color','Str','Red');

Default value of the attribute, specified as one of these values:

  • Numeric scalar — Specify this value when typeOfAttribute is Numeric.

  • Logical scalar — Specify this value when typeOfAttribute is Logical.

  • Character vector or string scalar — Specify this value when typeOfAttribute is String.

  • Cell array of character vectors or cell array of string scalars — Specify this value when typeOfAttribute is List.

Name-Value Pair Arguments

Specify optional comma-separated pairs of Name,Value arguments. Name is the argument name and Value is the corresponding value. Name must appear inside quotes. You can specify several name and value pair arguments in any order as Name1,Value1,...,NameN,ValueN.

Example: addAttribute(ldc,'Car/Wheel','Outsidediameter',attributeType.Numeric,740,'Description','Outside diameter in mm');

Attribute description, specified as a comma-separated pair consisting of 'Description' and a character vector or string scalar. Use this name-value pair to describe the attribute.
