Why do I get "No method 'reqMktDataEx' with matching signature found for class 'COM.TWS_TwsCtrl_1'." in 2014a

2 views (last 30 days)
When I try to use the 'ibtws' class in MATLAB R2013b to access data from the Interactive Brokers (IB) Trader Workstation , for instance if I am trying to run the example function 'reqMktDataEx', I get the following error:
No method 'reqMktDataEx' with matching signature found for class 'COM.TWS_TwsCtrl_1'.
My code is as follows, how can I fix this?
ib = ibtws('',7496);
eventNames = {'errMsg','tickSize','tickString','tickPrice'};
for i = 1:length(eventNames)
f = findobj('Tag','IBStreamingDataWorkflow');
if isempty(f)
f = figure('Tag','IBStreamingDataWorkflow','MenuBar','none',...
pos = get(f,'Position');
set(f,'Position',[pos(1) pos(2) pos(3)+37 109])
colnames = {'Trade' 'Size' 'Bid' 'BidSize' 'Ask' 'AskSize' ...
'Total Volume'};
rownames = {'AAA','BBB','DDDD'};
data = cell(3,6);
'Position',[10 30 582 76],'Tag','SecurityDataTable');
uicontrol('Style','text','Position',[10 5 497 20],'Tag','IBMessage');
'Position',[512 5 80 20]);
ibContract = ib.Handle.createContract;
ibContract.symbol = 'IBM';
ibContract.secType = 'STK';
ibContract.exchange = 'SMART';
ibContract.currency = 'USD';

I think you missed to install something. The steps you need to take are
1) Download/Install Interactive Brokers Trader Workstation (Desktop Trading Client) from the following link: https://www.interactivebrokers.com/en/index.php?f=552
2) Download/Install the Interactive Brokers API software from the following link:
3) Log into IB Trader Workstation with a license user account.

This answer is wrong. It's a version change issue. This function needs an additional argument.
reqMktDataEx(IB.Handle, 3, ibContract,'100',0,IB.Handle.createTagValueList);
Your answer is wrong, unfortunately.

You may wish to try the cross-platform IB-Matlab product, which is Java-based (not ActiveX):
IB-Matlab doesn't have such bugs, it is very reliable.
