How to Convert Cell Array contents to look like they do when I OPEN the variable it the MatLab Variable Viewer

1 visualización (últimos 30 días)
I've got a cell array, TheDatabaseInfo, that I'm trying to load into a UITABLE (in the 'Data' portion of the call) but I'm getting an error because some of the elements of the cell array are multi-dimensional. In the example show here, element 16 is a vertical array [0;8;0;0] and, so, the UITABLE operation fails.
My ideal solution would be to alter the cell array so that it looks just like it does when I view the contents in the MatLab Variable Viewer (see image). For example, replace element 16 with a string '[0;8;0;0]'. And, of course, do that with any other cell array elements that could cause an error when creating my table.
Any ideas?

You can convert the elements of the array manually:
Data = {1, [1;2;3;4], 1:2, 'String', {'cell'}};
S = cell(size(Data));
for k = 1:numel(Data)
C = Data{k};
if isnumeric(C)
if length(C) == 1
S{k} = sprintf('%g', C);
elseif isvector(C)
if length(C) < 4 % For example
if size(C, 1) == 1
S{k} = ['[', sprintf('%g,', C(1:end-1)), sprintf('%g]', C(end))];
S{k} = ['[', sprintf('%g;', C(1:end-1)), sprintf('%g]', C(end))];
elseif ischar(C)
S{k} = C;
elseif iscell(C)
tmp = sprintf('%d,', size(C));
S{k} = ['{', tmp(1:end-2), '} cell'];
if isempty(S{k}) % Fallback if other methods did not match:
tmp = sprintf('%d,', size(C));
S{k} = ['[', tmp(1:end-2), '] ', class(C)];
This can be improved in a lot of ways: Shorten too long outputs, explicit output of short cell strings, include the type of integer classes, flexible display of digits after the decimal point for floating point values, etc.

Thanks Jan, That worked GREAT!
