How to get the selected variable in the workspace ?

40 views (last 30 days)
Hi ! I want to get the selected variable in the workspace.
I know that openvar function is double-click a variable in the Workspace browser, but I am looking for the simple click function (the selected variable).
Thanks for your help.

No, I don't want to open it in the variable editor
For example, I select variable var1 in my workspace with one click on it. Its name 'var1' now appears in white over blue in the workspace. Then I am looking for the following function:
selected_variable = get_selected_variable_in_workspace_function();
% then I use it like:
plot(selected_variable)
Is it clearer ? Does this get_selected_variable_in_workspace_function exit in Matlab ?

I'm not aware of any such function. However, you can simply drag and drop the variable in the command window.
If it's for plotting only: simply hit the plot button.
