Hi,
I found a workaround for this... I changed the loading string in the CMatlabEngine.cpp to:
CLSID clsid;
if (bDedicated)
m_hr=::CLSIDFromProgID(OLESTR("Matlab.Application.Single.7"), &clsid);
else
m_hr=::CLSIDFromProgID(OLESTR("Matlab.Application.7"), &clsid);
if (FAILED(m_hr))
return;
It's working on my side!

Hi,
I'm calling the function SetMatrix(..) with vector that contain 3x3 matrix with the values: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9.
But the line after I called SetMatrix(..), I call the function GetMatrix(..). The vector that I get contains the values: 1,4,7,2,5,8,3,6,9.
I other word the rows and the columns are replaced.
Any idea why?
Thanks,
Gal





sir thank u for u r responce
just iam using matlab as addin
i wrote some m file and iam adding that to my mfc application
when i add some more files
it is throwing this error
iam copied output window appwizard
this is message

thank u very mush ir if u don't if u have any fir filter any filter with mfc pls send me it's very urgent for me.iam new to matalab and no time to read full math work and design so if u don't mind pls one fir filter using vc++ code i need .
thank u very much
have a nice day





This article has nothing to do with the Matlab addin. Sorry.

sir
when iam using matlab
in vc++ it is throwing this error
iam new to matlab so i am unable to find why this error is coming
when i compile it is giving this

kindly suggest me solution

Sir,
I don't understand this error message. You should not be compiling .m files using the MatlabEngine ??? Are you trying to do .mex files ?
ps: Please encapsulate your error message in pre tags and do a full cutandpaste of the compilation log!

Hello! I'm soo happy there is code to make it able to run Matlab from C++.
I'm having a camera with a C++ program. I need to do things to my cameraimages and find it easiest to do it in Matlab. So I've understood that in my C++ code I could just add the MatlabEngine.h and .cpp files (and StdAfx files) to my project, include MatlabEngine.h to my C++ code, initialize and unitialize the engine and inbetween perform whatever I like to perform, correct?
My problem is that if I only do CoInitialize(NULL), then Matlab doesn't get initialized, so if I add "mt=new CMatlabEngine;" then my program warns me saying that I bool to false or true, but I can run the program, just not perform anything if I would like to. What can I have missed?
[ONE HOUR LATER: I took out CoInitialize(NULL) and now I could run PutString(). So is it good enough just having "mt=new CMatlabEngine;" to initialize Matlab?]
I can run the demo without problems, BUT you have written "/TODO: Place code here" in int APIENTRY WinMain(..) in the MatlabEngineDemo.cpp file, and I understood that line as to write some code afterwards, and I tried it, but with no results at all. I added the three lines for PutString as you have later on. What's the meaning here? should I add code or not and what kind of code could I add?
Merci bcp

This should be sufficient. You don't need to call CoInitialize(NULL) if the COM interface is already initialized. Note that are not obliged to allocated dynamically CMatlabEngine.
astridwahlin wrote:
"/TODO: Place code here"
This is generated by the MFC wizard. You should modify the code at this point but add new code in the WndProc function.
Don't bother about modifying the demo version (which is for demonstration), I advise you to create a new console application and start from scratch: create an empty console project, follow the article for that.

I integrated this class into a simulator that makes many calls to the CMatlabEngine::Execute() function.
Memory usage of the program increased tremendously.
I think that this is caused by m_vResult, which gets the return value from matlab.
This variable is also used in IsVisible() and GetString().
Must it be explicitly freed before reusing (I'm not too familiar with VARIANT types)?





This is what I did to solve the memory leaks, but I haven't debugged this much to see if it causes any damage:
In MatlabEngine.h, I added a protected method:
void FreeResult();
In MatlabEngine.cpp I made the following changes:
In the constructor, added:
m_vResult.bstrVal = NULL;
Before every call to
m_pMtlbDispApp >Invoke(..., &m_vResult, ...)
(there are three such calls, in Execute(), IsVisible() and GetString())
I added:
FreeResult();
At the end of the file I added:
void CMatlabEngine::FreeResult()
{
if (m_vResult.vt == VT_BSTR) {
::SysFreeString(m_vResult.bstrVal);
m_vResult.bstrVal = NULL;
}
}
I would be happy to hear any remarks  if there is anything else that must be checked before freeing the result, or if there is anything else to initialize.
Hope this helps more than it hurts,
 Arnon





I'll have look.

It seems like there are two small bugs in the error handler:
1. ::_tprintf should be ::_stprintf (lines 136 and 155), otherwise, the error strings errMsg and extMess are left as garbage.
2. errDesc is used without being set (line 138).
Where can you find the description of the error message?
Thanks,
 Arnon





I made some changes to the error handler so that I could see a description of the MATLAB errors that I get. Here is my modified version of ErrHandler:
void CMatlabEngine::ErrHandler(HRESULT hr, EXCEPINFO excep, UINT uArgErr)
{
USES_CONVERSION;
if (hr == DISP_E_EXCEPTION)
{
TCHAR errMsg[512];
::_stprintf(errMsg, TEXT("Runtime error %d:\n\n %s"),
excep.scode & 0x0000FFFF, OLE2T(excep.bstrDescription)); ::MessageBox(NULL, errMsg, TEXT("MATLAB Error"),
MB_SETFOREGROUND  MB_OK);
}
else
{
LPVOID lpMsgBuf;
::FormatMessage(FORMAT_MESSAGE_ALLOCATE_BUFFER 
FORMAT_MESSAGE_FROM_SYSTEM 
FORMAT_MESSAGE_IGNORE_INSERTS, NULL, hr,
MAKELANGID(LANG_NEUTRAL,
SUBLANG_DEFAULT),(LPTSTR) &lpMsgBuf,
0, NULL);
if ((hr == DISP_E_TYPEMISMATCH ) 
(hr == DISP_E_PARAMNOTFOUND))
{
TCHAR extMess[512];
::_stprintf(extMess, TEXT("%s Position of incorrect argument is %u.\n"), (LPCTSTR) lpMsgBuf, uArgErr);
::MessageBox(NULL, extMess, TEXT("COM Error"), MB_OK  MB_SETFOREGROUND);
}
else
{
::MessageBox(NULL, (LPCTSTR)lpMsgBuf, TEXT("COM Error"),MB_OK  MB_SETFOREGROUND);
}
::LocalFree(lpMsgBuf);
}
}
You must also add the following line to MatlabEngine.cpp:
#include <atlbase.h> // Allows converting BSTR to normal strings





Thank you for the fix. I'll post an update of the source but it will take time to get to CP.
Jonathan de Halleux.





Thanks for this simple and very useful class.
The beautifully formatted doxygen documentation could be used as a reference for most programmers to learn from...
One small issue and one question:
In the article, you recommend checking IsInitialized() after instantiating the class, but you don't do this in the demo code.
And for the question:
We have a limited number of licenses at work. When you open matlab but can't get a license, you get a fatal error message box, and after you close it, matlab closes. Unfortunately, IsInitialized() returns true even when a license wasn't acquired. Is there any way to make sure that the app was really opened?





This is what I added to the demo code in InitInstance:
glob_pMatlab = new CMatlabEngine;
if (!glob_pMatlab>IsInitialized()) {
::MessageBox(NULL,"Can't initialize MATLAB","Fatal Error!",MB_OK);
return FALSE;
}






Is the sample available in C#?
This sample works, but when I add the Reference in a Project and call mlapp.Execute("..."); I get the exception QueryInterface for interface MLapp.DIMLapp failed.
Why?

I am working with an experimental platform and filtering is one of the applications of it.
What i am looking for,is to get my matlab plot function when i run the code,after i have done suitable routine and created libraries( you are the specialist).
I hope i'am not too confusing.Please let me know if you need more explanation,or i can send you my code to check if you have some time.
From you name,i can deduce you might be a french speaker
Thx

Yes indeed.

Hello,
Here is my problem; i have a working program in matlab,say a filter. I have a ready made program in VC++ .What i want to do is to call and display my matlab filter in the VC++ code without actually opening a matlab window.
Is this possible with you theory?
I tried the source code, but there seems to be a problem, i keep having errors.
Help please
F.K

If you don't give more details, I can't do much. Moreover, I've unsinstalled matlab so I won't be of any help.

Hello,
For the sample program to be provided, could you please indicate which header files and libraries( and their path as well) have to be included in order for the program to be compiled properly?
F.K





The files provided in the "source file" zip.
Jonathan de Halleux.





Hi again,
My question may sound silly,i am new in this. What is the relation ship between your theory and the matlab engine? What i mean is i can not see the C engine routine in your code.
Could you please provide sample of working code with your approach of the problem?
Thx
F.K





There is no C engine with my appraoch, the code is in C++.
I'm using the matlab engine through it's COM interface, without using the mx functions.
I cannot give a working example, check the demo.

Hi,
I am a beginner in this. I know a little about Matlab and not much about VC++.
I would like to call matlab functions from C.
Can somebody give me the exat syntax of mxCreateCharArray?
I mean like an example with specific values of argument ndim and const int *dims.
#include "matrix.h"
mxArray *mxCreateCharArray(int ndim, const int *dims);
The same for mxCreateDoublematrix,mxCreateString etc...
Thx
F.K





I designed this ActiveX module to avoid mx functions... Sorry can't help on that.

In documentation you told that GetString allocate memory for the returned value and the user hould take care of clearing the memory. I look at the demo code. it seems there isn't such code in the sample. As i wrong
If you look deeper at the end of GetString you see
{
_bstr_t s(m_vResult);
szString=new TCHAR[s.length()+1];
_tcscpy( szString, (LPCTSTR)s);
}
That's where the copy arises...

i posted this in the visual c++ forum:
hello @all,
i need an instruction which waits until MATLAB will finish it's job.
earlier forum question:
hello @all,
i try to explain what i want / must do :
i have something like this:
i=0;
while(i<5)
{
// reading out a com
// get datasets and process them
// send the processed datasets to MATLAB to get a diagram
// the diagram is seen in my mfcprogram (but came from matlab)
i++;
}
the only problem is the while loop. without these, the program part runs perfectly. however i need a while loop or something like that.
i think, the problem lie in the fact that the program sends the data to matlab and then directly in the code continues to go. possibly different processes run off parallel.
i think i must have something that waits so long, till matlab is ready with the diagram (i tried Sleep(1000) but it do not work).
maybe somebody know, if matlab has got a 'instruction' or if i can make something like a 'queue'.
thank you very much

i hope you can help me......

I have been uisng the Matlab engine DLL interface.
Why is it better to use the ActiveX interface?
Are ther any new APIs.
Yosi





I do not pretend this wrapper is better that the engine DLL. Maybe the text of the article is badly written. In fact, the engine dll has more feature that the COM component: eng..., mat... functions, etc...
However, when using the engine dll or mat dll, you link your project with the right libraries and compile it with some Matlab "mex.bat" file. With the COM interface, you don't need to know all that...

It is a nice idea to ve a backend Matlab Server, this will ease debuging and avoiding dll problems, besides that u can write pure matlab code rather than using nonfriendly interfaces between primitive types in C/C++ and Matlab . U can also view and process all ur matrices in matlab command window;P.





I have compiled the code in VC++ 6.0 but none of the menu examples work (with Matlab 12). I am trying to use this to write a universal fuzzy logic translator to go from MATLAB .fis files to VC++ executable, but I am having problems understanding the code...any help would be appreciated.
I code so i can frag!





That's strange. Did you initialize COM ? (Coinitialize)
Where's the error ? Does it find the matlab.application ?
If you want help, you better give more details about the bug...

I am sorry, now that I read the post again, I believe it was quite rude. Yours is a very nice piece of code and I would like to thank you for your wonderful work.
I am trying to get VC++ to make 2 calls to MAtlab and output the result in a dialog in my VC++ window. I have initialized COM as public in my project file, included MatlabEngine.h and made MatlabEngine.cpp in the project. Here are a couple of lines of code from my program.
void CDemoDlg::OnOK()
{ UpdateData();
CMatlabEngine matlab;
matlab.Execute(_T("fismat=readfis('invpen#2.fis')"));
matlab.Execute(_T("evalfis([0.1;0.3],fismat)"));
m_strforce = matlab.GetResult();
//m_strforce = matlab.Execute(_T("out=evalfis([0.2;0.5],fismat)"));
UpdateData(FALSE); }
m_strforce is of type CString and is the variable assigned to the answer box in my form. I get an MFC error from windows when I run the program with the comments. If i assign m_strforce to matlab.Execute, then I get an answer of 1, no matter what. The fis system calculates a force depending on the two input factors. I believe my confusion comes from the lack of knowledge of COM programming, but if you see any glaring ways to solve this, please le me know.
Thanks again and keep it up!

You are confused about the use GetResult. GetResult returns a COM status message but has nothing to do with Matlab "ans". I advise you to read a little bit about HRESULT to get deeper understanding.
To retreive data from Matlab, you must use GetMatrix or GetString. In your case if evalfis returns a vector or a matrix, use the following to retreive out:
HRESULT hr;
vector out;
UINT m,n;
hr=matlab.GetMatrix( _T("out"), m,n,out);$
if (FAILED(hr))
// something wrong happened... call GetLastErrorMessage to have the error message
matlab.GetLastErrorMessage();
If out is a string, use GetString:
hr=matlab.GetString(_T("out"), m_strForce);
if (FAILED(hr))
// something wrong happened... call GetLastErrorMessage to have the error message
matlab.GetLastErrorMessage();

Hi,
First, thanks a lot for your class.
but I found a bug in the demo application. the lines:
.
.
.
break;
case WM_PAINT: < THIS
break; < WITH THIS ONE
case WM_DESTROY:
PostQuitMessage(0);
break; .
.
.
They are eating 100% of CPU. I think that they aren´t neccesary.
The other thing is that I have Matlab 5.2 and it still doesn´t work the GetMatrix method (I receive an Automation server error). Has anybody found a solution for this?
Thanks in advance.





Did you try the latest update ?
Does someone with the 5.2 tried the class ? I have 6.1, so I can't help you
Jonathan de Halleux, Belgium.





Thanks for your reply Jonathan.
Yes, I´m using the last update.
Just waiting to know if someone else has found the same problem with Matlab V5.2.
Thanks in advance.





If there is one instance of Matlab already running, is there a way to retrieve a matrix from that instance? CMatlabEngine creates a new instance of Matlab so data contained in the other instance is not available. Are you aware of any workaround to this problem?
Anyway, thanks for providing us with such a great article
Keep up the good work!

 If it is a classical instance of Matlab running then the answer is no. You cannot connect to this instance by the COM interface. This is documented somewhere but I forgot where. I see a few workaround:
 Save the workspace or only the matrix to a file and load it using Execute.
 Pass the matrix by the clipboard, this needs to be implemented...
 If the instance of Matlab has been started as a COM server, then normally you are working with the same server, so you should have access to this matrix... Of course I didn't check it

Yep, I tried it and it does work as expected
