Class: matlab.engine.FutureResult
Namespace: matlab.engine

Result of asynchronous call to MATLAB function from Python


ret = FutureResult.result(timeout=None)


ret = FutureResult.result(timeout=None) returns the actual result of a call to a MATLAB® function called asynchronously from Python®.

Input Arguments

expand all

Timeout value in seconds, specified as Python data type float, to wait for result of the function call. If timeout = None, the FutureResult.result function waits until the function call finishes, and then returns the result.

Output Arguments

Call the MATLAB sqrt function from Python. Set background to True and get the square root from the FutureResult object.

import matlab.engine
eng = matlab.engine.start_matlab()
future = eng.sqrt(4.0,background=True)
ret = future.result()
