Remove fields from header field array


fields = removeFields(fields,ids) removes all header fields matching ids and returns the updated array.

Input Arguments

expand all

Header fields, specified as an array of objects.

Names to match, specified as one of the following.

  • String vector, character vector, cell array of character vectors, or comma-separated list of strings or character vectors containing the names of the fields to remove. Names are not case-sensitive.

  • Vector or comma-separated list of one or more HeaderField objects whose Name properties are used to determine which fields to remove. Names are not case-sensitive. Header field values are ignored.

  • Vector or comma-separated list of matlab.metadata.Class objects that are subclasses of HeaderField.

    The removeFields method searches for names that match names supported by the specified classes, regardless of the class. If a subclass does not have a specific set of supported names, all header fields of that subclass are matched regardless of their names. Call the HeaderField.displaySubclasses method to see supported names.
