It sounds as if the function is defined inside the mlx and you are trying to call it from outside the mlx. That is not possible.
You can only call a function defined within a different m or mlx file under one of the following circumstances:
  • there is a m file or mlx file named the same thing as the function being called;
  • or you can reach a function handle for the function and the handle that was created inside the m or mlx file;
  • or the function being called is a static function defined by a loaded class;
  • or the function being called is a method function of a class and an object of the class is being operated on
Otherwise functions defined inside m or mlx files that are not the first thing in the file are considered private and cannot be accessed from outside.
