actxcontrollist

List currently installed Microsoft ActiveX controls

Syntax

info = actxcontrollist

Description

info = actxcontrollist returns a list of controls in info, a 1-by-3 cell array containing the name, programmatic identifier (ProgID), and file name for the control. Each control has one row, which MATLAB® software sorts by file name.

COM functions are available on Microsoft® Windows® systems only.

Examples

Show information for two controls:

list = actxcontrollist;
for k = 1:2
  sprintf(' Name = %s\n ProgID = %s\n File = %s\n', list{k,:})
end

MATLAB displays information like:

ans =
  Name = Calendar Control 11.0
  ProgID = MSCAL.Calendar.7
  File = C:\Program Files\MSOffice\OFFICE11\MSCAL.OCX

ans =
  Name = CTreeView Control
  ProgID = CTREEVIEW.CTreeViewCtrl.1
  File = C:\WINNT\system32\dmocx.dll
