    This example shows how to create a view and apply it to the Requirements Editor and Requirements Perspective.

    Open the myAddRequirements requirement set, which contains requirements with Type set to Functional.

    rs = slreq.open("myAddRequirements");

    Create a view with the name NewView.

    myView = slreq.View.create("NewView")
    myView = 
      View with properties:
    
              Name: 'NewView'
         ReqFilter: ''
        LinkFilter: ''
              Host: ''
    
    

    Set the requirement filter to only display requirements that have Type set to Container.

    myView.ReqFilter = "{'ReqType','Container'};"
    myView = 
      View with properties:
    
              Name: 'NewView'
         ReqFilter: "{'ReqType','Container'};"
        LinkFilter: ''
              Host: ''
    
    

    Check if the view is valid.

    tf = isValid(myView)
    tf = logical
       1
    
    

    Apply the view to the Requirements Editor and Requirements Perspective.

    activate(myView)

    Confirm that the active view is NewView.

    appliedView = slreq.View.getActiveView
    appliedView = 
      View with properties:
    
              Name: 'NewView'
         ReqFilter: "{'ReqType','Container'};"
        LinkFilter: ''
              Host: ''
    
    

    The myAddRequirements requirement set does not contain any requirements with Type set to Container, so all of the requirements are filtered out.

    Clear the loaded requirement sets and link sets and close the Requirements Editor.

    slreq.clear;

    This example shows how to create a view and store it in a requirement set.

    Load and open the myAddRequirements requirement set.

    rs = slreq.open("myAddRequirements");

    Create a view and store it in the requirement set.

    myView = slreq.View.create("NewView","myAddRequirements");

    Clear the loaded requirement sets and close the Requirements Editor.

    slreq.clear;

    This example shows how to create a copy of an existing view.

    Load the myAddRequirements requirement set.

    rs = slreq.open("myAddRequirements");

    Load the view settings file ViewFile2.mat, which contains a view stored in the preferences folder.

    slreq.importViewSettings("ViewFile2")

    Get the existing views from the view settings file.

    views = slreq.View.getViews
    views=1×2 object
      1×2 View array with properties:
    
        Name
        ReqFilter
        LinkFilter
        Host
    
    

    Assign the second view in the array to a variable.

    viewToCopy = views(2)
    viewToCopy = 
      View with properties:
    
              Name: 'NewView'
         ReqFilter: '{'ReqType','Container'};'
        LinkFilter: ''
              Host: ''
    
    

    Create a copy of the view and store it in the requirement set.

    copiedView = slreq.View.create("CopiedView","myAddRequirements",viewToCopy);

    Clear the loaded requirement sets and close the Requirements Editor.

    slreq.clear;
