Warning: Editor is not serializable

8 views (last 30 days)
I run the following code to get current state of Editor
X = matlab.desktop.editor.getAll;
Then I save the variable X.
I get following warning
Warning: com.mathworks.mde.editor.MatlabEditor@73877e19 is not serializable
and X variable is saved with properties having no values.
How can I save X variable with values.

you may automate this using the following simple script:
x=matlab.desktop.editor.getAll;
theScriptList={};
for i=1:1:size(x,2)
theScriptList=[theScriptList; {x(1,i).Filename} {x(1,i).Text}];
% suppose you want to save these 2 items
end
clearvars -except theScriptList
% now save the workspace

You cannot. The editor state refers to a number of dynamic Java objects, some of which have no ability to save and restore. For example some of them refer to Windows HWND which are transient data structures with internal resource pointers.
