            J1939: [1x1 struct]
           Length: 8
          Signals: {2x1 cell}
       SignalInfo: [2x1 struct]

Message ID, specified as a numeric value. id is the numeric identifier of the specified message, in either extended or standard form.

Example: 419364350

Data Types: single | double | int8 | int16 | int32 | int64 | uint8 | uint16 | uint32 | uint64

Message ID format, specified as a logical. Specify whether the message ID is in standard or extended type. Use the logical value true if extended, or false if standard. There is no default; you must provide this argument when using a message ID.
