Package: matlab.io.datastore

Validate output location

Syntax

location = validateOutputLocation(ds,location)

Description

location = validateOutputLocation(ds,location) returns a validated string that can be used to write datastore files to the output location via writeall.

If your custom datastore subclasses from matlab.io.datastore.FileWritable, then it inherits a validateOutputLocation method that ensures that the output location is a string. If you want to perform additional validation of the output location, then you must implement your own validateOutputLocation method in the subclass.
