I'm compiling a matlab handle object and instantiating it from Python using the Matlab Compiler Runtime.
I manage to call instance methods as it is done in this example https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/matlab_external/use-matlab-handle-objects-in-python.html
However, how can I get properties?, i.e., from the example in the link above how do I write in Python "b = tr.Base"

I can think of following three approaches:
  1. eng.getfield(tr, 'Base'). This getfield function is designed for structure, and it works for class but may not work in the future.
  2. eng.subsref(tr, {'type':'.','subs':'Base'}). This usage is a little tedious but should work in long term.
  3. Add a get method to the class for each property to be accessed by Python.
