engGetVisible (C)

Determine visibility of MATLAB engine session

C Syntax

#include "engine.h"
int engGetVisible(Engine *ep, bool *value);



Engine pointer


Pointer to value returned from engGetVisible


Microsoft Windows Operating Systems Only

0 on success, and 1 otherwise.


engGetVisible returns the current visibility setting for MATLAB® engine session, ep. A visible engine session runs in a window on the Windows® desktop, thus making the engine available for user interaction. MATLAB removes an invisible session from the desktop.


The following code opens engine session ep and disables its visibility.

Engine *ep;
bool vis;

ep = engOpen(NULL);
engSetVisible(ep, 0);

To determine the current visibility setting, use:

engGetVisible(ep, &vis);
