Problem loading .h library into MATLAB

Postby gre0012017 » Tue Feb 07, 2017 11:27 am


I have the PhidgetBridge 4-Input, and I am trying to run the loadphidget21.m file in MATLAB, using the code that was given here online. I am receiving the following errors any time I try to run it, however, I have moved all of the phidget libraries into MATLAB library, so I am not sure why it is not working. I hope someone has run into the same problem so they can shed some light on this topic as well. Thank yoU!!

%loadphidget21.m - Loads the phidget21 library, paying attention to OS,
%suppressing warnings.
function loadphidget21

if not(libisloaded('phidget21'))
warning off MATLAB:loadlibrary:TypeNotFound
warning off MATLAB:loadlibrary:TypeNotFoundForStructure
switch computer
case 'PCWIN'

case 'PCWIN64'
[notfound,warnings]=libisloaded('phidget21.lib', 'phidget21Matlab_Windows_x64.h');
%case 'MAC'
%case 'MACI'
%case 'MACI64'
% [notfound,warnings]=loadlibrary('/Library/frameworks/Phidget21.framework/Versions/Current/Phidget21', 'phidget21Matlab.h', 'alias', 'phidget21');
%case 'GLNX86'
%case 'GLNXA64'
%[notfound,warnings]=loadlibrary('/usr/lib/', 'phidget21Matlab.h', 'alias', 'phidget21');


>> loadphidget21
Error using libisloaded
Library name must be a string.

Error in loadphidget21 (line 13)
[notfound,warnings]=libisloaded('phidget21.lib', 'phidget21Matlab_Windows_x64.h');

I am having the same problem. I was wondering if you had figured out the solution to this. I cant seem to get this lib downloaded.

Judging by the error message, the problem isn't with Phidgets libraries but with the "libisloaded" Matlab function. Does libisloaded work for your other Matlab libraries?
