Open RoadRunner project using MATLAB

Since R2022a



    openProject(rrApp,projectFolder) opens RoadRunner to a new scene in the specified project projectFolder. The project must already exist. If the specified project is already open, RoadRunner still opens a new scene.

    Open a project in RoadRunner using the roadrunner function by specifying the location in which to create a project. This example assumes that RoadRunner is installed in its default location in Windows.

    Specify the path to an existing project. For example, this code shows the path to a project located on C:\RR\MyProject. The function returns a roadrunner object, rrApp, that provides functions for performing basic workflow tasks such as opening, closing, and saving scenes and projects.

    projectFolder = "C:\RR\MyProject";
    rrApp = roadrunner(projectFolder);

    Specify a different project folder. Use the openProject function to create a new scene in the second RoadRunner project.

    newProjectFolder = "C:\My New Project";

    Input Arguments

    RoadRunner application associated with a project, specified as a roadrunner object. This object provides functions for performing common workflow tasks such as opening, closing, and saving scenes and projects. rrApp provides functions that support importing data from files and exporting scenes to other formats from RoadRunner.

    RoadRunner project folder path, specified as a character vector or string scalar. Use this argument to specify the project folder in which to create a new scene when opening RoadRunner. For details about the RoadRunner project folder structure, see RoadRunner Project and Scene System (RoadRunner).

    Example: roadrunner("C:\My New Project") specifies to create a new scene in theMy New Project folder when opening RoadRunner on a Windows® machine.
