Input Arguments

Document to apply numbering stream to, specified as an mlreportgen.dom.Document object.

Consider using a name that indicates the kinds of document element (for example, a chapter heading) that you expect to apply the stream to.

Use one of these letters to specify the type of characters to use for the numbering values.

  • 'n' — Arabic numerals (you can also use 'N')

  • 'a'— Lowercase alphabetic letters (a, b, c,...)

  • 'A' — Uppercase alphabetic letters (A, B ,C,...)

  • 'i' — Lowercase Roman numerals (i, ii, iii,...)

  • 'I' — Uppercase Roman numerals (I, II, III,...)

Use a number, regardless of the type of stream. The initial value used by the stream depends on the type of stream. For example, if you set initialValue to 0:

  • Arabic numeral stream — 0

  • Alphabetic stream — a or A

  • Roman numerals stream — i or I

Data Types: double
