=== Features that are not implemented ===
+
=== Supported Features ===
 
 
* '''enumeration'''
 
 
 
Octave should be able to parse the enumeration section of a classdef definition but nothing is done with it.  Progress on this feature is tracked in bug report {{bug|44582}}.
 
 
 
* '''events and listeners'''
 
 
 
Octave should be able to parse the events section of a classdef definition but nothing is done with it.  Progress on this feature is tracked in bug report {{bug|56194}}.
 
 
 
* '''built-in class as superclass'''
 
 
 
Octave does not allow subclassing built-in classes.  In Matlab, classdef objects may subclass built-in integer, floating point, and logical types.  For example,
 
 
<source lang="octave">
 
classdef nonsense < uint32
 
  ...
 
end
 
</source>
 
 
 
does not work.
 
 
 
Progress on this feature is tracked in bug report {{bug|44035}}.
 
 
 
* '''concatenation of classdef objects'''
 
 
 
Octave does not support concatenation of classdef objects to create classdef array objects.
 
 
 
Example:
 
 
 
<source lang="octave">
 
classdef MyClass < handle
 
end
 
 
 
c = MyClass();
 
cc = [c, c];  % won't work
 
</source>
 
 
 
For now you can use a cell-array of objects instead:
 
<source lang="octave">
 
cc = {c, c};  % ok
 
</source>
 
 
 
Progress on this feature is tracked in bug report {{bug|44665}}.
 
 
 
* '''Saving and loading classdef objects'''
 
 
 
Saving and loading classdef objects is not supported.
 
 
 
Progress on this feature is tracked in bug report {{bug|45833}}
