Indicate the number of bytes available in the input buffer
BytesAvailable indicates the number of bytes currently available to be read from the input buffer. The property value is continuously updated as the input buffer is filled, and is set to
0 after the
fopen function is issued.
You can make use of
BytesAvailable only when reading data asynchronously. This is because when reading data synchronously, control is returned to the MATLAB command line only after the input buffer is empty. Therefore, the
BytesAvailable value is always 0. Refer to Reading Text Data to learn how to read data asynchronously.
BytesAvailable value can range from zero to the size of the input buffer. Use the
InputBufferSize property to specify the size of the input buffer. Use the
ValuesReceived property to return the total number of values read.
The default value is
