stop(t) stops the timer object, t. If t is an array of timer objects, the stop method stops each timer.
The stop method sets the Running property of the timer object to 'off' and executes the StopFcn callback .
Use the stop method to stop a timer manually. The timer automatically stops when the TimerFcn callback executes the number of times specified by the ExecutionMode and TasksToExecute properties or when an error occurs while executing a TimerFcn callback.
Object of class timer.
Create a timer object that generates 100 random numbers and executes one million times. Define a StopFcn callback that displays the message 'Timer has stopped.' Start the timer and verify the timer is running
t = timer('TimerFcn','rand(100,1);',... 'ExecutionMode','fixedSpacing','TasksToExecute',1e6,... 'StopFcn','disp(''Timer has stopped.'')'); start(t) t.Running
ans = on
Manually stop the timer and verify it is no longer running. Delete the timer.
stop(t) t.Running delete(t)
Timer has stopped. ans = off
