Closing as duplicate of bug #62420.

This should already be fixed for Octave 7.2.

Could you please check with the release candidate whether that will work correctly for you now? You could download a Windows installer of the release candidate from here:

Using validateattributes as validator for addParameter of inputParser has no return value, so the validate_arg method fails during executing the if(! val(in)) line in "./Octave-7.1.0/mingw64/share/octave/7.1.0/m/miscellaneous/inputParser.m"

My solution:

<<< original <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    function validate_arg (this, name, val, in)

      if (! val (in))
        this.error (sprintf ("failed validation of %s with %s",
                             toupper (name), func2str (val)));
      this.Results.(name) = in;


>>>>> mod >>>>>>>>>>>>>

    function validate_arg (this, name, val, in)

         val (in);
         val (in);
         if (! val (in))
           this.error (sprintf ("failed validation of %s with %s",
                       toupper (name), func2str (val)));
       this.Results.(name) = in;
