Ask User to Continue

Asked by manish sharma on 30 Nov 2011
Accepted Answer by Naz

Hi,

I am interested in asking the user to continue the code execution.

If he enters 'Y', it should make the code to run again from the start. Otherwise for 'N' it should stop.

I think, it will start with something like this:

 m=input('Do you want to continue, Y/N [Y]:','s')

Please help

Thanks

Set the infinite loop. I did not check if this code runs, but the idea is this:

while(1)
%%your code here
m=input('Do you want to continue, Y/N [Y]:','s')
if m=='N'
break
end
end

Also, to avoid check up for extra cases from user input I would use function 'menu' instead of 'input':

while(1)
%%your code here
choice = menu('Press yes no','Yes','No');
if choice==2 | choice==0
   break;
end
end

You also can create a dummy variable and set it to zero in the 'if' statement:

x=1;
while(x)

if ...
x=0;
end
end

Hey Naz,

That worked.

Thanks!

promptMessage = sprintf('Do you want to Continue processing,\nor Cancel to abort processing?');
button = questdlg(promptMessage, 'Continue', 'Continue', 'Cancel', 'Continue');
if strcmpi(button, 'Cancel')
	return; % Or break or continue
end
