Matlab Guide Table. Need Help. Thanks

Asked by Melvin on 7 Sep 2012
Latest activity Commented on by Le Huy on 11 Apr 2014

Hi everyone! I am working on a project where I will be using Matlab GUIDE/GUI. What I want to happen actually focuses on a component in GUIDE called the Table.

Here's how I want the program to work: The table in GUIDE (let's say m by n) is initially empty(no values). When the program is executed/ran, I want to input the given to the cells of the table (Not all cells are occupied there are still some cells empty). As I click a button perhaps, there will be calculations being processed and then I want the results (many of them) to come out of the empty cells in the table. So if you look at the table, all cells are now occupied (consisting of the given and the results). Thus, the table is completed.

Now, my problems are: 1. I do not know how to set-up the table such that I can input values when the program is executed. 2. What code should I use to "get" the inputted given values so that I can perform calculations? 3. What code should I use to "show" the results from the calculation to the vacant cells of the table.

Please help me in this. Better yet, may I ask for links which is related to my concern. Thank you very much.

PS: My program is a Load Flow Analyzer specifically on Gauss Seidel Method. Thank you! :)

If you are familiar with handles in matlab that is similar to how you update data in GUI components.

Hi Leah, Thanks for the reply. This is not actually my first time doing GUI's in Matlab. I am familiar especially on programming involving edit text, static text, push buttons. But I just don't know how to use the table/uitable.

Melvin, you just set up an array to hold your numbers, then set the 'data' property of the table:

tableData = rand(2,2);
set(handles.uitable1, 'data', tableData);

hello every body! I got the same problem with Melvin that is: I want to set my results those have an unfixed size of array to the UITABLE on my GUI! so how can I do it?And how is the code to use with this situation? sincerely!

I don't understand the grammar of this "I want to set my results those have an unfixed size of array to the UITABLE on my GUI!" Perhaps get another English speaker to proofread it.
