Usually I think MATLAB has excellent documentation, but there are occasions when I have to pull my hair out looking for something. So when referring to this example solution posted by TMW, it seems we can add an eventlistener to a uicontrol with an eventtype of 'ActionEvent'. But when I use this example I get the following warning message in r2011b:
Warning: The specified event will be removed in a future release. Please use the following event instead: ContinuousValueChange
So the obvious question is:
What are all of the choices when setting eventtypes for listeners?
I have searched everywhere I can think of for a list of such events but found nothing. Is this yet another instance of non-documentation in MATLAB or have I just not been able to find it?
Does anyone know of such a list in the doc? I want to find something like this list of axes properties but for events or listeners. On that list would be 'ActionEvent' and 'ContinuousValueChange' at least.
No products are associated with this question.
As the uicontrols use Java under the hood, see the available Java listeners at
The link above is now broken but I'll guess the UI was a slider or something of that sort which calls a stateChange rather than event listener.
MATLAB collapse these into their 'Callback'. I have always preferred to stick with documented components - so I use Java for GUIs in MATLAB not MATLAB uicontrols. TMW may not document them, but Sun/Oracle do of course.
