Dear "dont ask",
What is your real name?

More importantly everything you ask is in the comments in the code, and the specialized heavy lifting is all separated out into the only other .m file. I'm left to wonder: did you even look at the code?

on another note, Tabs in guis is over a decade old (VB anyone?), that mathworks can't figure out how to add this to their basic gui builder is beyond ridiculous.

To organize complex guis, I now just have one gui call another because it is a pain to go back through LAYERS of objects to edit any of them.

What do you call to change tabs in the code? Also how do you determine the current tab you are on in the code?

This is a good simple example of how to mimic tabs in Matlab GUIs. In our own code we can make small changes to make tabs more realistic.

This example is useless. It doesn't have any look and feel of the tabbed environment.

Good, just what i am looking for. Tested under win 2k with matlba released121, working perfect. But under win 98 and NT with matlab released 12, error found.
