% Demonstrate how to use a GUI to stop a FOR loop.
% Note that this file has both the GUI creation lines and the FOR loop, but
% that is not necessary. When the loop is stopped, the number of
% iterations completed will be displayed in the command window.
% Suggested exercise: Modify this program so that a FOR loop running in
% another M-File could call it and allow the loop to be stopped.
% Author: Matt Fig, with major idea from Jos(10584) on the FEX.

S.fh = figure('units','pix',...
'pos',[400 400 120 50],...
S.pb = uicontrol('string','Stop Loop!',...
'position',[10 10 100 30]);
n = 1;
drawnow; % Draw the GUI before we enter the loop!
% Below are two versions of the FOR loop which we wish to stop. The first
% version is simpler and close to the version which would be written if we
% didn't want a GUI to be able to stop its execution. The second version
% allows for more iterations because it does not execute the ISHANDLE
% function or use DRAWNOW every iteration, instead it executes the MOD
% function every iteration. To see the difference, run each loop for ten
% seconds before stopping with the GUI. The number of loop iterations will
% be displayed in the command window. What are some potential drawbacks of
% using the second method?
for ii = 1:inf % First loop, run EITHER this loop OR the next one.
if ~ishandle(S.fh) % Check if the figure exists.
drawnow; % Try it without this line to see what happens (Ctrl+R)!
n = n + 1; % Here is where all of the loop commands would go.
% for ii = 1:inf % Second loop, run EITHER this loop OR the previous one.
% if ~mod(ii,100)
% if ~ishandle(S.fh) % Check if the figure exists.
% drawnow; % Try it without this line to see what happens (Ctrl+R)!
% n = n + 1; % Here is where all of the loop commands would go.
% Display how many iterations the loop was able to complete.
