File Information

Wrappers improve Matlab graphical components with two major features:
 - callbacks are replaced by events.
 - any property can be synchronize with another object's property.

Note: This class needs MagicListener:

Observe (and run) the class DemoWrapper to see a demonstration of wrappers.

@Kritian - A big old try-catch can do the job. An updated version is incoming.

Beautiful work. However, a couple of changes have been done to the underlying graphical components in recent versions of MATLAB. For instance CellEditFcn and CellSelectionFcn have been replaced by CellEditCallback and CellSelectionCallback, respectively, at least in 2012a.
Do you know if there is a way for the wrappers to detect the version and fork to the correct names?

@Sam - Funny bug. That's append when you load a figure whith hgload and try to construct a wrapper around it. You can see, if you are interested by the topic, more informations about the bug here:

I'll make an update quickly to fix the issue.

So useful, sometimes I can't understand why matlab doesn't document it events behaviour for the graphical elements. Thanks for this good submission, it makes the work simplier x)
