It is common to write GUI-driven applications which require end users to pass in some variables from the workspace when calling the function to launch the GUI, e.g. myPlottingGUI(X,Y)
UIGETVARIABLES allows your users to interactively select workspace variables from a dialog instead of having to type variable names when launching your app. You can restrict which types of variables are allowed for each input, making it easier for users to successfully pass the right data into your app.
I would also propose to pick a column or a line from an array.
To be honest it's a bit painful to spilt a workspace into several arrays to make the GUI usable.
Looking forward to have it working !
Great suggestion, Michael. There's no easy way to do it right now. Ideally, I guess the interface would treat structs (and tables) like workspaces, and allow you to drill into them to pick individual variables.
Anybody out there want to take a stab at adding this enhancement?
