Simple user interface with possibility to pick any color and determine MATLAB code for chosen color. It makes possible to copy determined color code en paste it to your color specification within m-file of other program code. This color specification is not RGB value but percentage of RGB. I'm found it useful if you want to assign many colors in your program code and you want to determine a percentage easily.

This makes color selection a breese!



Kind of redundant. There is already one available within Matlab environment. Just type "uisetcolor". But Thanks none the less for the effort :).


Nedim: Brilliant !!!

Hi people,

The source code of this tool sits actually in the fig-file. You have to open it in the guide and then check the callbacks for each button.

If somebody don't manage to find source code, please let me know.

Cheers, Nedim

Indeed it is the same as UISETCOLOR, only weaker.

Rasmus Anthin

Isn't this just like UISETCOLOR??
