It's an informative video, but it would be better if we could stream the 7MB video from somewhere, rather than download and unzip a 12MB file.

Very helpful and well done. I hope you continue this video tutorial approach. It would be nice to see a series of videos that continue to get a bit further in depth as you progress through them. Thanks.

27 Jun 2007 Dave Welch

Wsih it was more in depth, but a great starting point if you're feeling a bit overwhelmed!

05 Jun 2007 Atte J

Hi, the video saved me a lot of time of going through the documentation and enabled me to have a quick understanding about GUIDE. I'd like to see more these kind of crash course videos.

It was a short and crisp video to help beginners get started with Matlab GUI. It was very informative.

Please educate us more on how we could input matrices into a GUI edit-text component.

I have been trying to develop GUIs where a matrix of around 100 elements needs to be provided as input to the GUI for data analysis. However, I have been encountering problems whereby only the first element of my matrix is being recognized by the GUI. I used the EDIT TEXT component in the GUIDE for matrix inputs.

Also, it would be very useful if you could publish videos showing how we could make use of the advanced audio/video tools and other features in the ActiveX controls in the GUI?

26 Jan 2007 Lucio Fiamingo

Good but the video image is not very clear

23 Jan 2007 Abdulrahman Abutaleb

nice to begin with

28 Dec 2006 Evgeny S

Good start. It will be greate, if you tell a bit more about most often tasks in constructing GUI.

18 Dec 2006 Walter Schneider

Good. But would benefit from a listing of were do I go from here to learn more.

01 Dec 2006 Raja Vamsi

That was good and clean.

Excellent intro demonstrating ease of getting started. Now I'm looking for more and will take a look at Tutorial II.

the downloaded exe file not fully complete download, but can't remove it, therefore, i can't run my Matlab. Any solution?

Well, the TSCC.exe installs a codec. I can`t remove it from computer and am not happy about it. There are numerous ways of recording what`s happening on screen, but why this? At the end, there should be a mention that this is for absolute beginners !!! So please at least write the registry keys and files to be deleted manually. Thank you.

Thank you for you help

I did not like the .exe file but the video was nice.
You might want to say that it is very basic.

30 Jun 2005 Venu V

Basic Very Nice

06 Jun 2005 Ramli Saad

I like it..thanks

02 Jun 2005 Carlos Oliveira

More examples would be of further help. Still, very useful

30 May 2005 Herman Tan

very helpful...but if it comes with more examples it will be more and more helpful

27 May 2005 Roy Leung

This is very useful for starting a GUI.
The examples in 'Matlab Help' are very good.
But five minutes of demo would get me well on the way. For example getting to the right place to program the call back.
