I would like to associate my uiextras.Panel with a window that displays some help text. I struggle to find a way how this can be done. I guess I could add this as a child to the panel, but since all panels look differently it is difficult to come up with a homogeneous way of doing this.
The simplest would be to add a callback to the title of the panel or, perhaps more elegant, add a button with a question mark all the way to the right of the top of the panel, i.e. on the opposite side of the title text, that has a callback to the help window. Is any of this possible?
A (long) while ago I commented here and complained that the different uicontrols, more specifically their text, are not vertically aligned. Using Yairs findjobj one can actually align them by directly operating with the underlying java object. Before I forget again how to do it I provide here the updated example:
I have a problem with uiextras.Panel. If I execute the code below then the colorbar is in the wrong position, lying over the axes. This can be cured by uncommenting the pause statement or replacing uiextras.Panel with a conventional uipanel, both not very satisfactory solutions. Am I doing something wrong?
f = figure
p = uiextras.Panel('Parent', f);
c = uicontainer( 'Parent', p );
a = axes('Parent', c);
Thanks for this toolbox!
Several members have mentioned issues integrating their existing GUIDE layouts with this tool. I found a workaround that did the trick for me.
I was not able to re-parent an existing object (panel or table) into this layout. However, you can create a new GUIDE panel within, for example, an HBox and you can re-parent each item from your existing panel to this new one, then delete your old panel.
new_HBox = uiextras.HBox;
new_GUIDE_panel = uipanel('Parent',new_HBox,'BorderType','none');
children = get(old_GUIDE_panel,'Children');
As long as your original and new panels are equal size, all the objects will be positioned as expected in the newly created panel.
William, This suggestion isn't specific to the GLT, but if you open a command window and launch the executable from there you will be able to see what error is being thrown that takes down the program.
I am using the Layout Toolbox. It is really great tool.
I encounter a problem when delpoying the developed GUI into a *.exe file using the MATLAB deploytool function. The developed GUI can be converted into *.exe file, but when starting *.exe file, it appears quickly and closed by windows immediately. I have tried the demoBrowser.m example, the same error appears. BTW, I'm using it on 32-bit Windows 7 OS.
Any idea on the reason for this?
I am using the Matlab Layout Toolbox too, nice tool, congrats :).
One thing i am interested in is, to cut my application down, if i created a figure with this toolbox and a uipanel and in the uipanel i want to create an axes so it should looks like this:
figure_handle = figure('Position',[(screensize(3)-1100)/2 (screensize(4)-600)/2-20 ...
1100 600],'NumberTitle','off','Name','Test1','ResizeFcn',@ResizeFcnCB, 'HandleVisibility','off','CloseRequestFcn',@CloseRequestFcnCB,'Renderer','OpenGL','PaperPositionMode','auto');
handle_uipanel = uipanel('Parent',figure_handle);
handle_axes = axes('Parent',handle_uipanel);
So then there is an axes, but without a box, i know the command box on and i tried to set it on with:
but then i only can see two lins on top and on the right of the axes. But i want to see a whole box, lines on the top, bottom, right and left.
If i create a figure and plot something into without using the Toolbox it works.
There have been some discussion on this forum recently about GUI Layout Toolbox and R2014b, as there will be significant changes to MATLAB graphics in that release.
* The current public release of GUI Layout Toolbox is not compatible with R2014b.
* We will release an R2014b-compatible version of GUI Layout Toolbox on MATLAB Central at the time of product general release.
* A beta version for R2014b is currently being tested. If you need access during the R2014b prerelease period then please contact Ben and me by email with a brief description of your requirement.
