App Designer Components

App Designer provides a large set of components for designing modern, full-featured applications. The tables below list the components that are available in the Component Library:

  • Common Components — Include axes for creating plots, and several components that respond to interactions, such as buttons, sliders, drop-down lists, and trees.

  • Containers and Figure Tools — Include panels and tabs for grouping components, as well as menu bars.

  • Instrumentation — Include gauges and lamps for visualizing status, as well as knobs and switches for selecting input parameters.

  • Toolbox Components— Include toolbox authored UI components. Requires additional toolbox license and installation.

To add a component to your app, drag it onto the canvas from the Component Library. Then use the Inspector tab of the Component Browser to modify characteristics of the component, such as the color, font, or text.
