Hello everyone! I have a problem here and I really don't know how to start...
So... in my Diana directory I will have the following subfolders: Version_001, Version_002,etc. until Version_999. Each of these subfolders will contain a myfile.mat.
To understand better I will make an example.
I'm starting with myfile.mat file from Version_001. I am modifying the values of a parameter existing in myfile.mat. Next stept is to save this updated myfile.mat in Version_002 and so on.
what I want to do is to see the history of a selected parameter. Something like using a list in my GUI that should contain : Version_001 selected_parameter_values Version_002 selected_parameter_values . . . etc
How do you advise me to start?

Each time you save the parameter in a new .mat file, save that parameter to a new cell in a cell array. Then you can use a uitable to show all of your data.
Is that what you meant?

You can use the function to list all files and folders. Assuming you have each folder in the same location you can just create a loop.
pseudo code
for all directories
open file in folder
change stuff
save stuff
update GUI
Hopefully that helps, best of luck!
