Hi!
I have created a GUI with a piano in matlab. My problem is I want the colour of the pushbuttons at top to be black to make it look more like a Piano, but I'm only able to change the frame colour not the backround colour.

What is the "frame color"? You can set the 'backgorundcolor' of buttons. And when I open your FIG file, the buttons are black.
Are you running this on a Mac, where the button colors are controlled by the operating system?

Instead of setting the BackgroundColor property, you can use the CData property to superimpose an image onto your button. (This at least worked on Macs several years ago, i haven't tried it recently) If you can draw the button you want, e.g. in photoshop, you can then import it to use on your button.
As a test, try setting the CData property to zeros(m,n,3) where m and n are the width and height of your button in pixels.

What if you only want the colour of a pushbutton to change temporarily when you click it. Then go back to normal colour once you click another button?
