Addlistener error: Undefined function for input arguments of type 'matlab.ui.Figure'.

24 views (last 30 days)
I am using addlistener in my openingFcn like this
handles.viewCAM_handles.listener = addlistener(viewCAM_handles.slider_master,'Value', 'PostSet',@(eventdata,viewCAM_handles)slider_master_continuousCallback(hObject,eventdata,handles));
But i get the error: Undefined function 'slider_master_continuousCallback' for input arguments of type 'matlab.ui.Figure'. Why can't I use a figure as input argument for my callback? What should I use instead, I tried with hObject but it gave me the same error.

I do not know why you are getting that error, but you need to change your code:
handles.viewCAM_handles.listener = addlistener(viewCAM_handles.slider_master,'Value', 'PostSet', @(hObject, eventdata) slider_master_continuousCallback(hObject, eventdata, handles));
and keep in mind that the handles that will be passed will not include handles.viewCAM_handles.listener because it will be passed by value with the value as of the line before (because the right hand side is evaluated before the left)

Oh sorry, forgot to write that the slider is in another .m - file. I have several gui's but the main gui and it's m-file is where i use addlistener. The reason is because in the continuouscallback in the other m-file is using handles from the main m-file. if i don't put addlistener in the main file the continuouscallback function doesn't have the right handles from the main m file.
It's hard to explain but maybe you understand?
Maybe i just did it wrong with the handles when i didn't have addlistener in my main file?
