I need to put a square in the middle of my 100x100 uiaxes on app designer. I tried using
But that just creates a new window when I click run. The shape needs to be in the axes.

Hello, try to use
rectangle(app.UIAxes, 'Position', [25,25,50,50])

Hey for drawing circles you can use rectangles with 'Curvature' set to [1 1] which will round corners of rectangle and you can achiev circle. Try to use:
rectangle(app.UIAxes, 'Position', [25,25,50,50], 'Curvature', [1 1])

Has anyone successfully used the viscircles function in app designer? I am getting the following error:
Error using uistack (line 53)
Functionality not supported with figures created with the uifigure function. For more information, see Graphics Support in App Designer.

I couldn't figure out how to use the viscircles but the rectangle function can do the same job.
By using the following for loop you will ensure that all detected circles are highlighted/filled
circlesize = 15;
cs = circlesize;
for i=1:max(size(centers))
rectangle('Parent', axisofinterest,'Position',[centers(i,:) -cs cs cs], 'Curvature',[1,1]);
This should work. You will obviously have to tweak the positioning parameters. Still, the viscircles is more desirable bcz its faster. If you figure out to incorporate viscircles, lemme know.
