uigetdir not working in standalone application

9 views (last 30 days)
I have created a gui which uses uigetdir in one of the pushbuttons and it works in matlab application, but when converted to standalone application the 'select directory' is not showing up. Any idea to what should be done?

Udit - please claraify what you mean by the select directory is not showing up. Is this the path that you are passing in (as an input parameter) to uigetdir? Are you passing the full path to the selected directory or is it a relative path?

I got the application to work, the error was not with uigetdir but with a report that was not compilable, when i complied the application. I used makeDOMCompilable() as a work around and now it works. Sorry for wasting your time.

Still, if you're using R2018a, you will have a problem, as I mentioned in my Answer below.

This is a known bug in release R2018a.
You either have to use the workaround they suggest, or go back to R2017b.

In update 4 the bug is listed as fixed, have you tried it? In my code didn't worked, I have to still use the workaround

It works for me using update 4. Try reinstalling update 4 perhaps?
