Navigating with keyboard through app designer uitable

11 views (last 30 days)
I am using app designer in Matlab 2017b to display an editable uitable, in which the user needs to fill a substantial number of cells. When I created a similar table with GUIDE, the user could simply navigate from one cell to the next using the cursor and tab keys. This does not seem to work with the app designer table. Is this functionality not implemented yet, and if so, is there a work-around, and will it be available in a future release? Thanks!

Hi Jens,
The ability to use the up/down arrows and tab key for navigation in a uitable located in a uifigure is not available in MATLAB 9.3 (R2017b). There are no workarounds but using the mouse for navigation.

Thanks. I hope this will be possible in a future release. In the meantime, is there at least a way to select a cell programatically? This way the next cell could be automatically selected for data entry when a number is entered into one cell, making it possible to enter larger amounts of data quickly without having to use the mouse.
