Combining Pushbutton and Program to Read CSV

11 views (last 30 days)
Hi, I'm a beginner in Matlab
I have made a program in Matlab on the Command Window to import a .csv file. The coding is (step 1):
y=csvimport('apnea.csv); %apnea is the name of file that I want to open
Well, it has worked and produced a variable (step 2) in the Workspace (with name: y, and value <1002x2cell> )
My question is how to connect the program in the Command Window to the Editor GUI:
% --- Executes on button press in Button_Open.
function Button_Open_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles)
% hObject handle to Button_Open (see GCBO)
% eventdata reserved - to be defined in a future version of MATLAB
% handles structure with handles and user data (see GUIDATA)
...???
so that when the push button is pressed, it will make the process of generating step 1 (import csv) and produced a variabel in step 2?? Have not found the way
Thanks

When you create any variable in function, its scope is limited to the function workspace. In matlab, each function has its own workspace.
In your case, you have imported csv in function Button_Open_Callback. So variable will be created in its workspace. So you can see this in base workspace.
You can export the variable from function to base workspace using
y=evalin('base','y');

Hi Dimas,
Actually you can import csv in the callback. But if you have good reason to do that in base workspace (what you mean by command window), you can also access to the base by EVALIN.
evalin('base','y=0:10');
y=evalin('base','y');
Hope this is what you need!
