when I run the code:

```function [shape] = Classify(ImageFile)
GRAY = rgb2gray(RGB);
else
RGB=GRAY;
end
```
```threshold = graythresh(GRAY);
BW = im2bw(GRAY, threshold);
```
```%Invert the Binary Image
BW = ~ BW;
[~,L] = bwboundaries(BW, 'noholes');
```
```STATS = regionprops(L,'all');
```
```for i=1:length(STATS)
```
```if norm([STATS(i).Extrema(2,1), STATS(i).Extrema(2,2)]-[STATS(i).Extrema(1,1), STATS(i).Extrema(1,2)])<5 %TR,TL
%can be triangle hexagon pentagon
if norm([STATS(i).Extrema(4,1), STATS(i).Extrema(4,2)]-[STATS(i).Extrema(3,1), STATS(i).Extrema(3,2)])<5 %RT,RB
%can be pentagon triangle
if  norm([STATS(i).Extrema(4,1), STATS(i).Extrema(4,2)]-[STATS(i).Extrema(5,1), STATS(i).Extrema(5,2)])<5 %RT,RB,BR = Triangle
shape(i,1)=1; % Triangle
else
shape(i,1)=3; % Pentagon
end
else
shape(i,1) = 4; % hexagon
end
elseif (STATS(i).MajorAxisLength/STATS(i).MinorAxisLength<1.1 && STATS(i).Eccentricity <0.5 || (STATS(i).Solidity/STATS(i).Extent)==1)&(STATS(i).Area<0.1*numel(GRAY))
shape(i,1)=2; % Rectangle
else
shape(i,1)=0;
end
end
```
```if ~isempty(find(shape==2))
disp('Rectangle found');
else
disp('No rectangle in the image')
end
```
```return
```

I've the error "??? Input argument "ImageFile" is undefined.

Error in ==> Classify at 3 if ndims(imread(ImageFile))>2"

How did you run this code?

This file is a function, it should be called: in the windows Matlab command, type

```shape = Classify(ImageFile)
```

Look at Function

this shape function will be called from Classify.m file. Right?

BW = ~ BW;

What does it mean?

@Sahila parvin: This toggles the value of the black&white pixels.

Put this at the beginning of your function:

```if nargin < 1
[baseFileName, folder] = uigetfile();
ImageFile = fullfile(folder, baseFileName);
end
```

my basefile is circle.jpg and folder is E:\4-1\image-thesis\implementation\shaila

what I've to write?

if nargin < 1

```[circle.jpg, E:\4-1\image-thesis\implementation\shaila] = uigetfile();
```
```ImageFile = fullfile(E:\4-1\image-thesis\implementation\shaila, circle.jpg);
```

end

Why didn't you do what I said? It would have worked. You changed it so that it won't/can't work! uigetfile() returns what you chose into two variables, so you can't hard code some variables into there - they will be filled with whatever filename the user selects.
