i've 3 panels in my gui and each panel contain sone buttons,edit boxes and static text and so on....
i want when panel 1 is enabled the other two panels take the apperance of dimmed one...
i used the command:
set(handles.uipanel1,'visible','on');
set(handles.uipanel2,'visible','off');
set(handles.uipanel3,'visible','off');
what it does is it enables the panel 1 and totally disable the next two i.e it removes the appearance from the gui... i want the other two panels i.e panel 2 and panel 3 remain as such but in dimmes appearance..
like if we right click on desktop, then the popup menu occurs has the option PASTE and PASTE SHORTCUT are in dimmed appearance....
can u tell me which piece of code should i use in order to get the output as i require....
plz help me...........

You set the 'Visibility' to 'off' and in consequence the object is not visible anymore. Most likely you want to disable the objects only, such that the 'Enable' property is suiting. I assume you have to disable the children of the panel, not the panel itself:
ChildList = get(handles.uipanel2, 'Children');
set(ChildList, 'Enabled', 'off');

Then simply add:
set(handles.uipanel2, 'Enable', 'off');

@Jassy: Oh, sorry. What should the "disabling" of a panel do?

As for dimming the panel itself, will changing the 'BackgroundColor' property suffice for you? For example, the following code will darken the panel by 10%.
clr = get(handles.uipanel2,'BackgroundColor');
set(handles.uipanel2,'BackgroundColor',0.9*clr);
