Does anyone know a way to change the window title name on my guide created GUI figure? I created an application for my company and I was able to change the window figure icon using the following code:
javaFrame = get(hObject,'JavaFrame');
Now I would like to be able to also change the gui figure window title.
I tried:
javaFrame.setTitle('Water Quality Data Base'));
However this did not work with the following error:
No appropriate method, property, or field setTitle for class
Error in water_Quality_DB>water_Quality_DB_OpeningFcn (line
javaFrame.setTitle('Water Quality Data Base');
Error in gui_mainfcn (line 221)
feval(gui_State.gui_OpeningFcn, gui_hFigure, [],
guidata(gui_hFigure), varargin{:});
Error in water_Quality_DB (line 42)
gui_mainfcn(gui_State, varargin{:});
I do not want to do a File > Save as in guide to rename the .m and .fig files because I specifically want the title to be 'Water Quality Data Base' and it is not possible to rename a file using a string with spaces. I do not want to use underscores.
Is there any way to accomplish what I want to do?
Thank you!

I answered my own question, and the answer is simple. All you need to do is use guide and right click the background of your gui and edit the "Name" property.
This will change the window title name.

You can do it using the code
set(handles.figure1, 'Name', 'New Name');
