uigetfile multiple files into the listbox

13 views (last 30 days)
Hi Friends. I am designing a simple GUI, which has a listbox and a pushbutton.
- The Pushbutton allows the user to select multiple files. I use uigetfile. I can run this step pretty well. My code here is :
if true
function edit1_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles)
% hObject handle to edit1 (see GCBO)
% eventdata reserved - to be defined in a future version of MATLAB
% handles structure with handles and user data (see GUIDATA)
set(handles.edit1, 'Max', 10);
set(handles.edit1, 'Min', 0);
[FileName, PathName] = uigetfile('*.m','Select the MATLAB code file', 'MultiSelect' , 'on');
set(handles.edit1,'String',{PathName FileName})
- Next I want to display the names of all the files selected, into the very same listbox. I am not bale to achieve that. I get this error
Please help me achieve the next step.
Regards Alok

File = strcat(PathName, FileName);
set(handles.edit1, 'String', File);
Your code {PathName FileName} does the following:
  1. FileName is a {n x 1} cell string (or {1 x n}?)
  2. PathName is a string.
  3. {PathName FileName} is a cell, which contains a string in the first cell and a cell string in the second one. But you want a cell string with concatenated string.
