Reposition image in app

12 views (last 30 days)
I am the author of a MATLAB app where I'd like to add a logo (as a uiimage) to the upper right corner of my UIFigure window.
When I resize my main app window (app.UIFIgure) the logo (app.Image) is not repositioned
I'd like it to keep the distance from the top and from the right side - how can you do that,
When I add a resizefcn to my UIFigure I get the warning message:
Warning: 'SizeChangedFcn' callback will not execute while 'AutoResizeChildren' is set to 'on'.

I understand that you want to retain the figure at same place when the app is resized. There are a couple of ways to acheive this behavior.
1. Using the 'SizeChangedFcn' callback by 'AutoResizeChildren' is set to 'off'. The below snippet helps you to put the image in same place when app is resized.
function UIFigureSizeChanged(app, event)
position = app.UIFigure.Position;
app.Image.Position = [position(3)-17-100 position(4)-65-100 100 100];

Thank you.
That kinda worked although it'll be preferable to me to keep the AutoResizeChildren to 'on' for all my other graphic elements.
It was feasible for this particular application though.
