hi everyone, my question is: it's possible to set visibility for each column and row inside a uitable?

Not with pure Matlab. The level of customisation of uitable is very limited using only Matlab functionality. It may be possible using java programming of the underlying components as described in various posts on Yair Altman's blog but I don't recall seeing anything explicitly about visibility.
Can't you just dynamically add and remove rows and columns you want hidden?

thanks for the answer. By the way, my idea was to use some checkboxes, and some "set" function to set visibility of the columns (or rows). if i have to use more code lines, it become quite hard because they're 26 columns.

Hello Daniele Morello,
You can just change the ColumnWidth to hide(invisible) the column
If you want to hide column 4 in uitable you can set the below property value
I know am too late to answer this question, but it will be helpful for others

I have the same problem. I have created a table with 3 columns in app designer but I want enable or disable some rows to see the change in a graph without using a checkbox.
