Specifying attributes of objects created in GUIDE

1 view (last 30 days)
I'm creating a UI using GUIDE. It is important that I position items in the UI in exact locations. I can only approximately position objects using the mouse to move the objects around. Is there a command line method to specify - for instance - exact coordinates of a button's position i.e., [1.0, 1.0, 2.0, 1.5]?

If you want to do this in guide you can get there in 3 steps:
1.) right click on your object
2.) chose 'Property Inspector'
3.) go to 'Location and Size' (Group Properties) or 'Position (List Properties)

That was the first thing I tried, but the location and position fields aren't editable in the Property Inspector.

Wooops, I'm a little slow. I didn't notice that 'Position' can be opened, then you can edit x, y, width, and height.

set(handles.yourButton,'Units', 'pixels') %If your position is in pixels
set(handles.yourButton,'Position', [1.0, 1.0, 2.0, 1.5])

yeah, except set and get don't seem to work when you're doing GLIDE.
