'GUIDE' table from imported values

1 view (last 30 days)
Hello all,
Hoping you can help, ive been going round in circles the last few days trying to get this very basic guide application to work.
The push button runs a .m file. this then breaks the file up into 4 column vectors each with 10 entires , A, B, C and D.
How do i get these vectors to appear up when i press the push button to initial the script.
Ive tried going through the tutourials, just cant seem to make it work. currently using 2019a
Thanks in advance!

Joe - I think that you will want to convert your script (myscript.m) into a function so that it returns a 4x10 matrix (not a table - no need to convert using array2table) that your callback function will then use to populate the table. Something like
function myPushbutton_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles)
% call your function to get the data
myData = myFunction();
% populate the table
set(handles.uitable1, 'Data', myData);
Note that you may need to massage the myData so that it is a cell array (I can't remember off the top of my head).
Your function will look something like
function [data] = myFunction
data = [];
% read the data from file
data = [A B C D];
or something similar to the above.

Hello Joe Gee,
Since, your Pushbutton is running the script (i.e. executing the functions) but not diplaying the results. It means you have not defined the output for your table.
In order to show the results in a table.
You have to add following command in Pushbutton function:
set(handles.uitable1, 'Data', NameOfYourVariableThatContains4Vectors);
I hope, this will work.
