Hello,
Is it possible to immediatly break out from a loop upon callback, meaning without waiting the loop to finish the commands its doing?
For example, I have a GUI with a button giving Button.Value=0 or 1 if pressed or not
My code is structured like this:
while someconditions
%doAction1
pause(60)
%doAction2
pause(60)
end
But if I do:
while someconditions && Button.Value==1
%doAction1
pause(60)
%doAction2
pause(60)
end
or
while someconditions &&
if Button.Value==1
%doAction1
else
break
end
pause(60)
if Button.Value==1
%doAction2
else
break
end
pause(60)
end
then pressing the Button will not immediatly stop the loop but rather finish all the commands, including long pauses. For example, if I press the button in the middle of a pause, then I will have to wait before the loop breaks.
Sorry to bother but I searched extensively and didnt really find something.
I'm using Matlab2019b with the AppDesigner.
Thanks !
