Help: Display a different layout when pushing a button in a GUI?

1 view (last 30 days)
Hi all,
I'm trying to write a programmatic GUI. It includes a push button and a edit text named "tab1" when it initializes. Then when I hit the button the edit text "tab1" will be hidden and the GUI will show the edit text "tab2" which was invisible before hitting the button. I also attached my code which doesn't work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The reason your code doesn;t work - is that when the callback for the pushbutton is created the variable S.tab1 doesn't exist. If you moved the pushbutton creation to the end then it would work.
It looks like you are trying to build a GUI with tabs?

Didn't see your code. In your push button callback function write: set("edit box id",'String','tab2'), where "edit box id" is your edit box identifier (It appears when you create it.)

Hi, no problem. What I recommend to you is to download something in Matlab exchanger and use it as a template for a first time, before you get enough experience.
